that is the trade off for reducing weight, just like the yami's and there cast wheels. You crash them and they explode. All the new bikes as they get lighter and faster explode on impact.

Granted I have not seen the pictures because of bandwidth, but this type of damage could happen to ANY bike involved in a head on. How fast were the bikes actually moving, & how much does the harley weigh? What part of the zuks frame is broke, & where did it hit the harley? There is a lot more involved here than just a cracked frame.

The write up said 35-40mph. That's a small Harley too.

the bike RIPPED at the neck. no other explanation other than a weak frame. the new 05 Gixxer and zx10 are becoming a staple for weak welds...

Gotta love mass production quality!

it's not weak welds it the material and amout that is being used! the frames are getting lighter and lighter so the bikes and get faster and faster! The welds are the same!
