Any Adventure or Trail rider will tell you it's not if you go down but when. For this reason Puig has designed their crash bars to provide excellent protection for not only the engine but also the fairings, gas tank, and radiator.
Looks great, functional, and at half the price of the competition!
I recently purchased a BMW F700GS to do some off-road riding (20% off-road, 80% street) and wanted to purchase some crash bars to protect the bike in case of a fall. I noticed there wasn't much information about all the different options. From what I could find, most crash bars ran in the $300 range and I didn't really like how they looked. They all, however, appeared to be functional in that they would protect the bike as they were designed to do. I decided to take a chance with these Puig bars and I'm glad I did. I think they are the best looking of the bunch and I think they will do a great job protecting the bike.
Installation: I like puzzles and the instructions for mounting these was definitely a puzzle. All of the information was there, but you have to do some measuring and comparisons to figure out which parts go where. Using the process of elimination and some common sense, it wasn't too bad to figure out. My only issue was with the bolt that connects the two bars together. It was a difficult reach and it didn't seem to thread properly no matter what I did. In the end, I was able to secure it nice and tight so all is well.
Finish: At first, I wasn't sure I'd like the powder coated finish since the rest of the bike frame/tubing was glossy black. After a while though, I've grown to love it. It plays off the matte finish of the black plastics and adds just enough contrast to the rest of the bike.
All in all, i'm very happy with them and think they are the best looking of the available options. The weight and thickness of the bars make them seem more than capable of protecting the bike.

Perfect fit on F700gs
Took about 20 minutes to install. All pre-drilled holes match fine. Appears to be strong and looks great on a bike.

Detlef S: The BMW factory product was way to costly for what it is. The Puig engine guard looks and works great. The installation was easy and for what it is and does the price is acceptable. I would recommend this product as a good purchase.Nov 11, 2014
Eugene K:Just an opinion - I think that the main reason for the difference in price is material. AltRider bars are made from stainless steel vs. Puig which is made from standard steel alloy. Being that it's paint protected and with proper maintenance I don't see an issue of Puig bars being rusted. I am planning to purchase Puig bars.Jan 24, 2015
Grant W:I would think it would fit just fine, just call Revzilla customer service and they can answer your question about fit. The guards are great!! and you can't beat the price for what you get. Hope this helpsOct 8, 2014
