Clubman bars would have more drop, very similar to clip-one. I think the bars in that photo have been rotated forward.

I ran Route 66 tyres on my 883R. I usually had Night Dragons but there were none in my size at the time. A little harder & longer lasting than Night Dragos but still a good all year round tyre, especially in the wet. Harder riders than myself may prefer Night Dragons

Yeah, I was wondering if they are clubman bars rotated forward I love the look and was thinking of ordering one but am not sure if that’s what it actually is.

Never ran Pirellis... mostly Dunlop... The bars in the picture look like two piece clubman's with replaceable ends and they look to be rotated up for less drop as Paul says.

Rassk, Tomaselli, Jota, and Rizoma used to make such things...

The welded clubman bars tended to snap off easily so I went to fliping flat track bars over and cutting them down to width.... then finally to Vortex Clipons with replaceable bars that had plastic buttons and protected the throttle and levers better in a crash situation... in the early days crashing was a given...

I just picked up a set of T32 Bridgestone's for my daily driver 120/70ZR-18 front and 140/80ZR-18 rear... a move away from the Dunlop Trailmax Missions in 18". Prior to that it was Bates Baja's in standard sportster 16/19" sizes
