I have a 2013 Baja 990 on the way,what should I expect? I have owned two 950's in the past.

a lighter wallet?

I jumped from an '04 950 to a '10 990... lots of nice refinements on the newer models but overall much the same in terms of the riding experience.

The later model with the R cams is much smoother. It's still a lively beast but nowhere near a bucking bronco!
