From the looks of the picture, it looks like the bike deflected off the rock by hitting the bar. If the bar was not there it might have hit the side cover, removing it from the bike and maybe parts that are underneath the cover .

so even though some damage was caused, I bet it would have been far worse without the crash bars.
