TESTIMONIAL: GSX-R600 Lowside Crash at Brands Hatch

IMG_0820R&G customer, Matt, had a lowside crash while attending a track day at Brands Hatch earlier this year.

Matt said: I recently put one of your R&G Crash Protectors to the test recently at Brands Hatch!  I had a pretty unfortunate cold day/cold road tyre scenario which resulted in a 60mph low side.  

“Amazingly the bike was pretty much OK, aside from a slightly bent brake pedal, minor scrape to the base of the exhaust, and minor scuff to the fairing.  All very fixable and the main point was that I was able to ride home with no issues.”

Have a look at what happened in Matt’s video here and scroll below to see how the R&G products prevented significant damage to his beloved Suzuki GSX-R600.
