Well, I sat on the XSR700 today.

 

It was beautiful, but felt cramped. (I am 6'2" for comparison)

 

...will stick with the FZ07.

Are they in the US dealerships already it are you in a different country?

Aaannd....  The bike must not have left much of an impression or you just like to keep us in suspense.  😉  I haven't been to my local dealer in some time.  I should drop by soon and see what they have in stock.

Cramped on the XSR700 but not on the FZ-07? Sorry, but that sounds odd.

I'm about the same height and the FZ-07 feels like a significantly smaller bike than the XSR700.

Unless there's a reason that the XSR700 ergonomics aren't compatible with your body, it's a much more suitable machine for above average height riders, imho.

The tank cutouts were wrong for me. I have long legs. The FZ07 doesnt have this problem...i was really not expecting this, and am disappointed because i really like the styling.

I sat on the same grey bike that weekend.... Looks nice but I actually felt more stretched out... I'm only 5'7..... I will also stick with the FZ

 

I also really didn't like the new looks of the 2018 MT... It's subtle but noticeable.

I sat on an XSR700 at the dealership today.  It looks nice but I cannot see trading my FZ-07 in on one.  I am looking forward to seeing the MT-07 when they get one, but just out of curiosity.
