Mine are like this  https://www.amazon.co.uk/Suzuki-Moto-Cra...B0797TMZVW  where the bottom tubes are just a push fit  into the mounting bracket which is bolted to the bottom engine mount.
I never thought just a push fit mounting was a terribly rigorous bit of engineering, even though the top mount looks pretty strong.
I`ve not thrown the bike up the road to test out the integrity of the crash bars, and I`ll leave it that way, thanks.
Looks like you`ll have to be inventive ...

Ah, light starts to dawn in the vast vacuum between my ears. The position of my bars might be too high - not allowing the tabs to go in the "Y" of the frame to get close to the engine mount, maybe. I shall have another play with them on the weekend, it might not be quite the ache in the nethers that it looks like.

Re the pushfit, I totally agree, I never really trust them, but I guess in this application the force is mostly towards the centre if you bin it. It does make me think that a connection between the lower bars, like yours have, would add more stability to the whole construction and destress the engine mount.

Thanks for the help so far, I'll keep you posted.
