asian bikes versus italian
 
I was told by a unamed person with one of the bike factories,that asian bikes are built for average Americans in (height),and italian bikes are built for Euros who are shorter. I wonder the truth in this but if you read different motoycle mags.taller testers usually find fault in comfort.Maybe there not adjusting the pegs ect... I am not saying this is true,i dont even know if americans are taller I know i am not. tom

What euro's are shorter? Imo they are taller than Americans. At least... the Dutch are...

I am not sure about the Euros but the US ergonomics are setup for a typical American male of 5'9". (Thanks God for aftermarket rearsets :king: )

Its no lazy boy, but I love my Brutale!:smoking: I did ride my buddys Buell XB12R the other day, I felt like a monkey f***king a football or a bear riding a tri-cycle :laughing: I feel more comfortable on f4's than that buell. I have had several monsters, M750, M900, M900S, BMW Dakar and they all fit just fine. Next on the list is an F4 1000, hopefully.

I have found that both my Gixxers and my R1 were lower than my MV... I've never fiddled with the stock settings on any bike.
