08 910r to dragster?

Hi, I'm just in the process of trading my 08 910r for a dragster.
I can pick up the standard dragster at a good price but i cant look past paying the extra for the dragster rr.I think extra 20hp and quick shifter would be worth it.
has anyone gone from a 910r to a dragster? how do they compare? would i regret not getting the RR?
any advice appreciated, cheers

My feeling is if you can afford the RR, get it - you will always think you should have

I rode a standard Dragster 800 and didn't really jell with it. The seating position felt fixed in one place. But just IMHO

I don't think there was an issue with fuelling.. Pretty smooth. I just remember that I didn't like the seating position and it didn't have the raw power feel that the 910R had. My feeling is the dragster is a 'God I love the look of the thing' type of bike. You either have to have it or you don't.

I like the B4

I'm with "greminn" on this one, the Dragster to me is pretty cool looking, but I couldn't stand riding it, probably down to my long legs and I move around a lot on the bike.
If you want a triple, try the Brutale 800 instead, a dream bike and surprisingly pillion friendly, something I'd not say about the Dragster.

Whangarei,no havent ridden one yet, but i never rode the 910r before i bought it, I remember reading articles about the 910 before i got it saying it is only a sunday scratcher and not for long trips but i went to the south island on it and it was awesome.

If you can push the extra cash I'd definitely go for the RR. Some say it's a little slower on the turn in with that big back tyre but can't say I've noticed anything compared to my Street triple. As Donsy says though if you're ever thinking about taking a passenger then stay well clear of the Dragster, there's just about enough room for my 12 year old daughter and there's nothing of her.
I'd never ridden any MV nevermind the Dragster before I bought it, it's as has been said you love the look of the bike and must have it. I don't know how tall Donsy is but I'm around 5'9/10ish and it's the perfect size bike for me.
The power is fantastic, the sound is glorious and the quickshifter just adds to the fun. I think it's actually lighter than my old Street 675 was so that I think makes it easier to throw around and balances out having the big back tyre. If you love it buy it, if it's not an insta wow bike then maybe get the Brutale RR.

I have been thinking of some other bikes bmw s1000r, v4 tuono. but the bmw a bit to bland looking and there are lots of tuonos around and i love the look of the dragster rr and i think 140hp should be a bit of fun in a light bike like the dragster
