The problem is the person that is interested in this bike is 5' 0" with a 27.5" inseam...this person had a 2011 Ninja 250 that also had to have the bike lowered 2" as well as having the seat cut down simply to get the balls of her feet on the ground.... She also really likes the adventure bike styling, windscreen, upright riding position, and availability of hard bags. She has seen, and does not care much for the styling of other two CBR's despite their slightly lower seats.

If no one comes out soon with a suitable solution for lowering the X, she will be stuck with a G650GS L.S., a Kouba Link, and a reworked seat.

Not necessarily a bad place to be stuck IMHO...but options are a good thing.
