I respect everyones opinion of course. I didn't say its a bad move to buy them. I said i wouldn't do it.

I own a cbr , love how it looks, but when i am on the track i dont put my bike behind the bars. I want to look sexy . If i fall (which i did twice) , then i pay the price. At least i have something that when i get in the garage , i fall in love with and looks harmonic in my eyes.

After all, you never know how someone may fall. Even a static fall, can cause a good damage no matter the protection. Have seen a caponord braking before my eyes with 20mph although it had crash bars. Rocks lay everywhere. Unfortunately .

I had OE Crash bars on my SMT; came off it on ice at low speed last winter, the crash bars worked. Also had R&G crash bungs on front and back wheel spindles they done their job also. Both worth their price I recon.

I think they are close to 300 Euros each side ! Together with tank cover and the rear side plastics it came to near 1300€.

AltRider are coming soon with crash bars for KTM 1190 ADV:
http://www.altrider.com/altrider-upp...ure-r/pid/1423

I have AltRider crash bars (and skid plate) and on my V-Strom 650, and they are top quality. Would surely buy from them again.
My guess is a price similar to BMW GS1200 crash bars - ~$450

Personally, I really like the Rumbux bars. I rode the bike for a month without bars and looks beautiful; But the real question for me is: "If I have an accident on the bike I don't really care if the plastic get scratched or got damage!. I really need to be able to keep driving" Off course having a big bars don't guaranty that but minimise the chances.
In terms of weight, Its an extra kilo. But if you take in the equation the bash plate, the weight is actually less.

There are several options. I am between two. OEM and SW-Motech.

I cant answer about the motech ones but, I did drop my bike in the mud on wednesday and to my surprise, it only hit the crash bar and handlebars.

So yes on a flat, muddy surface, they do protect the fairings, but I would like to add that if you had a rock or uneven surface a point would hit the fairing through the gap of the crashbars and handlebars.

Sounds good to me.
It looks that OEM finally is the way to go. Look better than the competitors, are a bit more pricy though and as you people do report, they seem to do their job.

The OEM crashbars.



And the SW-Motech




PS. Rumbux is not an option. I don't want my bike to look like being in jail.
Just had a pretty descent off on my 1190, basically overcooked a high speed off camber gravel corner - the OEM bars protected most of the front stuff - did have a slight graze on the petrol tank - looking at the Mototech bars and how the bike slid - I think that the OEM bars gave better protection than the Mototech ones would - me I'll be fitting the jail bars shortly....
