Hello!

My Q is for those of you which have new model and about 180-185 cm and cca 100 kg.

I wasn't ride new model (I sat on it) and I would change for my 954 2003.
In my country, test team of new blade said that the Blade is stinting and have gruelling siting position.

Is this true?

Thanks!

Not sure what you mean by "stinting".

I am 6'2 ( 182 cm ) and I find the Blade pretty comfy for an out and out litre sports bike.

Not sure how weight comes in to it. I am currently 78 kilos after a massive health kick :)

I'm 6' 3" and find the riding position even more comfortable than the 06 Blade. The position is a little more upright with plenty of room to tuck in also.

Yes, I nonice different riding position when ride 06' model - more wider leg position around frame, more peaked handlebar and higher footrests compare to my 954.
When I sat on 08', I feel closer to 954 than cbr 06'.

i sat on the08 and found that it would be rough on me.I would be through if i had to ride that bike all day.i was happy bout it though. I love the bike so much that if it was comfy I might have bought the thing right then.
