Yes, it was for me. I wanted to compare to the 749r while it was still fresh in my mind. Made sure I name dropped you Bradders
999r felt much faster, so much so that "it was all over in a few seconds" (stop s******ing at the back) and it felt like there was very little use for all that power on the road. Steering was slower than the 749r, although I guess the 999 could easily be raised at the back to help? Carbon fairings on the 999r were a bonus for bling fans like me
The differential between the 749r and 999r in terms of price is small compared to that of the 748r and 998r (ok, maybe not directly comparable given model years etc) so the 999 seems a lot of bike?
