I looked at a couple SS's and a couple S's before I bought my Monster. They are cool to look at but the riding position would kill me. Monsters have better ergos for street riding. JMO. YMMV.

Obviously comfort is subjective but I'll say by Duc is far more comfortable than my Sport 1100.

Monsters are most comfortable for shorter people.

Belt drive SSs are most comfortable for people of medium height.

Sportis and Daytonas are good for taller people.

I'm a thin 6 foot and my 96 900 Monster feels fine...And better after getting a Sargent seat, the stock seat pushed me forward....

I guess that's subjective.  I've owned both a '97 900SS and '07 S2R1000, and i preferred the ergos of the 900SS.  The bar on the Monster was too flat for me.  I think taller riders are better off on the Monster while shorties (like me) will prefer the 900.

My 900 was a perfectly comfortable all day ride once i installed the Sargent seat and Racetech suspension.

I've owned this 97 for 2 years now,I love it, but I couldn't ride it accross country,at 65 my back cant stand the riding position.So its 100 miles or less kind of bike for me. The engine is a dream, unbelievable torque for 900 cc,I've got the stock CV carbs dialed in, the bike performs  great with the stock carbs. My bike is the CR version with the quarter fairings,but just for fun and to give it a different look I made these aluminum quarter fairing pieces .The originals parts go with the bike when and if I sell it.
