There are a number of aluminum aftermarket skid plates available, most priced well over $300. The Ricochet KTM 990 skid plate is equivalent in quality and finish an a lot less expensive. The plate nicely fits around the engine and does not look like an overdone piece of armory, yet it give the bike a nice rugged look.
The plate is plenty thick and strong to take a beating. It bolts to the bike in the center and back with provided brackets, which are a bit more difficult to align the first time but one those brackets are on you don't need to take them off to remove the plate. Solid support once mounted.
One minor issue may be that the front bracket obscures the screws for the battery compartment cover so you have to remove the bracket in order to get to the battery. Small price to pay for solid protection against abuse of rocks and gravel. Overall a great product and a great deal.
