Close to a decision

Broken down old body can't do F4's anymore. I like the Dragster RR. Anyone here make that switch and can you comment on the comfort difference??

Pants up, don't loot.

In general all MV Agusta are not for comfortl driving. If your body is "old" better a Turismo veloce because Dragster is not so confortable.

Any of the naked MVs are way more comfortable to ride than the "assume the position" fairing models. Just do it !!

My 2018 brutale is super comfy, and I donít get aches really - certainly not compared to my old cafe maybe sometimes along the seam of the seat... no wrist aches or anything like that.

My left wrist (no I use the other hand for that) makes riding a sport bike on the street painful after about 40 miles. The standard naked bikes have been much more comfortable than the 312R. Go for it!
