Any new '07 you'll find in a dealership will have the same bars/seats as your '05 had when new. The risers/seats etc are optional extras here in the UK, but are fitted as standard for the foreign markets.On 2006-11-16 12:07, Django wrote:
Good points - I guess I need to find an '07 to compare riding positions before I buy.
I believe it's only like an inch or so, but my wife says that makes a difference! :-DOn 2006-11-17 09:24, GRN wrote:
has anyone seen the specs on the new bars, like how far up and how far back? Talked to one guy who got to sit on an '07 at one of the early shows and said he was pressed to notice a difference.
Hi Tim,Any new '07 you'll find in a dealership will have the same bars/seats as your '05 had when new. The risers/seats etc are optional extras here in the UK, but are fitted as standard for the foreign markets.
No, fair enough man. My info was from a salesman at Pidcocks in Long Eaton who when I asked why the new '07 ST I was sitting on didn't have the revised bars and seat fitted replied that they were options on the UK-supplied bikes but would be OEM for overseas machines. Does your local dealer have an '07 in their showroom?Hi Tim,
I am interested to know where this information comes from as it is not what the factory told me when I phoned and it is not what it says on their UK website. I quote:
"The same high handlebar setup as provided on the 2007 model. . . available as an Accessory kit for pre 2007."
The seat is said to be different too, it has been made 'even comfier' for this year.
Not saying I am right, but just trying to get at the truth.
