Aside from them never rusting, I cant think of anything that would make them out perform any other bar end. I just looked at your album and the bike looks stunning, really impressive.

thanks,

well they say that they are supposed to weigh twice as much and therefore dampen vibration more, for $70

the heavier that they are that would follow suit and make sense. I havent even seen these things, where are they available?

I have the ones from Motovation on my 910S and they definitely work for me.

IMO, they're mostly cosmetic. I've had them on other bikes and they give a more finished look. On the 910R, the bar ends are titanium so I wouldn't switch mine.

sorry that i don't have pics. but from the information on mv agusta's web site as well as from bike specs literature, they are titanium. they are not glossy but very subdued in appearance but very much in character with the stealth, black appearance of the bike. if you're looking for a shiny appearance then stainless steel may be the way to go.

The have a "titaniun treatment", whatever the hell that means. The triple trees get this same treatment, i think its just cosmetic as titanium is extremely light and would not make sense to use as a dampening material.

I would love to switch up to a heavier bar end, but I dont know how to mount my little crg dental mirrors if I do.

actually titanium is not "extremely light" and identical part in titanium would weigh more than aluminum....
however.... You think anyone would buy titanium bar ends?? I might just make some.
