Oxford Aquatex Bike Cover
Customer Product Reviews
Great oxford product
First class service as always from sports bike, Bought xl with box for a gsx1250fa Cover is pretty thin, as you'd expect from a light weight cover, great for folding up and keeping in the top box or panniers, might even fit under a spacious seat, hole for chain in front is a bonus, elastic round bottom works well, good strong strap, great fit, and does the job with ease, don't fit it till exhaust is cool or you will melt it, recommended
Perfect cover for covered use
My motorcycle is parked outdoors but in a covered location so this cover fits the bill perfectly! I would not want to use this cover if my bike was parked on the road or on a drive way. You need the Oxford Stormex for that! Great little cover - makes a good touring/travel cover too.
Typical British weather means that this cover has already been through the mill despite only getting it a couple of weeks ago. It's doing an excellent job of protecting my Suzuki VanVan from the wind and rain and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it! I don't think it will be a forever solution but at the affordable price I don't mind purchasing another when/if this one breaks.
Great Budget Cover
Excellent value for money, it provides decent protection from the elements while remaining small and lightweight enough to carry in a rucksack - reinforced loops near the front wheel to thread a lock through are a neat touch. I'd consider something heavier and more robust if I was planning to park out on the roadside for long periods, but this suits my needs perfectly.
Oxford Aquatex Medium
I own a HONDA HORNET 600cc from 2007, that cover fits a bit loose in this bike, but I was suspicious that the small size wouldn't fit (just for a couple of cm). It is a bit large for this model. However, so far so good and the quality seems alright. It hasn't rained yet so I cannot say
Does the job
It's a cover and it covers the bike ok. Not much to add really, it's not very thick but wasn't very expensive either. It's fine for keeping the showers off at the moment, but I won't be wintering the bike under it. Simple strap under the bike keeps it from disappearing and there are holes for a lock. Effective and good value I suggest.
Perfect if expectations are right
This product is fantastic value for money if your expectations are in the right place. For me this is a perfect cover to keep the dust off in the garage and to chuck over if caught in a pinch whilst out on the go. I wouldn't make this my cover of choice however if I was using it for street parking every night whilst exposed to the elements during the colder months. For that I would say it's a bit thin and you may want something more robust. Lastly, for any other XSR700 owners out there…a medium will fit perfectly.
I needed a cover to keep the dust off in my garage. This cover does this, I ordered medium for my gsx 650f it fits really well. It could do with some marks to show the mirror bits. I also wouldn't put it on over hot exhaust. I'm sure this cover would keep a bike dry outside. It Comes with a belly strap which you can use if it's windy. Very good product.
Heat resistant but rather flimsy
The main reason I purchased this cover (instead of other Oxford covers) was that this is heat resistant so I won't have to worry about the exhaust pipe burning a hole through the cover. The cover itself has holes where the lock could go through but it looks a bit flimsy and would probably tear through within a year or two.
