950sm or 990sm

Postby twinrider32 » Wed Oct 03, 2012 7:55 pm

Hi All,

I sold my 08 SDR last year and having been wondering what to get ever since :? ( I loved the SDR but it managed to let me down twice in the year,both times when I had snook away with my rucksack packed for a few days riding and it stranded me in rural France.... so I spat my dummy out and fooked it off :x )

Im thinking of a 950sm or 990sm till I decide what to get :)

Has anyone any advice/exp with the 990 versus 950 ?? I guess the fuelling on the 990 wont be as good as the 950 ?

Will the 950 feel a bit guttless after the SDR ? is a good tool or should I just get a Ducati Streetfighter till the new SDR comes out ?

Thanks for any input.

Get 990 SMR if possible, this guy did it after owning 990 SM and seems to be really happy:

Plus 1 on the 990 SMR. A hooligan of the highest order :twisted:
