Ninja 400 is pretty upright. Perhaps consider a upgraded seat.....although so subjective and frankly more seat time helps with more seat timeThanks for that input. Helps confirm our thinking on this. With any luck we'll be checking a couple out on thurs/fri. I think we'll still checkout the z400 too as my wife does complain about getting sore on some of the longer trips we've done. Maybe the more upright riding position would offer her some more comfort? But then we have to weigh that against the lack of fairing too I suppose?
