I have the opposite problem to you... and if i found that bike even remotely attractive - I don't. I wouldn't be put off by the OE seat height - I'd have it altered - in my case probably by adding 4" of foam - in your case, the original foam removed completely and replaced with a higher quality foam that doesn't require so much to be just as comfortable.

But for a short person they are limited by the base of the seat, it will always have to be so wide which seems to be the biggest limiting factor, especially on modern bikes. You can have pretty much what you want when getting the seat built up.

It doesn't say how wide it is - you'd need to see it in the flesh first. It may be wide - it may not. But anyway - its a Japanese bike and in general the japanese aren't particularly renowned for being a tall people. 5'7 being the mean.

Anyone else looking forward to a single big round headlight returning to fashion?

Yes, a big round headlight would be an improvement, as would shaft drive. Otherwise, I quite like the style. Wet weight of 188kg is good, fuel tank of 14L not so good. Perhaps the seat is really really uncomfortable and no-one will want to ride 200 miles on it.

I guess the lack of any photos of the bike in the great outdoors is a giveaway to its purpose - street riding. Extended rider comfort and a long tank range aren't so important

A little video of it running and idling. Spoiler - it's yawneriffic. It is managing to cause quite a stir in the TRX community though being lighter and more powerful, I'll wait and see what the fuel consumption is like because I'm incredibly dull at heart wink
