The second link down from the top has a lovely ring to it, brought a grin to my face , Sooo good that I felt the urge to play it again.

I thought the 1098S had black or dark blue alloy end cans I'm sure the "S" doesn't have Termis as standard, only the Tricolore.

I'm 6' 2" and I can't wait to find out.

What superbikes ain't cramped? Pretty much hunched over on most even Rice Burners.
I suppose when thinking of buying any superbike, its varying degrees of discomfort which need to be considered. If I wanted a comfy bike I wouldnt opt for a superbike, I would have kept my Numptystrada or bought tourer / cruiser.

749 comfy... Mmm. Never ridden a 749.

The DSC members I've seen on 749's still look hunched over, whether they're comfy or not I don't know.
I've ridden a T9 when I was going to buy a 999S, lovely bike bike but as expected I was hunched over and quite a reach to the bars, not a problem for me but riders of shorter stature may struggle to reach the bars.

Nice. The removable baffles is an excellent idea.
