Stock tail with mud guard

I didn't realize this until I got the bike home from dealer, but it came with a kind of mud guard bolted under the tail. I've never seen this in pictures of the bike before. I quite like it, and honestly makes me think I don't need tail tidy.

Anyone else got that? Or is it just my dealer that added it?
I have to ask at next service.

Might be worth checking if Pyramid or someone else makes an extension for that.

I see now some new forum members got that on their bikes as well, so it's definitely stock from manufacturer now.

@Chic I'm not surprised to hear that tbh. I've been to moto meet Schwabish Gmund couple weeks ago. So many 790's... And most had nearly all power parts, including the orange bolts, caps and whatever other non-essential mods. Mine was the only one without original power parts bar-end mirrors ...even though you can get exact same ones, just without the logo, at Louis for 1/3 the price.

This is a good option. Better than the R&G one I recon.

anyone how much weight is saved with a tail tidy? is it even worth it besides the looks? I'm seeing now that some of the aftermarket ones place the right indicator light in a position where it gets melted by the exhaust heat...

Just need to make sure the blinker isout of the exhaust firing line, I think the chap who melted his on here was using a homemade jobby, although I could be wrong. I've got the R&G - no issues with either stock or akra.

Observation is the greatest source of wisdom.
