After a couple of years with my 690r enduro I have become a fan of light weight. After I sold my RC51 I was looking for a big but light v-twin and the supermoto r fit the bill. The hypermotard is a little lighter but has a less powerful air cooled engine. I chose the r over the t because I did not need a touring bike and preferred the slightly more hooligan r. No regrets. The Supermoto R is a hoot! If it was going to be my commuter bike or for trips then it would be the t model.
