    great product


    The crash bars did their job well. The very next day after installation I hit a speed bump and forgot what gear I was in, stalling and dropping the bike, no damage and I went on my way.

    Great accessory


    I wanted something to protect my 2011 Versys that looks good too. SW-Motech’s crash bars are perfect.
    And now I have a place to mount my highway pegs. Although I would like to see SW-Motech come up with their own hardware for adding pegs/accessories. I had to do some searching for the right parts or was going to have to make it myself. Luckily I found another mfg (Bike Master) who makes 7/8 bar clamps (with accessory mount) that worked nicely with a slight modification. I used my passenger foot pegs, welded up my own brackets so the pegs use their own mechanism to lock in the in or out position. These work great. Now just need SW-Motech to mfg these.
    Later when I can afford my driving lights, these bars will provide an excellent location for mounting the lights.

    Excellent fit, super easy to install!


    I did a few searches online to see what folks were mounting on the Versys 650, these bars seemed to give the best coverage for the engine as well as the upper plastics. I like that they match the Versys’ frame lines and give you more placement options for bolt-on accesories like auxiliary lights.

    They were very easy to install, and all the parts have a perfect fit. The only thing I’d improve on is the U-bolt clamps, which are your simple hardware store parts and look it…..but the Versys is so rare that this lowers the cost for the whole kit.

    I didn’t notice any more vibration than before I mounted them, an issue some have reported. My bike is a second gen, so it may have been an issue with the first gen only?

    All in all, I know that if/when the Versys ever goes down….it will be well protected, and the peice of mind it well worth it.

    Great job, SW-Motech!

    Oh, and a note about purchase/shipping…..there was only one place to get these from in Canada, but that is no issue as Twisted Throttle has a decent price, fast shipping and great sales staff!
