Has anyone been to a bike show yet where Honda will allow spectators to sit on the new Fireblade?
The bars are reportedly 2" lower, with pegs a little higher and set back. However, difference in seat-to-peg and seat-to-bar distances (as in Motorcyclist mag reviews) are not described. The seat height is listed as 32.5" vs. 32.1" for the 954, which could help compensate for higher pegs.
My height is 6'3.5", with 34" inseam and 37" sleeves. I am comfortable on the '02 954, and could probably tolerate lower bars due to arm length if the other ergonomics are as roomy as the 954.
