I saw a review on Youtube yesterday from a guy in Antwerp who is 6 ft 5. He said it was fine for him.

Search Youtube for Jef Motard.


Top speed is supposed to be about 125mph, or 200kph.

Looks like the pegs are slightly lower on the 09? I think you look fine on the 07, but I'm 6 feet 2 inches and ride a Hawk GT so I'm used to things being pretty snug...

How is the handlebar width difference between the two? I'm told the the 07 is a few inches shorter in bar length.

Pegs same height as FZ 09.

Front seat, however, is 1 inch lower.

Why cant you test it?

Any dealer that says no to a test ride on a bike I am looking to purchase, can also say no to me being a customer of theirs.
Its absolutely ridiculous the stories I hear about dealers not allowing people to test ride bikes. Can you imagine if this happened in the car industry?

Dealers here in Arizona USA don't allow test rides which sucks. It would be nice if at the very least they had a demo unit to try but I guess they don't want to spend the money on units.
