I have no doubt that the new bike will be better than the old one it replaces.
They nearly always get better. All the riders who want 990s have bought them already. Time to keep up, with an upgrade. This is it. When the reviews come out, it will blow everything else away. Have faith. It happens every year with all brands of bikes. Imagine if all we had to ride for dirt bikes was XL350s. Compare against a 450X or 300XC-W. I rode a pristine older FJR last year. What a shocker. Couldn't wait to give it back and get back onto my GS12. Loved my 950 Adv S before that too. The 1190 is going to be an awesome machine. They've had years to perfect it on the 990 platform.
