As we made our way out of town, I thought about the ergonomic revisions Suzuki has made to the bike. At a claimed 32.9 inches, the thickly padded saddle is more than a half-inch taller than before (Suzuki offers 20mm-lower and -higher accessory seats, as well). But because the front of the seat has been reshaped, even with my 32-inch inseam, I had no trouble getting both boots firmly planted on the ground at stops. The seating position provides a relaxed bend at the knees, while the interface with the 5.3-gallon fuel tank is much better than on the previous model. I was very comfortable, even after a long day of riding.
