I have ordered some small mirrors from a company in Germany, cost £145 !!,they should look good I hope, as they are smaller and more minimal than than the OE ones.

They arrived from Germany and they are on the bike, they are very nice all metal and machined alloy, very slim stalks and lots of articulation and smaller mirrors, all in all much more minimalist than the big plastic OE ones, expensive but look the dogs!!.

speaking with my local dealer the other day about the lack of a decent bar end mirror for the Super Duke in the UK, & he mentioned that KTM have released them as an accessory for the 790 Superduke & they will be available very soon.

As it turned out the mirrors are a load of crap a few minutes into a ride they start to move about, and you are forever adjusting them, and yes I tightened them up with a spanner and they moved, even after a dab of araldite, Still no good, so I have taken them off bloody
Things ,tried without mirrors but was crap ,you just don't realise how much you rely on your mirrors when you don't have them, been out with the OE mirrors back on oooh the joy of being able to see behind and also mirrors that don't move as soon as you get rolling, ah bliss.

CRG Arrow. These are fault less. Look good, loads of visibility, rock solid. Ok one fault, not cheap but that’s cos of the above. Buy cheap, buy twice.

Totally agree. CRG mirrors are by far the best side mirrors ever made for SDR.
