Newsworthy is our regular news update. Instead of killing your inboxes with re-hashed press releases or junk you don’t need, we’ll pull out a few interesting products, stories and other things we stumbled across from recent times, write our thoughts on them and let you read the info for yourself.
The team at AltRider are well known for being pretty darn good off-road riders. It shows in the products they build too. A few months back they threw us some pictures of a BMW S 1000 XR they we’re building that could manage the off-road, be useful some travel and shred on the tarmac. And that’s exactly what they’ve done. After starting life as a stock, white S 1000 XR, the development team at AltRider set themselves the task of creating the parts needed to keep the bike alive when riding in the terrain it wasn’t intended for. First up came the radiator protector, followed by a crash bar and fair mounted sump guard. It’s a combo that has only made the bike look better.
