The front headlight on the 1190R is very impressive. It is large, it is bright, and it has that LED perimeter lighting which looks cool. It also looks incredibly expensive and vulnerable with its position in front of the motorcycle facing all on coming objects and debris. It practically screams out for protection. Thankfully, the options for protecting it in the marketplace are many. Touratech and Altrider both make options for metal guards in silver or black. Evotech and Hepco Becker have options as well. In addition to metal grilles, there are clear lexan options. I opted for the Touratech solution. It has a well-engineered mounting solution, and it is easily removable for cleaning. For me the removable option is a big plus over other guards I have had. The one caveat is that it is easy prey for those in the know.
