Motorcycle Highway Bars
Motorcycle highway bars are accessories that have some controversy attached to them. Studies show both sides of the coin when it comes to the safety of highway bars in accidents. Some studies show that yes, they do provide ankle and foot protection while others show that no such protection exist. So, it depends on what you think and what you consider would be a good investment. I can tell you that they do offer protection for the side of your motorcycle in case you drop it.
There are many types of motorcycle highway bars to chose from with many vendors that sell all types of them but I will concentrate my efforts on the Indian Motorcycle Chrome front highway bars for the scout sixty. The front highway bars that Indian sells for the scout sixty is a beautiful piece of accessory that fits on the bike. It fits well with the motorcycle and adds protection to the side of the bike in low speed tip-overs. It is made of steel and is soon to be available in black.
As you can see both of these motorcycle highway bars are awesome and made strong. The quality is top-notch and the fit will be precise because it is made by Indian motorcycle for the scout sixty or scout. Although the black is not currently available through Indian Motorcycle but expected to begin selling in April 2018. I prefer the chrome for my Scout Sixty because of the white color of my bike and It will look good on it.
- Made from Steel
- Ease of installation is medium
- Color is chrome
- Does not work with extended reach
- A set of Infinite highway pegs (Here for $299.99) added to increase drive comfort on long rides
- A 1-year warranty from date of purchase
- Protect side of bike and engine
- Item# 2881756-156
So, as a side note and upon further reading the chrome will not work with the extended reach which is what my bike has. I will not have to wait until April 2018 to buy a black one instead of a chrome one because you can purchase it today. I kinda liked the chrome a better but the black is kinda sharp and would run well with the white color of the bike. So, if you have a scout sixty with extended reach then you will have to go through Amazon and rest assured these are worth it so buy a pair, you will be happy that you made the purchase.
