Which gen for taller rider

Hi all. Between the 1st gen and 2nd gen F4, which one seems to accommodate those with long limbs? I’m 6’1 with long arms and legs.

I haven’t ruled out a Rivale or Brutale. But I’ll admit I’ll partial to the F4s due to their beauty.

You will fit fine on both, I’m 6’ 5 And I can be moderately comfortable on the first generation with adjustable rear sets. Plenty of tall riders fit well on these bikes as they form well to your body.

Look around for a very recent thread titled “6’8 and heartbroken?” it’s explained in detail some of the options you have

What we've got here, is failure to communicate.

The 312R is more comfortable than a First Gen 750. The ERGOs are slightly different.

Whichever bike you buy, these are very functional.

Correct S and in actual fact, there is a big difference between the two

I have an early 750. I'm 182cm (just under 6ft). But I have long legs. I 'm 40 and found it took alittle getting used to on the knees early on. It is always a bit hard on the hands/wrists. For comparison an SP1 feels like a cruiser in comparison on the wrists and my R6 track bike is more comfortable than the MV too. That being said I will be riding MV down to Phillip Island for the Moto GP this year so it can't be that bad.
