Constructed of heavy-duty mild steel, SW-MOTECH crashbars are designed to provide maximum protection, optical integration, and high-quality fit and finish.
Provides protection to both the fairing and engine without interfering with oil changes or removal of cylinder head covers for valve adjustments.
All components are protected against corrosion by sandblasting and powdercoating.
The black powdercoated finish has a gloss clear topcoat, providing an additional layer of rust protection and beautifying your ride!
High-strength frame mounting points and 26.9mm diameter mild steel tubing provide heavy duty protection.
Same as the SW-MOTECH crashbars made for Wudo Germany (just a different brand sticker).
- Will not fit the '15 Water-cooled R1200R
- Not for use with Remus Revolution exhausts.
Last July, I had a "parking lot" accident - I was cut off at a local university by a speeding cyclist, (pedal powered) and my machine went down. I tried to keep it up, with my right hand, and the throttle opened in first gear. The machine launched, without me, and came down sans instrument panel, brake reservoir, LH mirror, the handlebars into the gas tank. Get this: I had SW Motech crash bars on, and they were badly crushed and scrapped ON BOTH sides of the bike, but besides a scrapped magnesium head, no damage to the engine! The total crash bill:
$6,000+. Without my "mo-techs" (cost: ~two hundred bucks) the machine would have been a total loss.
I cannot recommend these strongly enough. The best thing(s) are:
1. They look great - black steel tubing, just like your frame.
2. You can rest your feet on them while cruising to "stretch your legs"
Attached is a link to "Twisted Throttle" - I have now ordered two sets (original and replacement) and I enthusiastically recommend both.

These are SOLID bars, high quality build.
They are also great to rest your feet on during long trips.
I just bought my second R1200R yesterday, and these crashbars will be the very first addition.
I highly recommend them. (Posted on 7/7/14)
