Late model GSXR's, Kawis and Yamahas don't crash real well. The new "extrusion casting" technology is cheap and makes light parts but they break too easily IMO.
Wasn't there an issue with the frames cracking on the gixxer under race conditions right on the weld seam? Speedy recovery.

On the inside portion but the outside from the bottom to 3/4 of way up looks pretty straight up the weld. That's just looking at the picture.
