    Dam this bike is HUGE!

    I was looking one of these over when I was at Hamburg Honda picking up my initial repair quote for the VFR1200F and my thought is that you would need to be 6' or taller to fit on this bike. Seriously huge beast. It is used with next to no miles for sale on consignment if any parties are interested.

    You didn't say what bike but I went on their website and assume you're referring to the VFR1200X with 70 miles they have listed? I've sat on one and can confirm they are pretty damn big, at least compared to my 800. I'm 6'2" and it felt way too big for my liking - but if you're used to goldwing/cruisers it probably wouldn't seem that big.

    I'm 5'5 and very nearly bought one, personally I found it a better fit than the 800.

    Nelix, are we talking about the same bike? At 5'5" you would have to be built like Kermit the freaking Frog to fit on the VFR1200X - lol. I just checked the specs and they list the seat height at 33.5" (compared to 31.0-31.8" on our 8th gens). It's also got a huge wheelbase - listed at 62.8" compared to our 57.4"

    The seat height is 33.5 inches, that doesn't sound very high? Is that incorrect?

    ^ have you sat on a bike with a 33.5 seat height? most or off road due to suspension needs, Something along the lines of the Africa twin as well.
    Opportunity is where you anticipate it.

    Making the VFR have more get up and go. Header build fund @ https://www.gofundme.com/vfr-header-build

    Never that height and yes the same bike. With my gf on the back I was flat footed.
    Sat on two as it did cross my mind the 1st may have had the narrower seat fitted, but other one was the same.
    Only looked at them as I was coming from a ZX10R, but at the end of the day I decided I didn't really need the extra power.
