Altrider crash bars for BMW S1000XR from £404
American company Altrider’s bars give a more rugged look to BMW’S adventure-alike 1000cc fourcylinder machine. They also help protect vulnerable bits if the bike should take a tumble. The two sides are joined with a central connector, which is designed to spread the impact forces evenly across the two sides of the bike rather than focusing it in one area. On this model the bars are actually connected in two places, to help spread the impact load over an even wider area. The stainless steel bars are available in either silver or black and Altrider say they won’t hinder ground clearance for cornering.
