Butterfly handlebar with grips?

Is it possible to have butterfly handlebar with grips?

Bike Friday for example has a propriety H handle bar with long horns that splits in the middle and allows to insert non bending grips such as Ergon GP1 (my favorite). Are there similar butterfly or other multi position bars that allow to insert non bending grips?

Currently I use a straight bar with Ergon GP1 and Performance Forté OS bar ends but the bar ends are too short for my taste and do not provide sufficient holding positions.

Thanks,

Kam

Sure, just get Nashbar trekking bars or similar. Each side ends with a long straight section, perfect for grips, shifters, and brake levers.
