Bike crashed on purpose!

Crash test dummy Chris Northover crashing a FireBlade on purpose!
Crash protection manufacturer R&G were so confident in how their parts perform in a crash they asked a SuperBike magazine journalist to crash a bike on purpose.

The 2001 Honda FireBlade was kitted up with engine case covers, bar-end sliders, exhaust protectors and fork protectors and crashed by SuperBike’s Chris Northover. The kit worked so well the bike could be ridden afterwards.

Richard Taylor, R&G Managing Director, said: “We’ve had 13 years of people crash testing our products and telling us how great they work, but capturing that on camera so that we can show other people exactly this has proved hard, unless we did it on purpose. So we invited SuperBike to do exactly that.”
