That’s a good point @kcoops, and hard for me to judge now, after having been off sports bikes for, eerr seven years. All recent bikes have been supermoto/enduro/nakeds/adventure bikes with much more comfortable positions.
I found the Aprilia RS600 too cramped for my tastes, like I was hunched over and riding a toy. Odd, as I’m 5’ 10", so hardly big. I’d have changed the clipons/yokes over on those as well to something lower, more racey, so it’d have been even more pronounced a cramp riding position.
From the first time I sat on a static V2 at the British GP, I remember it feeling just right, like I could really get down into it and hustle it. The test-ride proved that. I mean, it’s more cramped than any recent bike for me, but I knew I could get into it on the track.
When I sat on the V4 recently, that felt even weirder; much wider, but still hunched over a bit. The V2 felt more natural to me.
My best memories of sports-bikes are my old 2005 GSX-R 1000 and the 2013 Aprilia RSV4 APRC. The Suzuki was more comfortable, with the Aprilia being more compact, but handled much better at the track. Far less lardy
I also have a lot of experience on GSX-R 750’s. I always loved those at the track, the smaller size seemed to suit me. I think the V2 is going to give the same vibe.
