Kks1963007 What is a good out the door price for a new (in showroom for a few years) 2015 FJ07 ?

SpeedTracer That would be a godsend for shorter riders because lowering a bike can affect its ride geometry and just not worth it in the end compared to a lower option from factory, something that has undergone rigorous testing. Maybe that'll be the FJ03 or something along those lines.

SpeedTracer There's a lot of options now for shorter riders, think BMW came out with a compact adventure biked called the 310GS. Maybe Yamaha can do something similar with their touring and adventure models.

Yahaha Can't see how a Hayabusa would be good for short riders either. Anyone 5'5 and shorter would be tippy toeing on one. Add the weight that they need to balance and how wide the Busa is, you'd be in for a real tough time.

Street .... I don't know if you're trolling or if that was a serious answer. In what way is a Busa the best bike you've seen for shorter riders? I can think of tons of bikes that would be leaps and bounds better than a Busa for short riders. If seat height is you're only requirement looking at this, there's an issue.

Extreme when we have so many options these days unless you're so short that you have this issue with a lot of bikes, then that's just the norm for you.

Probably the best bike I seen for shorter riders is the Busa.... they just need stronger legs, really strong legs.

Yahaha The shorter riders in the world really don't have a lot of options that they can flat foot right off the bat. They do have quite a bit where they can rest on the balls of their heels and that's alright. But it's sort of something they learn when going through a moto-life that you're going to have to learn how to get used to leaning constantly when stopped and rest on one leg. I see it all the time.

yamirider You'd be surprised at the things some riders do, some even get into the habit of leaning when stopped just so they can be flat footed and comfortable. Its a bit extreme but if you really love a certain bike... that might be your only option.

Yahaha Lol it's a bittersweet feeling ain't it. I'm pretty vertically challenged so my "easy riding" bikes are limited but thankfully, I've figured the ways of managing larger bikes so I'm not too bothered.
