Fitted these today and I'm very happy with them, build quality seems good, easy to fit and I think they look good, better than others on the( limited) market

Look good  :152:
Are these the same as SW Motech ones? I’m considering some for mine and SW appeared to be the only ones available

I had a set of HEED bars on my Transalp for approx 8 years, solid bars and lasted well till I sold it and moved to my Crossrunner last year.

I have seen these on an older transalp. The pics on the CR look like they sit quite close to bodywork.
I have the GIVI bars fitted. Very solid and look great and sit a bit wider and cover more area and so offer far more protection in my opinion. They are GIVI TN1139

Protecting the radiator in a minor spill may make the difference between riding it home or waiting for a breakdown service.
