Oronero have recently finished the moulds for the rear swing arm protectors that fit the Ducati 748, 916, 996 and 998 models.

This item has been made using three layers of 200g carbon fibre followed by an inner layer of carbon/kevlar hybrid cloth. Particular attention has been given to the ‘shark fin’ area, which helps to prevent objects getting fed into the chain and rear sprocket. In this area the part has been reinforced with additional layers of carbon fibre and also carbon/kevlar cloth.

All of these layers are bonded with the appropriate epoxy under vacuum and heat, the result is both a strong and light component.
