The standard skid plate is strong but some skid plates are heat treated for more strength, there is difference is style and shape some skid plates cover more and some cover less, but im sure u can get steel ones for even stronger and more effective strength but i dont see the need for them

I think buying a good skid plate with lots of coverage is a good idea and definitely the additional coverage will provide more protection for your frame and casings. Myself I have a polymer Hyde Racing skid plate and absolutely love it. It is super light, strong, and doesn't amplify engine noise like aluminum. The first ride after I installed it, it saved my bike as I hit a rockledge straight on in 4th gear pinned. I seriously doubt the stock skid plate would have survived and definitely my frame rails would have been dented.
