Outback Motortek Upper Crash Bars For KTM 1090/1190**/1290

Rated 5/5 based on 1 reviews.

One of our upper crash bars’ biggest advantage is the non-floating design. To achieve this, we’ve developed a heavy-duty bracket to support the upper section of the crash bars, thus the structure is reinforced to avoid flexing and collapsing during impact

Upper Crash Bar Features:

  • Hand MIG welded– It’s all about the strength! We continue to follow our philosophy: toughness and functionality over appearance. Although our welders make those welds look like art.
  • 22mm steel tube with 2mm wall thickness – Matches the specs of the specs of the factory KTM crash bars
  • Less is often more – One of our goals was to preserve the low centre of gravity feature of the KTM 1090 Adventure by using the same tubing diameter as the KTM factory crash bars. Many other manufacturers use 25mm and even 27mm tubing to protect the upper part of your KTM but it adds up to 1-1.5kg extra, thus making it top heavier while not guaranteeing better impact absorption.
  • Tough mounting points – No cutting corners here (either)! Precision laser cut pieces for perfect fitment using 5mm thick metal mounts. These parts absorb a lot of impacts from crashes, rather than your bikes chassis that”s worth thousands of dollars/Euros.
  • Sandblasted to achieve the best possible adhesion of the coatings – it”s an extremely vital part of our manufacturing process. Sandblasted surfaces will withstand most surface scratches and give you a longer-lasting product.
  • Powder coated – combined with sandblasting it’s a killer combination to protect your product’s surface. No frills and tough just like your ADV/Dual Sport bike!

Compatibility **

Upper crash bars:
1090R/1290R: 2017/2018/2019 S model can work as long as it’s equipped with OEM lower crash bars.

Top Quality Kit

By: on 5 May 2020
Spent a bit of time looking at different brands of upper crash bars for my 1290R. Finally decided on these but was almost a little put off by the YouTube videos (as no instructions came with the package) saying that it's a 2 person job and the piece that goes under the steering dampener is a bit tricky. I didn't find this the case. From start to finish had it installed by myself in under an hour. Looks great and the issues of the earlier versions not being a perfect KTM orange match aren't present anymore. The only criticism would be that the bolts could be (visually) better quality (to mach the other visible bolts on the bike) and be slightly longer (when all tensioned down barely make it into the nyloc part of the nuts).
