Touratech toolbox – BMW R 1200 GS/GSA

Touratech has just introduced a toolbox for the popular BMW R1200GS/ R1200GS Adventure. The optimal utilisation of space on the bike allows tools, first-aid kit, breakdown kit and many other useful items to remain on the motorcycle permanently and without interfering with luggage or riding. The 4.2 litre (approx) storage space is protected against water spray and a large opening makes loading and unloading easy, even when the cases are fitted to the bike. The lid can be removed completely for easier loading, while a safety mechanism prevents the loss of items.

For more information on Touratech products, visit, call 03 5929 5529, or follow the company on Facebook.
