Our new RT handlebars are the result of a dedicated understanding of ergonomics, increasing rider comfort while improving performance (and always considering safety). This philosophy has been in place for almost 30 years, and contributes significantly to highly refined products developed with crystal clear engineering. Consider these features, and not cost, when choosing an ergonomic update for your RT:
#1 HeliBars utilizes low carbon steel components that are meticulously machined and welded together to form a single handlebar tube assembly. Finish is an ultra UV resistant powder coat, matched to the stock silver to give it a seamless appearance
#2 HeliBars added an anti-rotation device that assures the handlebar will not rotate in it’s mount should the mounting bolt loosen. While proper torquing and the use of blue medium strength Loctite should assure this never happens, we respect Murphy’s law and have included this safety feature so our customers can ride with peace of mind.
#3 Quick, perfect alignment of the handlebars during installation. Another benefit of our anti-rotation devices is their ability to position and perfectly mirror both left & right handlebars in the correct position.
#4 We’ve included a stock “handlebar extractor” tool as well as blue Loctite, making it a complete and simple installation.
#5 The numbers (compared to stock handlebar position):
- 1 3/4″ taller
- 1 1/4″ closer to the rider
- 1/2 degree increase in downward angle at the end of the bar for a more natural wrist angle
- Width increased to 30 1/2 inches (from 28.5 inches), this is GS/GSA spec width
This makes the RT feel 100lbs lighter! The additional width DRAMATICALLY improves your low speed handling and control, increasing your long distance comfort!
We think when you try these HeliBars you will agree that they are the best ergonomic solution for your BMW R1200RT!
