Cheers, nice scoot with a ruck of extras but it needs to be an R, in black.

GLWS :)

Just my pennies worth in here.

The SDR doesn't offer anything more than a standard 990 really. Just an orange frame. All the hype and bollox written about more BHP/performance etc is totally spurious when analysed against the age/mileage/conditions/care that has been taken on one of these bikes. Give me a good, high mileage, well set up, well modded 2006 990 against a barely used 2009 SRD if the former was well loved and expertly cared for and the latter a multi-owner, rarely ridden, badly set up Sunday ride out.

There are plenty of well set up and tuned 990s with great torque and HP figures showing on the dyno.

There are plenty of SDR bikes showing lower torque and HP figures.

If you're bothered about either track times or public-road speeds the difference will be far more apparent dependent of how good a rider you are, not to do with whether you ride a 990 or an SDR.

Don't believe the Hype.

A good SD is better than an average SDR

Cheers for the input, I'm under no illusion the difference in performance won't be night and day and I'm quite happy setting one up (with the help of a couple of mates). I just want a decent starting point and to me it looks like this vvv so that's what I want.

Hi Jon (?) I may be selling mine, it's an 09 full fat model. I have an 06 sd too, it's not day and night difference but you can definitely tell it's the "r" version. Just had a full service ( big one) with all the fluids changed.
A few sensible extras and under 6000 miles.
My number is 07954590055 if you want any pictures,
