I would like it to feel less top-heavy, with better handling and more agility. Bob
That would be a Sport Bike.
I found my V is as top heavy as I expected, especially two up. I can roll to a stop sign or light very slowly almost to a stop occasionally timing it to where I don't need to put a foot down. Handling at fast or slow speed is very good and plenty agile. I have ridden off road (fire and forest service roads) even two up. Two up on some pretty rutted and rock strewn roads again I was pleased at the balance I could keep at a slow pace and very rarely having to put a foot down to regain balance. Having a good passenger does make my job easier. I am pleased all around.
