Using Raised higher bars from old Gen 2 V2 Tuono is great. Plus lowered the pegs 1".
I installed a set of higher bars from the old V2 Gen 2 Tuono. I didnt buy the originals as they are over USD$300 and instead bought the identical bar made by the original manufacturer who makes the Aprilia handlebars.
They are the ACCOSSATO HB173 bars on ebay. But I bought from www.ebay.it as it was a lot cheaper at about USD$70.
Oh, and many of the sellers said they didnt ship out of the EU so I messaged and most said they would.
Easy. No extensions to brake lines needed and no re-routing needed. In fact the whole install took 1.5 hours. And that included a beer or 3.
They are higher than stock. Closer to you than stock. And the angle for your hands sweeps back towards you a bit more and slightly downward (Even though they are higher).
Much more comfortable than stock for the wrist position and I LOVE them.
After putting the bars on, plus using a set of $40 lowering pegs from ebay, made the bike a comfortable beast for long longs days in the saddle. After installing I immediately rode almost 2,000km in the next 3 days. And my arms, wrists and ass were amazingly comfortable.
No decent pics on my phone so will post some later. And yes yes yes... I know this thread is worthless without pics.
But in these pics from a distance my bike (on the right) is next to a Tuono with normal bars and you can see the difference in height if you look carefully
You can also see the lowered pegs. Click the images for bigger pics.
