Enterprises protective bars for the 2010 Concours
14 are now available. Kawasaki made some changes
to the bike to help dissipate engine heat and divert
it away from the rider. These changes resulted
in us having to re-engineer the engine/fairing
brackets. Additionally, Kawasaki requested a minor
design change which would allow the accommodation
of certain law enforcement equipment for use in
their highly anticipated return to the law enforcement arena.
These changes culminated in new generation engine/fairing
guards, stronger and a little larger than their predecessors – built
with 1” diameter tube instead of 7/8” diameter,
easier to install and still available in chrome or
tactical black powder coat. These new guards are
unique to the 2010 model and will not fit earlier
For production going forward, we’ve also upgraded
the small side bag guards to 1” diameter tube.
The full size saddlebag and tail guard option will continue
to be made with 7/8” diameter. Both of these
fit 2008 through 2010 model bikes.
We’ve expanded our accessory line-up for the
2010 model by offering a baton/flashlight holder
similar to the very popular version we build for
the Honda ST1300PA as well as a speaker bracket specifically
designed for the Whelen model SA315P speaker, the
same unit being utilized by law enforcement agencies nationwide.
The Concours 14 being offered as a law enforcement vehicle
is fully supported by Kawasaki Motors Corporation, U.S.A.

MC Enterprises is expanding its presence in the police bike aftermarket by introducing its new line-up of protective bars for Kawasaki’s new Concours 14.
In doing so, we followed the tried and true design characteristics that we engineered into our original product developed for the Honda ST1100 in 2003, followed by our highly successful line of protective bars for the Honda ST1300PA, which we introduced in 2005.
not specifically designed as a police bike, the
Concours is similar in performance and appearance
to the Honda and carries some of the same type
of factory-installed equipment such as an adjustable
windshield and available ABS brakes.
believe this bike is capable of sharing the market
with the Honda and providing another more affordable,
high quality, lower maintenance alternative to
Harley and BMW.
Following what occurred with the Honda, we’re confident
that other aftermarket manufacturers, dealers and
outfitters will develop the remaining components
necessary to complete the various configurations
of lights, sirens, radar guns, etc. that law enforcement
is MC Enterprises’ intention to eventually identify
a few “standard” configurations of accessories for
both the Honda and Kawasaki, then manufacture the
bracketry to accommodate same, providing a more seamless
product and making it easier on those preparing RFP’s/RFQ’s
as well as those assembling the final product.
shown in the images below, the Concours bars are
very similar in design to those for the Honda. One
notable distinction is their ease of installation,
eliminating more than 20 steps from the process required
for the Honda, including modification of the fairings.

side bag guards are a lower cost
alternative to our full size bag
guard and tail guard assembly and
provide a little less protection
but offer a universal mounting point
on each side of the bike for a variety
of accessories commonly used in law
enforcement. The accessory mounting
plates have no pre-drilled holes
allowing the end user the freedom
to utilize the space as desired.
