Default Are fly by wire bars different?

Does anyone know for sure if a pair of MY 2020 fly by wire Sportster bars will fit an older cable operated twist grip bike?

FBW handlebars are different, the throttle side is shorter
and notched for the throttle mechanism.
You could make a plug to make them work on a older bike.
Maybe they already make one.

Yup they do.

But 2020 MY Sportsters aren't fly by wire (nor are any other years).

What I meant was could I use the new type of throttle cableless bars on my Sportster.
I was offered a set mini apes I might run for a while.
