Any design that connects with the front like this is on the good side of makers, though it can interfere with triple clamps lifts.
It resembles the hepco becker ones I own, so +1 there. It's high and protects the side better.
But it's almost a lie to say this design is unique. It's distinct just enough to avoid patent disputes I guess.
The mount points on the side are not thought for other lower protections (engine guard or skid plate) nor highway pegs, especially not other brands we already know. The slider is too high for acting as a peg.
The "no weld" argument is rather weak. Wouldn't you prefer a good weld to a possibly bad cast, or even bolts assembly?
The turn signal protection argument is not a selling point. The bike is top heavy (at least when full) and when you tip over, the whole tank is still unprotected. Turn signal <100$; tank > $$$!
From those visuals, I would evaluate it right below hepco becker. But certainly well above the givi/swmotech useless-joke ones.
Since we haven't heard from the t-rex ones since their initial offer, I guess t-rex is too clumsy or defective or heavy, who knows. T-rex ones would be probably below these zana, imho.
If only owners would participate more on the forums and send lots of closeup pictures...
FYI, if anyone wants closeup pictures from hepco beckers ones, see https://www.kawasakiversys.com/forum...ml#post1220857
