Technischer Überwachungsverein (Technical Inspection Association, or TüV) in Germany is an independent laboratory that tests the fatigue strength, manufacturing quality, and fitment for a wide range of consumer products, with special emphasis on automotive and motorcycle components and accessories. Biltwell handlebars and risers that have received TüV verification are among the strongest and most thoroughly well-tested motorcycle parts in the world.
Ape handlebars have a purpose beyond their classic chopper aesthetic, and that is to alter the bike's aerodynamic profile by raising the rider's hands level with or slightly above shoulder height. This increases the front profile going down the highway, which in turn reduces headwind pressure against the rider's chest at higher speeds. It's the same principle as a windshield, without the plastic appendage jutting off the forks. NOTE: Your motorcycle's clutch cable, brake line and/or hand control wires may not be long enough to safely install this bar. Double-check these components before taking the stock bars off your motorcycle.
