    So after 10 posts you have your answer: the absolute best crash bars bars are HepcoandBecker/GiviKappa/SW-Motech/TCI bars. Or take your pick.

    Givi for me. Very robust and non intrusive. The mounting points are solid.

    I have the SW Motech also they were tested on the WABDR and on my trip afterwards, and I believe it was the reason I still rode my bike home, the bar that connects the two halfs together really adds support.

    Does anyone have crash bars AND the Honda light bar mounted on their NC? Any problems? Are some crash bars incompatible with the Honda light bar?

    Sw-Motech works with the Honda light bar.

    Isn't there a thread on some crash bars that screw into the engine case? That would defeat the purpose if it cracked the case. I haven't seen any up close so don't know how they attach.
    It seems I remember something about that. I may have to do a search - leaving work right now....so later

    I was wrong but this post by Beemerphile is worth repeating for those that may be interested in the mind of the "gone one".

    I'm using R&G sliders for the NC700x, very expensive but look really nice.

    Question Best choice for engine guards

    There are quite a few options out there for engine guards at this point. I'm aware of Givi, SW-Motech, Puig, Kijima, Mmoto, Fehling, and Hepco & Becker at least. My question is what's best and why? I've read a number of threads on this subject, but still haven't reached a conclusion.

    I've got a 2015 NC700X DCT, and I would like to add highway pegs at some point.

    All recommendations, thoughts, and pertinent information is welcome. Thank you.
    I ride a black 2015 Honda NC700X DCT, and I love it.
