Depends - you wanna look at it all day and polish it, get a 998R.

If you wanna ride it, get the 999S!

I was in the same predicament a few months ago, ended up buying the 998R

You say that you once owned a 998R, so you must be spoilt then having all the trick bits that come as standard and the bike having that 'special' feel.
