I sat on the 390 at the NEC bike show on Thursday - it's very small. I'm 5'10" and felt that I'd be too cramped for anything other than short trips. The 690 is significantly more roomy and is a better fit for me. I used to own a Superduke R so a 690 might be on the cards in the future as a second runabout.
