The 848 looks like it is leaning forward so much. I'd like to see someone on the bike to get an idea of what the riding position is like.
Sitting on both the difference will be noticeable. Got to love that the 899 has a more up-right seating position. Being comfortable as you can is key.
Man that evo looks so much better but it's like they said earlier you want the comfort especially if you ride everyday like myself but i'mstill debatting wether to get the 848 evo new or 899 new
I am expecting the 899 Evo (or whatever they gonna call it) having the same improvements for the torque range as they managed to give the 1299...After a year with the 899 i wont be getting a 1199/1299 as my next bike,it will be a 1098 for me,the 899 looks great from ever angle but its biggest let down is its lack of low end grunt,if i had my time over again i would have got a 848 evo,not saying the 899 is a bad bike,its just lacking in areas you have to ride the thing hard to get the most out of it,the 848 just pulls from low down and is easier to ride fast.
