dear All,
can you please show detailed pictures of how it should look like a R75/5 'short' European handlebar?
in particular, I am interested to see the pattern of the bend, the distance between the bend and the switches, the largness of the handlebar and so on
also is there anyone who may know where to get one? it seems that BMW has discontinued the production..
Thank you!

BMW bars are 22mm while lots

BMW bars are 22mm while lots of places sell 7/8" bars. At any rate, you might look at Flanders:

Sorry...all I found was "BMW

Sorry...all I found was "BMW Euro low bar"...I thought that would help. I've never seen a set in person.

Try googling "bmw motorcycle european low handlebars" and see what you can find.

Low handlebars

For my R75/5 I installed handlebars with the BMW part no. 32 71 1 233 126. I found the narrower profile more sporty and comfortable on long distance trips as I am more streamlined. I found the US bars too upright, resulting in greater wind resistance and therefore more effort to hold on. My average riding speed is about 110 km/h (70 mph). The lower bars require me to lean forward a bit, but the rush of air at speed creates a neutral stance.
