I know this is not exactly answering your question I treid the 22 spec and the 21 spec v4. and found the lower seat hightnew member. I was about to buy a new 2022 V4S for street riding until I sat on it in the showroom. The foot controls seem fine for me at 5'10". The handle bar position is unfortunately a real issue for me. I am 67 with arthritis in both hands and neck/shoulders. On my several other bikes (including a Kawasaki H2 SX SE and a Kawasaki ZX14) I am fine after adding bar risers.
raising the bars on a 2022 V4 looks like more of a challenge. Clip ons below the top triple tree, and not much clearance to the fairing. The dealership was no help.
if I can't succesfully raise the bars, I can't ride the bike, and I really want to buy the bike..........
anyone? has anyone found a way to succesfully raise the bars on a V4? If so, how?
thanks in advance for any constructive answers
And narrower 21 bike better for and brought the 21 bike instead test rode both and preferred the slightly thinner 21 as a road bike there was no real notable difference in performance and handling to me
