Forks typically donít break on impact, they bend.

Itís all speculation from us Interwebs folk, but I was an insurance adjuster handling motorcycle claims for the largest insurer of motorcycles in the US, ASE certified in damage analysis, blah, blah, and my experience has been that if this damage is from an impact the forks will have an obvious bend/bow in them.

There arenít enough detailed photos for me to make a determination/conclusion. Based on what the OP contends, and if there isnít a bend in the forks to make me think otherwise, (if I were still an adjuster) Iíd have a forensic engineer/lab looking at those forks.
