Don’t let rocks or debris interfere with your fun. Install the AltRider Header Guard for the Ducati Multistrada 1200, and give your bike what it needs to play nice both on and off road.
Made of 1/8 inch anodized aluminum, the AltRider Header Guard attaches to the front cylinder head and the OEM skid plate. This provides important additional coverage for the expensive exhaust header, exposed section of the motor, and the header itself. The guard also prevents the OEM skid plate from filling with dirt and debris, which over time could become lodged in the engine and cause higher operating temperatures and upset the suspension.
Complement your existing skid plate in both design and fit with protection from the AltRider Header Guard.
Great looking protection
The skid guard was easy to install and looks great. It fits the sleek look of the Multi perfectly. I like the piece of mind it brings. I'll likely pick up their radiator guard once spring rolls around.

I bought this for my Pikes Peak Multistrada and am very satisfied with the craftsmanship of the product. Very durable and well designed. The only issue I had to address with it, was with how it interfered with my Evotech Performance parallel head guard. I addressed this by cutting the left tab (as it would be situated on the bike) off of it. If I had installed the AltRider head guard this wouldn't be an issue.
The finish really matches closely with the factory engine guards (skid plates) and from 10ft. away you can't tell that it's an aftermarket part. Would recommend to anyone that wants to protect that vulnerable front header pipe from stones.

Peace of mind!
I decided to buy this part for my MTS and I could not be happier. It is well made and I don't have to worry or be extra careful when riding challenging parts of the asphalt. Durability: so far so good!

Looks and fits great
The installation of this product is simple and straightforward. The finish on the black one is awesome. If you are going to wander off the pavement I highly recommend some protection. I have not tested this product in a crash but it is well constructed and should protect.

Well made and couldn't be easier to install!
Granted...my review of the durability and effectiveness is a bit premature as I installed it only a week ago, but this piece is SOLID. I have no doubt it will stop anything that may be thrown at it. I had my doubts about fitment, but once I bolted everything it up, it was fine. Just be sure to not tighten anything down until all the bolts are in. A couple minutes...tops. It took longer to go upstairs and get my allen wrenches than it did to install it.
I have the Termignoni full system installed on my '12 and it fit just fine as it said it should, so rest assured.
