Canyon has several roads-less-traveled bikes now…the Grizl is way more popular. The AL Grail never got the biplane bars either.

Like you, I’ve pretty much never seen one in the wild here. Everyone’s on a Diverge, Checkpoint, Stigmata or Aspero.

I've also seen several Canyon Grails complete with hover bar in the wild. I know someone with one.

Didn't the UCI ban the use of that type of bar along with clip-ons in mass start races not too long afterwards?

I don't recall the Scott bar to be part of a ban... they were just useless so they died alone (I always got convinced it was purely a marketing tool to display the brand.
The clip-on got banned (guess was during 96 Lugano rulebook revamp, effective in 97) after causing few crashes.
