Hi guys new here from the S1000R forum.
I am going to test ride an XR next month when my S1R is in getting a replacement coolant tank.
Question is have any of you came from an S1R to the XR and if so how are you liking it in comparison.
Might change mine next year if I like it on the test ride if the finances allow.

I moved from an R to the XR, and don't regret it for a minute. Think of having all that power in a bike that you can ride faster, for longer. :007:

I also came from the S1000R to the XR and feel that the XR is everything I had hoped for in the R plus it is truly touring capable.  I don't think I gave up anything in performance while gaining a whole bunch more in comfort.
