can you compare S1000RR with 959 in terms of weight distribution, handling at lower speeds, nimbleness? Does it feels lighter/heavier, what's your general impression if we exclude power?
, have you rode 1299? Can you do the same comparison in terms of weight feel? I'm interested in 959, but I like 1299 details and lower weight, but in real traffic and commute I wonder which one is more suitable, and I don't need 1299 power in any case.
If you can compare them to R6/GSXR750 2008+ it would be great, I've test rode these two, but not 899/959 yet. Thanks in advance.
At first I was into monster (trying to change my direction because I'm coming from supersport bikes), but panigales are really beautiful, and I'm into monster 1100evo which is used, air cooled, and I assume more twitchy in low speed traffic but I wonder which one is more nimble, because 959 wet weight is 200kg EU, probably 190kg with full akrapovic, and monster says 188kg. If anyone has driven both, that comparison would be nice to.
