The rider zone of the one-piece seat is just 810 mm off the ground, allowing feet to be placed firmly on the ground. Handlebar height does not place undue strain on the wrists and footpeg positioning prevents knees becoming tired while maximising control. 

The height-adjustable screen can be set to two different positions over 50 mm of travel, ensuring adequate airflow protection even at motorway speeds. Enhanced protection can be had by fitting the larger Plexiglas touring screen, available as an accessory. Comfortably separated rider and passenger footpegs and a snugly compact lateral silencer ensure maximum freedom of movement. The benefits of the riding position are evident during both every day and medium-length journeys and also ensure fun-packed sports riding.
