The RT wasn't what I had hoped it to be,, a better version of the 04 1150R, I didn't think it was.. Just not as much fun to ride,,,,,..

Just starting to look for a 1200R or maybe another 1150R,,, would love to hear any comments from owners who have ridden both 1150R and 1200R,, guessing the 1200R is a significant upgrade from the 1150R?

Everyone who's ridden both says so. So much improvement, they say. I cannot confirm it as I have not ridden 1150R, but I can confirm 12R is the best one I've had so far. Feels as light as Ducati GT1000, pulls like it too but fuel delivery, handling and braking are far superior. Plus much comfy riding posture and easy DIY maintenance.
