hehe hey Fun

Yeah, I am kinda interested. I would like to think that the 990 is an improvement over the Fiddy, cos of the increase in low down torque, where the engine needs an improvement if any.

To achieve the same effect, the guys have dropped to a 16tooth upfront sprocket, which often makes it difficult to keep the nose down, even when trying to do so. Thats what is so cool with chains, is that you can change your ratios at will.

On the other hand, I dont like the reduction in height, if anything I want it higher, and these models are getting lower and lower.

I dont want ABS, and well the FI is cool.... but even to change the zorsts would require remapping... which is an expensive excercise. A guy did it on the Super Duke, and a charlie had to fly down from Joeys just to do it to his bike in CT. Nie lekker nie. And heck, the carbs work great!

Having said all that... I wouldnt mind one to see the difference in power delivery and well.... thats the true extent of the real changes.  :D

LITO, Berto was talking about the 990 landing in SA.
Chicanes will have them on the floor soon.
