I managed to sit on an NC700X at a different dealers a couple of days ago. There's nothing wrong with the riding position as such, and the seat felt like it would be comfortable over distance. But it was way too tall for me at 5'6" (with a fairly long inseam for my height). I can very nearly flat foot my FZ1, but I was on extreme tiptoes with the NC700X. It's too high for me to even feel confident enough to take it on a demo ride, let alone own one, particularly since it's nearly as heavy as the FZ1. I will probably take out the NC700S when it appears though, just out of interest. The seat height is 40 mm lower than the NC700X and it's a whole 3 kg lighter (so all of 6 kg lighter than my FZ1).
