Explorer bars?

I prefer the slightly narrower width of the Roadie bars.  yeah, it's only 5mm per side, but It's more comfy for me.

I did not know that the roadie had a different handlebar...
I would have liked it a little more bent.
Is the explorer s straight fit and whats the differences?
Thanks

I believe the Explorer bars bend a little more back towards the rider, sort of less straight, some think the Tiger bars place your hands and therefore elbows in an unnatural angle.

To ride with verve and elan -- get those elbows out! (otherwise, maybe not..?)  :033:

They used to back in the 2011-2014 models but I think that that is no longer the case. The Triumph web site says that the XR and XC ranges both have 795mm wide bars these days.

All four XR show 795mm. Both XC show 805mm

I looked at the Triumph Australia web site. One of them is obviously wrong.
