I also think the standard is pretty darn UGLY with the graphics they chose. But the R is S-E-X-Y!
My biggest concern is how much will be "given up" on the street with the 21" front wheel. I was impressed with how telepathic the handling of the standard was.
I rode both, the 1190 R and Standard I liked the feel of the R with the 21" front wheel over the standard. As well I felt a bit cramped on the standard. So I put my money down on the R, now just waiting for it to come in next month.
Theres my 10 cent worth
