My vote: yes and yes. Certainly the right trade...and I think Starfighter looks great and will hold its value better too. Maybe I say that because they are not available in the US. I thought the premium was greater. But the 910r will not disappoint either. Good luck...and welcome

HHMMM obviously I am biased, I love the Brutale. But a GSX1400 is a very different beast (heavier, gruntier, comfier etc). The Brutale is pure raw race machine without all the sportbike ergos shortcomings. I would suggest you have a ride. If you want something more brutal and sporty then yes it is the machine. They can even do the occasional tour. Oh and did i mention they were designed by a genius and are a work of art etc etc...
As for the Starfighter it was a design excercise, if that doesn't turn you on, then the R is still sensational. Once you get this idea in your head though it is hard to shake...these machines will hit your emotional nerves like your GSX never will.
Good luck.

If you can,have a demo ride on the Brutale and decide on your own sensations,if not all I can I say to you is:buy it!Stay with R not Starfighter(1800 for a different painting and seat are too much)you can use this money for something else like steering damper and anti slippery clutch.

First - I hope we can welcome you to the club soon!

Second - I'm 6'4", and I don't have any problem with the 910R. The layout is a little different - especially the pegs - so I'd second what everyone else is saying about taking it for a ride first. I'd encourage you to remember that even if you think it's a little idiosyncratic, you'll get used to it and the 910R is worth every cent in terms of what it's like to ride.

When a passenger of the foot moves in sight, tootle the horn trumpet melodiously to him at first. If he still obstacles your passage, tootle him with vigor and express by word of mouth the warning, "Hi, hi."
