NewBonneville low cafe bar vs. Superbars
For various reasons I need to replace my stock T100 handlebars with something that puts my riding position a little forward and bent over. I had narrowed my choice down to the NewBonneville Low Cafe Bars. However, when I went to order them today I noticed the Superbar. The measurements that are important to me, rise & pullback, are similar:
Low Cafe Bar measurements:
Searching through the archives I can't find anything really comparing the two. I did find one post that mentioned that on the Superbars the throttle tube will have an over hang of just under an inch, the solution is to live with it or trim the throttle tube. One other person thought the Superbars were too wide. Well on the face of it the Low Cafe bars are wider, though another poster said they cut them down to match the stock handle bar width at 28.5". I guess with the center width smaller on the Cafe Low bars and the overall bar being wider, that would allow you to trim some off the bar without worrying about mounting your controls.
Does anyone have any experience with the two, either personal or interested observer. I have to say I do like the price of the Superbars, especially after shipping costs and converting U.S. $ to Canadian. I also want as little buyers remorse as possible. As usual, all comments and help are appreciated.
