Superduke (and all KTMs I've ever ridden) have the most useless seat known to mankind... they are about 1/4 inch of foam and super soft.  It's like being on a racebike, IMO.

I honestly can't imagine anyone saying a Super Duke 1290R is comfortable...  did it have the powersports seat?

I didn't ride that long to see if the seat is uncomfortable on both bikes, they sure have better ergonomics than the S1000R (knee angles, upright riding position etc) so more comfortable for a tall rider :016:

I have tried the extended footpegs on my Aprilia Tuono, they do give better knee angle but you can't use rear brake properly (that is without lifting your foot to reach the pedal).

I was searching for the same thing and also couldn't find clear answer. The rearsets that I bought from eBay were higher than stock

I think someone claimed HP rearsets can go a bit lower but they are pricey (if they, indeed, go lower).
Adjustable footpegs give the legroom you desire BUT you'll have problems with brake and gear pedals (the angle of the gear pedal can be adjusted but you might have QS issues, brake pedal isn't even adjustable)...
IMHO, best chance of more legroom is to get a higher seat, comfort seat gives about 2cm more height

Going higher is not an option for everyone.
I'm 188cm/6'1 and still feel the wind with my wunderlich oblesik (aka marathon screen).

By the way, the rear brake is slightly adjustable. A friend did it for me when I got lowered pegs. But I still had to lift by right foot to use the brake.

This is pretty much what I have, they are not the cheapest but good quality. They do a 30mm solid extension arm that will combine and give you a max drop of about 75 mm. Keeping up physio surgeon says it may take a couple of years but knee will hopefully bend 90 degrees by then. Until then these certainly help. :046:

Thank you...and all the best with the knee..

These DO NOT go lower, not even in the same position. I had them and sold them because in their lowest position they fit about 1-1,5cm higher than stock rearsets.

I see now they are the same as you posted  :430: anyway was the build quality and materials good? I have really short legs so could go up a bit. A spill on some gravel took out the little peg on my shift lever and some new rearsets would be nice.

For some reason I stopped getting mail alerts so I thought there was no activity in this thread, good I was wrong.

On the comments.
Seat: I would like one, however I'm fairly short, just 175cm, with a 74cm inseam. With the suspension modifications the bike don't compress much anymore so I'm pretty much tiptoeing the bike as it is, an additional 2cm seat height is not what I need.

Adjustable pegs: Could be an option if I don't find anything else, but as people say, this could potentially mess up the brake/shifter geometry.

HP-Rearsets: Pricey for sure, but might be the only viable option, kind of hard to find specs, but they claim to have one lower, and two higher positions relative to stock, but stock -R or -RR. I have seen charts where rearsets positions are lower than stock for the -RR, but all are higher for the -R.

I'm really hoping I don't have to get a new bike over this.

Another possible fix is to spend a bit of time each day stretching those hip flexor muscles. Pay to do this before a decent ride too.

Cheaper than rear sets and may help with the hip issues you are experiencing. I can feel the difference personally when regularly doing this.
