As a Tiger (955i) owner who contemplates an 800XC and 990 as an eventual replacement for my 955i, I encourage you to get the 990, ride them both for a while, and post a comparison review.....
It seem to me that the two bikes are more alike than different, so having both probably won't make sense, but that doesn't mean one won't win out for any number of reasons. I love the look, sound and off-road performance of the 990, so I get what you're saying about the siren's call.... (my words, not yours)....
