Brutale what model to buy

Hi,
long time guest first time registered. Question?
What model to buy 910 , 989 or dig deep and go 990
This will be a keeper as I am almost 60 and get as much
enjoyment riding as I did at 16 , who said old people are
boring!!!!

It depends how agressive a rider you are. For outright performance it is clearly the 910R. However, the 910R has a somewhat hyper personality. It wants to be ridden hard. The harder you ride it, the better the bike feels. Also suspension wise. It feels good when you ride very agressively but at less than that it can feel a little harsh. Overall, I enjoy my 910R more than I could have imagined and it gets ridden more than probably all my other bikes combined (thats 15+ bikes).

The 990 is a better and certainly more refined motorcycle for the lintermediate/ess than expert level rider. All the inputs get a smoother response and the delivery is a bit more relaxed. It would certainly be a better in town/commuter bike than the 910.

It's like the 910R is a triple espresso, no cream or sugar at 10pm, and the 990 is a Cafe Latte at 2pm.

I haven't ridden a 989, but reading the specs I would expect it to be more like a un-refined 990. I personally wouldn't consider that bike.
