So after a million posts in the Super Ténéré thread here is the skid plates list.
After all the discussions I think we can list them for its principal characteristics: ground clearance, mounting type, weigh and aluminium thickness. Feel free to ad any more specs you think or if I forgot any other skid plates.
Please help to correct and fill all the specs so we can have a full list.
