Title: My height is 5 feet 8 inch, can I ride Yamaha R15 V3?

If we talk about ergonomics R15 version 3 (https://autoportal.com/newbikes/yamaha/yzf-r15-v3/abs.html), its sporty riding position comes courtesy an 815mm high rider seat (up by 15mm over the v2). Despite the taller seat, we did not have an issue placing both feet on the ground. Riding position has become more aggressive and while it worked well on the track, riding in the city for an extended period did leave a minor discomfort in our wrists and upper back. Other than the clip-ons, which now feel lower, the low-set footpegs are comfortable and the rest of the bike too didn't give us any reason to complain. You do need to be careful while taking U-turns though as the bars come pretty close to the fuel tank, and your hand getting too close to your knee during full lock does cause some issues. Especially on right hand U-turns, itís rather difficult to open the throttle as your wrist is resting on the tank at full lock.
