The headlight cladding in carbon for the BMW R NineT replaces the original component using the original attachment points.
Most prominent are the weight savings (as a rule, a saving of approx. 70% compared to the original component) and increased rigidity.
The carbon part is made completely of pre-preg material in accordance with the newest guidelines in autoclaves and in the next step – as usual for us – it’s covered with a clear plastic cover to protect against impacts on the environment. This plastic covering exceeds the customary clear lacquer covering in the protective effect, scratch resistance, and durability to a large degree. But the covering does not only score technically, it also clearly underscores the three-dimensional effect of the carbon structure.
The cover behind the R NineT Racer headlight is mounted separately and covers the rear of the headlight towards the rider. The carbon components thus always improves the look of the area behind the cockpit for the rider. But also seen from the side it covers the gap for the technically required gap for the steering between the cockpit and headlight very well.
