Nelson-Rigg UV-2000 Half Cover
Perfect for the Beast
I bought one last year for my Kawasaki Concours 14 to keep the South Carolina sun off while parked at work. It held up well and still in use so I needed one for my new KTM 1290 Super Duke R. I had read that a medium should work and it fits perfect. Revzilla got it to me quick as always. Used my 5 dollars in Rev cash.

Don't bother - Buyer beware
This is my second UV cover from Nelson-Rigg. The first one lasted nearly ten years of daily use before it finally wore out so I didn't hesitate to just order the exact same model for use on the same bike. When the new cover arrived I first noticed that it no longer had the additional layer of black material on the inside of the cover and felt much lighter weight. Sadly the new cover began to rip in less than a month. It's continued to shred and now needs replacement after less than a year of use. What a shame. Somewhere along the line NR went cheap and it shows in the product. Personally I'd gladly pay a bit more for quality.

Fits like a glove
I decided to buy this half cover so I could cover my bike during the day while I was at work from the sun and rain. I was really impressed how perfectly it fit. I have a full windscreen and a 45L case. I will say that the site elastic straps are kind of concerning. They seem really weak and like they'll fail after regular use. Overall, I like its fit and I like the it protects. I have included pictures so you can see for yourself. I have included pictures so you can see for yourself.

excellent first time purchase
I bought this for my 2015 BMW S1000RR. I believe I purchased the large, cant remember now. I have had no problems with it all summer. My bike is stored in a shed out of weather but I work 32 hr weekends and my bike sits out in the weather and sun on those weekends. I bought this to keep the sun from beating on it and keep the rain off it. So far its done that excellent. My bike sits out in a parking lot for 48 hours and no fading or uv ray dulling to the plastics and best of all...... heavy down pour rain and later the bike is dry. good investment, the material is holding up well so far for 90+ days and the fanny pack that holds it doubles as a lower seat support for me when I ride. Just turn it facing back and lean back on cruise control.

Barely lasted a year
I used this when I commuted to work, and overnight when it wasn't raining. It ripped when it snagged in my backpack once - didn't think much of it and repaired it with duct tape. A year later, it ripped 3 times over a span of a week, just from putting it on over my bike (near seams, and where it touched my bike, such as over the wind shield). From my experience, it does not stand up to frequent use. I guess it worked well and packed up nicely for the year it stayed together.

Great all around cover for Florida living!
I have to leave my bike outside in the constant Florida rain and sun. I was planning to use this just as a day cover during work, but it has actually worked really well for "storing" the bike outside for multiple days of rain and heat. For the first month the cover has held up really well. We will see how it looks in a year.
It is easy to put on and take off. Stays on in windy rain storms. Keeps the main part of the bike quite dry in rain. Folds very small. Comes with a nice bag.
I am very pleased with this cover. If it ever does wear out, I will most likely purchase another one.

I like using this cover for when I'm mobile. When parked at home, my bike gets a full canvas cover. I carry this on my bike for when I need cover away from home. It packs small and covers enough of the bike so I won't have a soaking wet/scorching hot seat.
