Imagine this situation: you meet all the conditions (license, budget and riding skills) and the moment every biker wants to choose a model arrives. Will it be a sports car? Or maybe a naked? In such a decision there will be many aspects to take into consideration: engine capacity, components, accessories, aesthetics, to name a few. After much consideration, you finally make up your mind and set out to buy. However, what if the seat of that long-awaited bike is too high? It’s not the end of the world, we have the solution for you.
When the seat of your motorcycle is too high
The different models of motorcycles are adapted to the needs of the riders: for long journeys, for rough roads, for everyday use. The various designs and ergonomics may be ideal for some but uncomfortable for others. A very sporty motorcycle could be tiring for a rider who prefers something less powerful. And a scooter will be a bit boring for those who prefer speed and aerodynamics.
But among all these factors that can play for or against you, there is one that cannot be allowed:that the seat of your bike is too high. This would make it impossible to land on the ground with both feet once mounted on the motorcycle, reducing control and balance. This is a very relevant aspect in driving safety because, without both extremities resting on a surface, the risk of falling increases.
This happened to Henzsel, one of our customers. Get to know its history.

However, our customer noticed that, despite being 5’6″ tall, it was difficult to reach the ground with both legs when riding.
There are alternatives for riders with this problem: reduce the height of the motorcycle or take advantage of the momentum of the start to get on the motorcycle. We have already discussed this topic in a previous
