Best rear hugger for a KTM SMT

1 of 1

Q. Some time ago Trevor Franklin did a long-term test on a KTM 990SMT. I’m using my bike for the winter months getting to work and I remember Trevor saying that he fitted a new rear hugger.

He said it came as gloss black and showed us how to rub it down and respray it matt black. Who sells them and for how much?

A. The hugger came from Skidmarx and there are two variants. The fibreglass one is £82.95 and comes in seven colours, while the true carbon-fibre one is £139.95.
