SX vs VFR ergos

Post by UFO » Sat Dec 23, 2017 6:26 pm


Here's the SX vs VFR overlay I was referring do that I created. I've owned two VFRs and found it have a good compromise between sport and comfort ergos. I'll still probably throw on some bar risers though.

SX pegs look to be just slightly more forward. But the seat to tank contact is also slightly more forward.

Looks like the SX pegs may be slightly higher aswell. Tyre bars look a little higher and more forward as well.

Looking at it some more it looks like the whole chassis of the sx is more forward compared to the wheels. The mirrors look lower on the sx in relation to the tank. Maybe that means it's a little more on the sport side. The seating position on my Concours always felt weird to me. I felt like Forrest Gump sitting on the park bench or Mary Poppins riding her bike. The sporty edge of the spectrum is alright with me.

Found this pic on a Japanese website. Comparing the ergos of H2SX, SX (Ninja 1000) and ZZR (ZX14)

Looking at that picture it looks like the rearsets/footpegs are in the same spot on all three bikes in relation to the seat?

No idea how accurate it is... Seems more a comparison of handlebar heights... :scratch:

Seems odd that the Ninja 1000 would be more of an upright riding position than the H2SX. :scratch:

Yeah, I was hoping it would be the same position.. but anyways this is no surprise, Kawasaki did mention it in the preview.

I think it's pretty encouraging. I prefer muy bikes to be more on the sport side. It was really hard for me to get rid of my zx10r. I think the zx14r is a comfy bike so I'm looking forward to this coming out.
