As others have said they are Hepco and Becker bars.
A few pics as requested...

It looks like they stick out quite far when looking from the rear

They do follow the line of the plastic tank surround nicely

They stick out far enough to cover the indicators

Not sure if it is just the photo angle, or if bent the bar on the clutch side... they don't look to stick out too far when viewed from the front.

This side is yet to touch the ground, it won't be long though.

You will notice they have picked up a couple of scrapes when I fell off the thing last weekend.

This could have been the tank or radiator plastics that hit the ground.

Though it did bend the mounting lug a bit.

And the bar contacted the cylinder head!

In the same crash the Triumph engine bars picked up a new knock

The bike hit the hard packed ground with quite a bang

I am really happy with the triumph engine bars and I am certain I would have been replacing an indicator and maybe some plastics if I did not have the upper bars fitted, though the mark on the cylinder head is a little worrying.

I think I will maybe give the Touratech upper (radiator) bars a try, who knows maybe they will fit together with the Hepco & Becker ones?
