Yep that's where I looked. Note though that many of the bikes in there aren't properly rendered re: seating position.

To wit, look where the guy on the FJR is sitting v. where the guy on the Trophy is sitting. The FJR guy's butt is considerably farther back, creating much of that forward lean. I'm not saying that there isn't any forward lean, but it's not nearly as much as in that pic.

That may be as far forward as a Rider can sit on a FJR ?

DrThunder :

Where did you get the peg lowering kit ?

JV

Quoted from my subsequent post on the subject:

"...if you check cycle-ergo.com you can see that the knee angle on the FJR is 76, and on the Trophy it's 79, meaning that the Trophy is slightly roomier...my memory failed me on that one :)"

DrThunder:

So, where did you acquire the peg lowering kit ?  I would also like to lower my pegs.

I do not have a peg lowering kit. If I could raise them a little I would.

Not sure where the confusion is there.

I had an FJR. Also a fabulous bike in the same class.
It comes down to personal preference .. I'm sure your read all about their differences.
For me personally here are why I prefer the Trophy just a bit:
-more upright relaxed sitting position
-better seats
-it's hard to reach the ground around the FJR's wide I4 engine
-the pillion has a bit more room and sits higher (doesn't have my helmet in her face)
-my FJR Gen 2 had no cruise and no electronics
-I prefer the bigger fairing

Both are equally awkward in the garage, but the Trophy is wider at the mirrors.

I do miss the solid aftermarket of the FJR.
