I'm obviously missing something in my interpretation of the knee bend angles quoted on the ergonomics site. Wouldn't a 100 degree angle of knee bend be more open
(less cramped) than, say, a 96 degree angle? If so, how can the knee angle of the K1200GT be 100' and that of the K1600GTL be 96'? That is, how can my knee be less
bent on my K1200GT than it is on the new GTL?
After having finally sat on the GTL yesterday, the GTL (and K1600GT as well) certainly feels
more open in my knee bend than my K1200GT feels. And while I was at the dealership I used a tape measure to compare the distance between the pegs and the lowest point of the seat on the K1600GT and the K1300GT they have on the floor beside it. With both seats set at the lowest position, the distance between the seat and pegs of the K1600GT is a whole two inches
longer than that of the K1300GT. That significant difference is certainly not going to make for a tighter
knee bend on the 1600GT, which the site claims has a knee bend of 91' while it claims the 1300GT has one of 98.
Even the comparison between the K1600GT (91') and the GTL (96') seems counterintuitive.
How am I reading these figures incorrectly? How can 91' be less
knee bend than 100'?
