The bars would offer the same look and protection they do on any X bike. Plus you'd have some more options to add wind/weather protection, highway pegs and driving lights.
Personally, if I had a Magnum I'd go with the Forged bars...

Yeah, that's why I asked. There are way more options for the round bars versus the forged ones. Looking at doing some matching hard lowers. Like the wind control as I plan on riding in the winter.

Round bars here too , if you want factory hard lowers they are mandatory . Never cared for the look of the forged bars , and the round bars afford lots of tip over protection as I dropped my bike in a near accident and all it did was scuff the bottom of my bar ... Drop your bike and your likely done for the season while you fix thousands in damage .....

Not sure what look your going for but VicBaggers has a nice set of handlebars and matching highway bars. Model name is Tarzanz. The are round with a rise (spike). These are pulling me their way. Just a thought. Enjoy the hunt!

I like the look of the forged bars over the tubular ones. If I decide to keep the hard lowers off, I might offer them in trade with the lowers for a forged set...

Wow!!! I like these bars. Wonder if the soft lowers from Vic will fit these. Like that style.

i have had the hard lowers and the forged bar on my tour and prefer the lowers to the forged bar, seemed to have more turbulent air around me with the forged bar where the lowers seem to push it far enough away from me
