Maybe if we were talking about the DP bars, I would kind of agree with you here.
That being said, the subtle change in the Rizoma bars accommodates the natural placement of your hand better than any other. Being compared to a beach cruiser bar is a vast exaggeration when considering how slight of a change it is from the stock bars. Have you ever thought about spinning your Rizoma bars more towards you? Sounds like you don't have them adjusted correctly if you are somehow simulating beach cruiser bars with the Rizoma bars.
If you are trying to simulate a revvy race bike and want that aggressive riding position then the clip-ons are your bars. But I know I wouldn't be able to ride for long periods of time with those things.
