Actually the jump was really easy! The 959 is so light it honestly feels very similar to my R3. The 959 flicks in and out of corners very easily just like my R3. I rode the 959 in wet mode for 3 months until I was used to the power, now I have it in sport mode and have done a few track days on it. Still haven't broken it in yet, so I am going to stay away from Race mode until I break 1550 miles. I love the L twin engine - it actually sounds somewhat similar to my R3 (with a full exhaust) bc they are both twins. So glad I bought the 959 over an R6 or R1, i just love the L twin engine! So torquey!
