Maximum wind and rain protection for Kawasaki Versys! Storm handguards have an aerodynamic design and a larger profile that wraps around the hands to offer excellent wind and weather protection. The wide profile is great for street riding and open trails. Storm Full-Wrap Backbone with two mounting points, this is the strongest backbone available, and is recommended for dual-sport and adventure touring bikes.
Barkbusters Storm Handguards have an aerodynamic design and a larger profile that wraps around the hands to provide maximum protection from the elements.
Barkbusters handguards were first manufactured in 1984 and now have over 28 years of motorcycle industry experience and riding enthusiasm. That history means Barkbusters has what it takes to produce the finest handguards available on the market today. In the unlikely event that you break a part of the handguard, every piece is replaceable.
Was worried about fit having had to bend barkbusters in the past to fit different dirt bikes, but these simply bolted on, no bending massaging required. Fit is excellent and they feel strong, like barkbusters should. The Storm shields do a nice job of keeping the elements off your hands. Overall, just a awesome product.

Terrific product - High quality, easy to install, huge improvement to the bike
Love these Barkbuster Storms! Took about 30 minutes to assemble and install them. The protection from wind, rain and whatever random road debris may seek to smack your knuckles is excellent. Also will protect in a crash. All around worth every penny. Makes my new Versys look the part of an adventure touring machine.

blocks wind and rain well. I can use my heavy duty race gloves instead of winter gloves in colder weather now. Just wish they had crashguards/sliders that could fit on this model

Love the hand guards
Barkbuster Stormp hand guards look very cool, they were easy to install. I bought them for weather protection. They were tested out on a 1300 mi ride to Colorado. It was cold and wet. I'm sure glad I had the Barkbusters installed. They are a quality product, I highly recommend them I'm a happy camper. Revzilla are great people to do business with.

Buy for Weather, not Temperature
These work great for rain, snow, and some wind. However, I bought them to avoid purchasing heated gloves or grips, and they did not do the trip. With my heavy gloves in sub 20 degree f temperatures! my hands were just a little colder than without them.
Great for bark busting uses too. Also, the cheapest way to buy them. Get this set, because separately they cost a lot more.

Daniel J: It looks like it gives you good protection from the weather, rain, and cold weather riding. I have not received the product yet, so I can't comment, on the hard guards themselvesFeb 21, 2014
KRISTOPHER D asked:Is this really everything I need to add handgaurds to my 2011 Versys? I recently bought a "complete kit" on another (more general) site which consisted of just the plastic parts.Nov 17, 2014
Yes, the Barkbuster Storm handguard kit has everything you need for installation including handlebar end weights. I have a 2014 Versys so your '11 model should be the same. You will need to play a bit with the adjustable pieces for the handlebar support, but they will fit. As final proof I "tested" them during a spill at 40 mph with no damage to my hand. The heavy-duty aluminum support bracket held up perfectly. The plastic guards do sell separately as a pair if needed.Nov 17, 2014
