Talking 990R throttle seems funny

Hey guys, i just got my 990 and it is wonderful compared to the 910 i have tried for a week.

The throttle, acceleration, is as smooth as my butt (kidding). Compared to 910, it is not too torquey. i can really use one hand on the 1st gear as mentioned on the review in MCN.

However, need to ask you Brutale experts on this:

Is it normal to travel 80-90km/hr with the rev at 4000rpm? i hit 100 to 110km/hr at 5000rpm which i find is pretty high.

Comments guys?

Your RPM range is normal for cruising and travel.

The brut's are geared lower that what I'm used to as well. I thought weird at first and now I'm used to it. 2nd 3rd and 4th almost seem like the same gear i rip thru them so quickly.
