The Falco has me intrigued. If you can go by Motorcyclist Magazine's measurements a Falco has a more relaxed riding position in every dimension than a '03 SV650S.
Peg to Seat: 17.5" vs 17.3"
Seat to Bars: 29.6" vs 29.9"
Effective Bar Rise: 3.2" vs 2.0"
Does this seem correct to you?
Since I have some ligament damage I am limited as to exactly what I can ride. There are no local Aprilia dealers so I would hate to travel to another state to look at a bike I may not be able to ride.
If this seems correct I may start looking for a nice left-over '01-'02 or a low mile used Falco.
Somehow this bike just calls to me in a way that others don't.
