Hi everyone! I’m really in trouble between crashbars and axp skidplate.
On my previous KTM V2, I always use the oem crashbars: they looks great and works better, saving bike for low and high speed crash.
I bougth the Norden to have a lighter bike and, if possibly, I’ll like to avoid crashbar: axp skidplate shoud be a real alternative?
We all know that bars can cause damage if they get caught in protruding obstacles, but - as far as I understand - the axp plate has three fixing points on four which are the same as the crashbars (which actually have three on each side, and therefore can better dissipate the impact) and the resistance is entrusted to only two aluminum brackets with a single fixing point. It seems an elastic system rather than rigid, and it can have its value, but I think that my problem is falling from a standstill or at low speed, if I fall at high speed I think more about myself than about the bike ...
I can‘t decide. What do you think? how does axp works in the event of a fall ofa 230 kg motorbike with full fuel, not on a 100 kg motocross bike? Some has experience with a big bike?
