800GS? come with hand guards?

as the title says does the 800GS come with hand guards as stock?

I am hiring one for 3 weeks in Europe in Sept and what to know if they have them. Not for drop protection so much but for weather protection.

if not, is there a cheap aftermarket pair around? can be totally plastic as I only what it for weather protection

In the US, at least where I shop, handguards are optional equipment

Hand guards are an "add on" here in Canada. Not sure about other countries. Check with the rental firm to see if they offer them and or look on Ebay for used.
