Blacked out parts and paintwork, skulls and cowls have all been past motorcycle looks that have cruised onto bikes around the world. Kuryakyn see the mesh-look as the next style bikers will sport in 2017 as part of the largest and unprecedented product launch in its 28-year history.
Being called Kuryakyn’s most comprehensive product line to-date, the all-new “Mesh” collection is loaded with more than 50 direct-replacement components for Harley-Davidson’s Dyna, Softail, Sportster and Touring models. The entire product line incorporates multi-piece construction throughout. Most parts utilize a three-piece design integrating chrome or satin black aluminum outer frames with a satin black aluminum baseplate that’s exposed through satin black or chrome stainless steel mesh panels.
The construction method and resulting look is unlike anything available the company claims, and unlike anything Kuryakyn has ever developed.
“We worked to really dial in the Mesh design to be a hybrid of mechanical and industrial aesthetics,” said Kuryakyn Director of Product Management Matt Leisch. “This is one of the largest product collections we’ve ever rolled out. The rugged style combined with ease of installation and customization will appeal to not only core Kuryakyn customers, but also the emerging group of riders and builders who want that raw, edgy look for their bikes.”
Visible socket-head cap screws add a rugged, mechanical appearance and securely fasten the components in place. The multi-piece designs easily disassemble for unlimited custom finish options by end users, as the baseplates, stainless steel mesh panels and frames can be all be painted or coated to match any color theme.
Included in the collection are bolt-on derby, timing and master cylinder covers for XL, Twin Cam and Milwaukee-Eight platforms, as well as caliper covers for FX and FL models. Mesh dash inserts, fuel doors, saddlebag hinge covers and fairing vent accents are a handful of highlighted offerings for bagger models.
Multi-fit components include Mesh gas caps and L.E.D. fuel and battery voltage gauges available for tanks equipped with screw-in caps and/or illuminated fuel gauges. Rounding out the multi-fit accessories are replacement bezels for bullet and flat-style turn signals.
