Hello all, sorry to post this but i couldn't help myself not to. A guy just crushed his r25 and this is how it is looks like after crash.

When he had the crash he was going around 170 kmh (105 mph) lost the control and bumm. Luckly he is ok after 25 stitches and a broken bone. The point is this is a motorcyle doesn't run like the other low cc bikes and reach very high speeds but bike materials are not that good. PLEASE be carefull!!!

Materials are okay, not compareable with a high class bike but definately not bad. 170 km/h is very very fast, and the impact is demolishing. Every random bike would look like that with such an impact.

It maybe that the forks are meant to act like shearbolts so as not to damage the headstock,bit like the crumple zone built into the front of cars.Just a thought.

My top speed was 110km/h or 65mi/h, I'm ok with that. :) Good luck to the guy I hope he get fine soon. What doesn't kill us, make us learn a lot. Bike, we can buy another at any moment in our lives.

I'm in love with this bike, I'm riding it very slowly and carefully, always!

Faith in God, and move on...
