We had something like that already, the twin pegs and i've seen some footpegs that looked like floorboards 90dg rotated.
Sorry Neil (and Duncman as another farkle fetishist), i swallowed as much of negativity towards the bold on stuff as i could but with this item the limit has reached.
The other items i tried to give my opinion and why that is my opinion but at this point a start to worry about where we as the human species end up.

a little early for an April Fools joke....an answer to a question no one was asking...yikes those are massive....hmmm, let's see: reduced ground/obstacle clearance, additional weight, bulky, ugly, don't look mud friendly, likely expensive...all in the name of perceived comfort...hard pass...will stay with my pivot pegz that provide simple, functional ankle rotation that benefit interface with foot controls & energy absorption.

449 USD special price for GasGas/KTM...regular price is 499.

I agree with you ALL. except I have to say “ very interesting engineering “

I am an old guy that has had knee surgeries- I stand all the time, and I don’t see the need, yet.

Too many moving parts for something as simple as footpegs! 

Definitely not something you want breaking down out on a trail.

 

Can't see the point either considering how much it actually moves, might reduce some jarring & shock transfers, but 😨

That seems to be the point of them. reduce vibration for "Comfort"., but REALLY reduce vibration and shocks to the foot.
