Alot. I was feeling desperate for a change to a R-roadster and thought the same, R1150R is a good compromise.
Glad I waited.
The 115o is a grreat bike, but the R1200 is a handlin' mofo, with alot more power on tap. Just a complete newer gen bike than the previous.
I just saw one on CL in CA asking $7800 with lotsa farkles and 24K.
If you can spare the hussle the extra, it's well worth it.
But the 1150R is a fine momo.
