new speedy handle bars

i just got back from the barber meet in ala. if you love bikes ans ain't been there yet, put it on your bucket list! i sat on a new speedy there and triumph must have gotten the message the message because the new speedy on display had a different set of handle bars. i only sat on the bike but these bars felt much more comfortable than those miserable beach bars that came on my 2018.
i don't know how comfortable they are on an all day ride, but sure felt like an improvement. now, about that seat.....

Put Harley Sportster western bars on mine - were sitting in my garage for 2 years - got them for my daughter's Sporty, but then I led her to her new Bobber and she sold the Sporty. So glad she did in every way.

The Harley western bars are perfect, very comfy, love them - think they cost me $70 new.....all this is posted elsewhere.....

What style were they? Triumph had a low flat style option for the speedy

s m handlebars

sorry i didn't get a photo of the handlebars at barber, didn't think about it. they are probably an option of some sort. quite a while back i put the original bars from my 05 road king on my sm and am fairly satisfied with them. i posted photos on a thread under my name. those beach bars really cramped my hands on a long ride.
