Arrow Anyone gone from a 749S to a 999S?

I'm on the fence about which model exactly. Because I've always owned big liter sportbikes, and my last was a Duc 1198SP, I'm worried the 749S won't fill the bill. Wondering if anyone here was a former owner of a 749S who moved up to a 999S. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks.

Never owned a 749s but after a back to back ride I chose the 999s over the smaller. Torque and Olin’s made the difference.

why would you go from an 1198 sp to ancient technology?

yes, going from an 1198 sp to a bike with nearly half the hp, zero rider aids, showa suspension, axial brakes, cast wheels. I guarantee you will be disappointed.

The answer to the OP is in his signature. And how can you guarantee that HE'D be disappointed?

Rode both and bought 749s. the smaller displacement allows to explore the upper limits of the bike without scaring the crap out of yourself. ( well for me anyway )
