Personally, I like the looks of the 990 over the 1190. The 1190 just looks...well, like everything else.

FWIW, thought I read somewhere that the Baja is also lower than most versions. Haven't confirmed this.

Of course, there are those that will argue it isn't an 'R' so it isn't worthy. For us mere mortals I'm not sure it matters all that much. Still more bike than I'll ever be a rider. Plus, the white looks better than the 'R'.
Somewhere in the Orange Crush forum I saw a list of suspension travel over the years. The 9x0 bikes have gotten shorter over the years, even the last R model.

I'm kind of partial to the black 9x0s myself
