Now that there is a still of the R3 including rider I thought it would be a good time to spark up the ergonomics discussion... The debut bike Valentino had was shown with fairly aggressive ergos for the street. Weather that was in actuality or part of play I'm not sure...




The pegs on the concept bike are actually farther forward than I would of expected, similar to R15.




So here is the lone spyshot of the R3, rider and all. Difficult to tell from the angle, and of course rider dimensions are going to vary, but there does seem to be more bend at the knee on the R3...

I like that this bike will have a forward lean. It may have a smaller displacement engine, but the bike looks and feels like it is ready for the track. Looks like fun.

It sure does help to have it like that, i prefer to have a forward lean like that and not to be more up right

it may just be differences in rider size, but it looks like R25/R3 has more knee bend, perhaps the pegs are a bit farther back. Although I don't see them getting too obscene with it as it will likely see most of its duty as a commuter.

Yeah it could be that, another reason why im interested in seeing the bike in person and getting to sit on it. I lack patience LOL

Another thing we can discuss whihc is related to the ergo is the clip on height. Just referencing from the leaked/spy shots the height doesn't seem too aggressive. Should be ok to deal with.

I feel like the R25 isn't really going to be that comfortable to ride for a very long distance though. More for shorter jaunt than long road trips, wouldn't you say?

What do you expect from a sport bike?
