I had an Aubergine 620 for several years; it is a fantastic bike and one of my favorite past-owned bikes. It's "limitation" to me was that it's a single, because of the to/from ride distance to the places I like to ride and lacking as even a weekend sport touring mount (doable, but tiring). I sold it and bought a 950SM in 2006. While there are some aspects of the Duke I sort of miss, the 950 is close enough to the single benefits with a lot of twin upside.

Pricing seem to be in the right ballpark-- 620 Duke pricing has been pretty constant for the past 10 years, and 950SM depreciation has generally been heavy.

the 950 has had at least 1 important tech bulletin that should be done- the starter limiter (aka the klacker), there are possibly others I've forgotten. There's an ownership thread in Road Warriors (where this thread should be anyway) at that has everything you'd want to know about the 950SM.
