So after quite a few kms and a 500 trip, my final impressions are excellent
The new stance is ideal for sport riding as it puts more weight on the front, allows easier movement on the saddle and offers more leverage and better handling of the bike in general.
After 300 highway kms I found the new stance to be more relaxed and comfortable for my body type. It is lower so my helmet generates less wind noise as it now is in the correct angle. Better elbow angle and easier to kiss the tank too. No extra fatigue on my back and wrists
In the city the extra width is noticeable only during manoeuvres which require the bike to come to a complete stop.
