Wife been complaining about comfort on my bikes a while now so I took the plunge today to add my 2010 f4 to my collection of track only bikes and bought a 2015 1090rr on the cheap (10,000€, 250 km...).
For me, the motivation is twofold - 1. i was getting tired of swapping my F4 from road to track each time i wanted to play (or if i just didn't want to use my daytona) and 2. my wife complains waaaay too much when she has to climb on the back of a sportsbike.
picked her up yesterday (BTW, bought with never riding it...only a base 1090 a few months ago).
WTF are you guys talking about...not comfortable??? The seat feels as soft as my couch and of course the upright riding position - should be good for at least 1h trips before discomfort. Compared to the F4 - wow!
Wife went out for a quick ride - she likes a lot...more comfortable, lower, better position.
Only negative right now is the 0.5 second delay between the throttle and the actual acceleration. I also found out that it is a 2012 model (never registered before Friday though)...are there map updates since then that i can make sure they put in at first service?
Well I nearly missed it just wishing Sophia my 910S BRUTALE
