Strengths:    Stiff = Good.

More weight = stiffer (not necessarily, strictly speaking, but practically, that's how it is, whatever the marketing people want to tell you.

More weight = cheaper.


Less money = better handlebar.

Obviously, this theory has its limitations, but practically speaking, I think I'm onto something here.

Weaknesses:    None.

Bottom Line:   
Three words: No. Perceptible. Flex.

The bends are comfy, and in comparison with my old EA70, it's not perceptibly heavier. But then, either held by itself is not a noticible mass, so youo could hold one up for a while, look away and forget that it's there. Stand to accelerate and the bike just goes.
