They're commonly referred to as Superbike Bars.
When you are Dead, you don't know that you are Dead. It is difficult only for Others.

It is the same when you are Stupid.

They're commonly referred to as Superbike Bars.

They also work well on the bigger, heavier bikes.

I have them on my GL1000, and put them on the '79 CB750F that I rebuilt over the winter. Back in '75 I bought a brand new RD400, but told the dealer to go down to Honda and get CB400F bars to put on it (original Yamaha bars felt like a dirt bike to me). They were very similar low-rise bars. I've also seen them very similar sold as "Euro" bars.
