Lower bars for M-type Brompton

I came across these while looking at Bromptons on google.

Anyone know anything about them?

It says it's all sold out and there is no firm schedule set for the next round. Looking very nice though.

Just google "high riser mountain bike handlebar", you will get a few options with 5 degrees very similar to these handlebars:

I've tried that, but most of the decent ones have too low rise and too much sweep.

Most of those bars with the exception of the orange bike (photographed outside on a bike stand) still look too much like the “M” type’s bars.

Oh and can anyone tell me why people insist on photographing Bromptons with their seats far to low to be ridden either comfortably or efficiently?
