Just a small break

Anyone ever snap a set of renthal bars like this. No bend, just snapped. Happened on my friends Ktm 690 r. Don't know the full story, just that the bike flipped 360 degrees in the air and landed on the bar end. Nothing else was damaged on the bike.

I would have thought they would have bent before breaking. Also odd, we cant find the point of impact on the bike. Just broke bars no damage anywhere else what so ever.

Depends on the metallurgy and heat treatment. After treatment some materials are too brittle to bend and will break. Its referred to as toughness. Had the impact happened at a slower rate, the material may have been able to deform rather than break. Its highly likely that there was a flaw present
