Dragster owners:bigger riders

Seeing some good deals on used dragsters pop up and i've always loved the look of them. Sadly i'm 3-4 hours from any dealer so I can't jump on one to see how they fit me. I'm 6ft pretty athletic build with 32L pants. I know I fit on a rivale which is initially what I was going to get because they are an absolute blast, just want to confirm taller riders on these before I drive to go test one. I've had smaller friends tell me they were small for them.

I'm 5' 7", 160lbs, and a size 30. Mine fits me perfectly fine.

You're not mentioning which modelyear dragster, since 2018 there is a new shape.
Make it a nice daytrip ride, to and back from that dealer.

a 6 feet dude can say it feels nice and solid. While maybe you hate the position.
I've read & heard multiple people say the Dragster has a fix position. Shape makes you drop into the dip of the seat. (2015-2017) 2018+ seems to have a bit more space.
From 2018 onwards I think you can take the gamble on someone words. Way better seat.

Here: a sideview picture (2015 model). Maybe it helps.

I have exactly the same stats as you and I find my Dragster to be comfortable enough for 2 to 3 hours riding. Slight aches and pains after this time, but this could be down to being old and unfit

+1 For making the trip down to Ducshop. Mark is great to work with and has loyal clients that have the old and new design dragster.

Hi, excellent question. I have a 2018 Dragster RR, and I am five foot five, thirty inch inseam and yeah not too big. For me, the Dragster is a superb fit. I personally think for taller riders, up to six foot, it could work. Leg length is key perhaps. I find the geometry snug in the leg area. Seat, for me gives just enough room to move around, and it is comfortable for up to 3 hour rides.

Definitely find one to sit on before spending the money. Phenomenal bike. Huge fun. Very fast. Beautiful. Great handling.

I’m 6’7” and about 210 lb. The bike fits well, a bit small for my legs as to be expected but not small enough to be uncomfortable. I’ve done multiple 5+ hour day rides on it and am not hurting in the end. I’d say you shouldn’t have an issue with fitting.

2019 Dragster sits a good bit higher than the brutale and pegs are lower, I would say the 2019 Dragster would suit a larger guy better than both the brutale & F4, again the foot pegs sit lower and you tend to scrape your foot when cornering unless you tuck your feet right up (toes on pegs)

Presently looking for an F4 to join collection, ideally a F4 1078
