Outback Motortek has quickly moved up the ranks to the top podium spot in the KTM & Husqvarna Protection World. From robust crash bars to skid plates that intimidate boulders, Outback Motortek's philosophy stems from quality over quantity. Each piece is painstakingly designed and manufactured by hand and held to stricter quality control than any of it's competitors.
Outback Motortek manufactures the strongest Husqvarna 701 Crash Bars available. Utilizing a simple yet incredibly strong design concept, Outback Motortek understands that "It's not if you go down, it's when!" Go ahead call your Husqvarna dealer and have them price out a radiator, engine cases, plastic & possibly fork tubes and compare that total to what a set of crash bars cost you. You'll quickly discover the value of a set of crash bars. Outback designed their bars with a simplistic ideology that keeps their design simple, lightweight and strong. Keep the bars as close to the mounting points for strength, minimize the design to keep it lightweight & finish things off with industry-leading quality control. Each set of bars is then sandblasted & powder coated for incredible durability and factory finish looks.
Outta-the-box I noticed the color, finish, and 21mm tubing was perfect for the 701's chassis. The installation was easy and everything fit properly. While the addition of the heavy-duty upper mounting bracket took a little extra time, it was worth it, in the end, giving the crash bars a very solid feel. Crash tested- it’s hard to write a review for a set of crash bars without actually crashing. With a few low-speed crashes and rocky tip-overs, I can assure you they do a great job of protecting your bike. The crash bars have a few scrapes and scratches now, but no real damage. The alignment is still true and I attribute that to the addition of the heavy-duty mounting bracket. Outback Motortek has done their homework by providing us with some good looking and functional protection.
