Brutale Handlebars

Has anyone switched out the stock handlebars for a Brutale? I'm looking for a more agressive look even if that means sacrificing some comfort. Any recommendations? Pictures?

Thanks!

You could try chopping the bars. On our show Ducati Streetfighter, we used the Rizoma conical bars and chopped the ends off by 3/4".



Here's what we ended up with:

Lower and straighter. I held one next to the stock bars when I was looking at doing this, and it don't look much in photos, but its pretty drastic change.

Wasn't to my taste in the end looks wise.

How much farther forward are they? I measured a Duc 696 and my 910 is 5" closer to the seat.

Smile Brutale Handlebars

Sorry for the late reply....The holiday weekend got the best of me having to do my "honey-do" list and dealing with my two young girls. Thanks for everyone's input. I'll definitely will check out Sydney 910R's gallery for some ideas. We'll see where this goes...

Those are some nice photos, Sydney 910R!! That look with the S4R bars are exactly what I'm looking for. I definitely will really consider going that route. Thanks again for the info!

If you want aggressive bars go with bars from a Ducati streetfighter.
There's a set of streetfighter bars for sale in the classified section on this forum (not mine).
The SF bars are even more aggressive than the monster bars, I swapped out the bars on my sf for monster bars to get a little more relaxed.
If I were doing a lot of trackdays this the bar I'd get.
