Dont disregard the 900 or 1000DS bikes.They are just as good as the S2R.In fact,if you have big feet like me,you may not like the 'R'.I found my right foot was at a crazy angle to avoid the high level exhaust and my left foot rubbed on the swingarm.Very offputting.
I borrowed a 1000DS from Italia Moto and fell in love with it.The motor was a peach and the handling superb.The 900's have a differant frame,based on the 888,and the handling is best described as,.....erm,.....'loose'!
Just my 2p worth.
