The refined lines of the new boxer engine were retained in the design of the best crash bars available. As a result, this beautiful motorcycle looks even better with our crashbars. Not only is the cylinder head protected but the engine case stabilised by truss construction with a "predetermined point of inflection". A fastening method specially adapted to the lightweight design of the R1200RT transmits forces into the frame and properly employs the structural elements of the engine case, without increasing the load on the engine screw threads. It would be a shame to protect the cylinder head covers at the expense of the engine housing. The cross connecting bar is heavily braced with additional supports that transmit forces into the main frame in the same manner.
They are made of 25mm stainless steel, a high quality, refined material that accentuates the quality of the R1200RT. The finish is bright stainless steel, but lightly textured by bead blast, then passivated. It is very easy to install. The bars are designed to be as narrow and compact as possible. Oil and filter can be changed without removing the crash bars.
Can be fitted with cylinder head guards (item no. 047-0160).
Does not fit with Remus (or possibly other aftermarket) header pipe.
