    Engine bars....again
    « on: 2016-01-12 05:44:58 »
    For my fellow K16 riders across the pond.
    Does anyone have any experience with this European company or their products?

    It appears that they have a good looking product at an even better looking price.
    I have inquired to them directly and through eBay but they seem reluctant to respond.
    Any input is appreciated.

      First time I hear of them. While they claim to be headquartered in Germany, they sell their products worldwide through other dealers. In Germany they list only one dealership that sells their products.
      Based on their website, I think they buy parts in Taiwan/China and sell them through their channels or online. Doesn't have to be bad though. Who's first to test them?
      It doesn't have to make sense. It's ok if it's just fun :-)

         :-[I have bmw bars fitted to mine and saved my bike when I had to lay it down after a slow stall  :(
        and apart from a small scratch on the wing mirror that was it saved about £800 on parts
        do the maths

          Yep....I already know the benefits of engine bars.
          What I was asking is if anybody had specific experience with that company or had any experience with their bars.

                I don t know this brand but have mine bars from italian company isotta. I didn't have to use them until now  ;D but they seems to be good quality for reasonable price
