Has been around since late 2016 and at RM 400 (USD100+) seems a fair price if you can afford one.

I used one and took it off as the linkage broke on a tour..

As Fastoman hinted, there is a whole lotta shaking down there.
I do ~50% offroad and I stress-cracked the current fender holding bracket, which is under seat (weight isolated via suspension!).
So, I must warn, I can't imagine going offroad with this, (and if not offroading, current fender works well).
My 2 cents.

In case you missed them, I think I found your keys.
