Rizoma drag bar riding position?

Hi!
How do you find riding position with with Rizoma drag bar handlebars especially on long rides? I think it's similar to Italia Independent standard bars, much lower even in comparison to Full Throttle bars. I only sat on the Italia Independent at the dealer and I found the position very comfortable for me (I'm 173 cm high). But sitting isn't riding, and I consider changing bars to the one from Rizoma - either low fat bar or even lower drag bar. I ride a lot and I'm trying to find the best compromise between looks and comfort. Thanks for your thoughts!

I have heard it is painful installing low drag bar due to limited room. However I have seen people do it. You will have to play around with cables and it will be a tight squeeze for the controls. Not sure about low fat bar.

I am looking for a similar riding position. I am curious about Rizoma 1-1/8 Inch Diameter White Tapered Handlebars vs Full Throttle bars. What is the difference?!?

That's exactly what I'm thinking about I made a comparison between II and FT bars. Rizoma fatbar shoud be somwhere in between, depending on height (it comes in three various sizes, as far as I can remember).

2016 FT w/ Rizoma 1 1/8 bars

I have a 2016 FT and went with the Rizoma 1 1/8 bars. I really like them - very well made and very stiff, but still provide a little shock absorption. They are a little lower than the stock FT bars and I find the position perfect. Note that you'll have to either drill holes in the Rizoma bars OR dremel off a couple of tabs on the stock parts that attach to the bars. I did the latter, and I've had NO problems with everything staying secure. I also have the Rizoma Fly Screen and Tach/Speedometer relocate kit, and many, many other mods...

Thank you, Max. This is very helpful!

By any chance can you upload a pic of your bike with the handlebars? I had my bike since 2015 and this is the year I am finally making mods. Wanted to see more parts come out for the bike. Thanks!

FT with Rizoma bars

I'm traveling and these are the only pictures I have handy. I can send better ones in a couple of days. You get to see my 2011 Diavel Carbon too.
