And for road use the 21 inch front wheel may compromise handling a little compared to the 19 inch wheel on the standard model.

The suspension on the R has much more adjustability than the standard bike (but you do need to get spanners/screwdrivers out to so it)

I think it might be down to a toss of a coin ..................
My thoughts are that even the Adventure R will be better on the road than my 990 ADV. But with more power. Much more power. That for me is enough to sign off on a 'R'.
