There are many things wrong with a 990. It is not as comfy as a GS, weather protection sucks, they have several but fixable mechanical issues, even a oil change is a big job, not tubeless, vibrates...

If possible, ride both. They feel very different. I prefer the heavier, more stable and better protected GSA.

I assume you are talking about the rider that got killed at the launch in South Africa? It was a reporter with many, many years of experience, and on a GS, not GSA. We are still waiting on official...

The GSA is built like a tank. Off-road you just need to show her who's boss. As soon as you start to pussyfoot her, everything goes tits up. Thumpers go over things. GSA's go through them.

I have a Akrapovic full free flow titanium twin can system on the GSA. I LOVE the sound, deep and throaty, but still a lot less loud than my dad's Low Rider.
