I had shoulder pain too until I rotated the stock bar slightly towards me. I adjusted the clutch and brake levers to suit and I put mirror extension blocks under Tuono mirrors.
I also have a Seat Concepts saddle and peg lowers. Those adaptations created ideal rider ergonomics for me. I'm 6' 2" with 34" inseam.
I would recommend that you explore some changes, one step at a time before giving up on the V. I would start with bar rotation and lever adjustments. There is no one size fits all in my riding experience. I have made adjustments on every bike I've owned.
