Crash bars, what do you guys like

Looking to add crash bars to the 2010 multi I picked up at the end of the summer trying to decide between SW-Motech, GIVI, or PUIG. I think i like the look of the SW-Motech the best but read something about them being heavy and I don't want to add more weight than i have to.

Also going to be install barkbusters if that changes anyone's thoughts.

So what do you all like and why?

Thanks

I have the OEM, but they are technically called engine guards. If I had to do it all over again, I would have gotten the Altriders crash bars.

I think I will purchasing the Altrider bars with the sliders and light brackets for the wife's new Multistrada. Gonna have them powder coated to match the red frame.

As the MTS1200-accident-experienced rider, I have some doubt about a crashbars. What is much matter for you - frame or plastic? Bar passes a force immediately to a frame. You can exchange plastic details, in some case even repair them. But if your frame have been screwed...

What about me, I decided to mount the Puig crashbars. As we say, "Two shells does never fall in one crater", and I now think that a big accident is not for me .
So, I decided to protect my bike only from falls on a stops. When MTS falls on left side while stopped (I have this experience too) it crushes a gearshift peg, makes scratches on two plastic details and maybe crushes hand protection. With crashbars it leaves little scratch on the bar. It is actually sensible.
Why Puig? It was been the best offer on ebay...

I have the T-Rex ones and really like them. Striking design.

I like the idea, just don't like the look... The bike is wide enough as it is!

I've got Motechs. I like 'em.
Not so much for the frame or the plastic but the rad.

I agonized over this very issue for weeks. I ordered the AltRider and love them. Fewest sharp bends to fail. Best welds ever. Pricey no doubt but not nearly as much as replacing plastic.

Ha-ha, I got my Puig bars, that is a kind of humor. Worst welding I ever seen. Moreover, in one bar I can hear the piece of metal that had stayed after welding. Rattle for baby ducatista, the main thing, not drop it in a craddle!
