The crash guard, also known as a engine guard or crash bar, is a sturdy metal frame that mounts onto the chassis of the Yamaha MT-15. Positioned strategically around the engine, it acts as a buffer between the ground and critical motorcycle components in the case of an accident, preventing or reducing damage.
Protection: The primary purpose of a crash guard is to protect the motorcycle’s engine and bodywork during a fall or crash. It absorbs impact energy and prevents direct contact with the ground.
Enhanced Safety for Rider: In addition to protecting the motorcycle, crash guards provide an added layer of safety for the rider. They can help prevent injuries by preventing the bike from directly pinning or crushing the rider in the event of a fall.
Aesthetic Appeal: Beyond their functional benefits, crash guards can also contribute to the overall aesthetics of the motorcycle, giving it a rugged and adventurous look.
