I own one such R1S. However, the crumple zone on these vehicles (where the tow hook mounts) is a replaceable part, independent of the whole frame under the rig.In some cases “frame damage” can be something that’s easily repaired, but for some reason the insurance company will not allow it & insist on replacement. These become salvaged title vehicles that are repaired & used without issues. I know someone that got a great deal on a nearly new Porsche like this.
I can’t imagine this is going to go well on vehicles with large “gigacast” parts.
I may post photos of the design and fab of the front receiver we made for the r1s to haul a ‘rack n ride’ with EV dirtbike.
