    Hugger question

    Guys. I have just bought a 2015 CT and have a question regarding fitting a rear hugger.

    I was hoping to go genuine Honda. Am I right in saying that the genuine Honda hugger for the VFR1200F road bike is a direct bolt-on fit?

    Thanks in advance

    I'm not aware of an official hugger from Honda. I have an r&g racing one which does the job great. There are several others out there too.
    Honda C50, MZ250TS, Greeves 250, BMW F800GS, Honda CT Highlander

    You are correct.

    I have the F hugger on my mine. You can just see it below. Subtle and does its job.

    I fitted the R and G and had to replace it twice due to the lug that bolts to the swing arm breaking twice. They replaced free of charge but it was a pain to keep taking it off

    Pyramid plastics for me, had it 3 years, 20000 miles and just fitted it to my new CT, no problems.
