There’s a variety of ‘bar risers’ available for the R1200GS from various sources such as Touratech, Nippy Norman etc but they’re limited by a fixed rise and/or setback. However these ‘pivoting’ bar risers from ROX are more practical in that you can alter their position forwards or backwards via the rotational mounting points allowing you to find the right riding position that suits you best.
