    That's what roughly 230kg wet seems heavy for the power.

    The previous models were heavy too, 205kg dry so they're shaved some weight despite adding watercooling/abs/cats etc.

    Steel frame vs alloy on the street/speed triple, twin shocks, big 900cc engine.

    Shouldn't make much difference, they aren't ultimate performance bikes, more something to blat around on, on a sunny day at normal speeds :D
