I myself decided on the T-Rex crash and luggage guards and they seem pretty decent.

Hi friends,

the founder of Zana himself owns a Versys650, and has supplied this crash-guard to many of bike owners in India, and most seem to be quite happy. Though I havn't personally installed it yet, I have seen it on many V650 owners. There are not many options of crash guards, some like H&B/Givi/SWM etc are on the high price range, whereas Zana one is pretty reasonably priced. I will convey this thread to this gentleman, and if he could provide some inputs, or participate on this thread.
Btw, he is in process of finalizing a bash plate for V650, which many are eagerly waiting.

regards,
Pranav

They do ship internationally but was hoping someone had some experience with them.

Dear Jazzbone,

I have fitted this set to my Aug 2019 V650 Gen 3.

Excellent quality of manufacture in all terms - metal material, tube bending, welds, anodizing etc. The kit includes stainless steel bolts and silicone washers. One extra set of bolts is also included.

The bars also have an rubber coated extension on the lower part to act as a buffer if the bike drops - no metal or frame touches the road (I have tested this with the help of two burly neighbours to get the bike up again), only the rubberised extension.

Caveat: the kit cots Rs 9000/- or $ 125 or so. It CANNOT be compared to similar kit from SW Mototech or other premium makers. But, I really don't think that I require anything pricier or more glamorous after Zana.

The bars fit perfectly and have the huge advantage of offering mounting points for aux lights, horns etc.

I'll put a special crash bar oriented pic here later when I get home from work. Till then, do see these two.

I run T-Rex Racing engine guards and other products on both of my VerSys '17 & '19. I love their products, excellent design and quality!

I was planing on buying a KTM Duke for a track bike and for city traffic in the Philippines. I really liked the Zana engine guards for the KTM Duke, as they protected the engine and radiator the best.
