    I'm not sure. I never sat on the new r6. I believed they changed the subframe on the new one so it is probably a little bit different

    If I recall correctly they redesigned the seating position on the 2017 to have a more "sit in the bike" feel. 2016 and earlier you're up higher for more of that "sit on the bike" feel.

    Yes! I can’t ride an 06-16 r6 to save my life because of that. Just can’t get comfortable. The new seating position is very favorable.

    Can the new subframe be put on a 16 for that in bike feel? I notice that high seat position on my 16 R6.

    Can anyone confirm this?? I have a 2016 and the wife is trying to transition from her R3 to the R6 and anything I can do to lower the seat height without affecting performance would just be amazing. I would assume if the new subframe makes you sit more into the bike that it also lowers the seat height. If this is the case does anyone know if the subframes are compatible?? I’d make the switch in a heartbeat.

    I had a 16 and 17 at the same time, the seat height is the same, distance to the pegs is the same, the tank changed so much that you feel less like you sit on top.. the new subframe won't make it sit any lower
