The rear hugger in carbon for the Ducati Hypermotard and Multistrada is a direct replacement for the original component and contributes mainly to weight saving on the motorcycle (up to 70% less) and a higher stiffness of the parts.
Like all of Ilmberger carbon fibre parts, it was made according to the latest protocols and industry standards and can be considered to encompass all aspects of current best of industry practice. The part is made completely out of pre-preg carbon fibre materials using an autoclave. As with all Ilmberger carbon parts, we use a clear plastic coating that not only improves the appearance, but also protects the carbon fibre from scratching and has a unique UV resistance.The rear mudguard reduces considerably the amount of dirt and spray thrown up by the rear wheel and provides much needed protection to the shock absorber and the underseat area. Referring to the different models and types of motorcycles, the rear hugger incorporates different stock suspension and tire sizes.
