I'm thinking of looking at an r1150r rockster this week. Started having doubts after seeing the top post here. Was expecting similar power/weight to my ex650. Was just looking up r1150 specs online. r1150rs, 95hp, 12.2sec drag time, and r1150r, 76hp, 13.35sec drag time. I don't mind giving up a little performance, but that second time is substantially slower than they list for my XJ600, and I have a feeling I'd regret it. Does the 1150 R really have 19 fewer hp than the 1150 RS? Also I'm concerned about handlebar vibration. Some claim the boxers are smooth, some say vibey. What do you think? Is it about how well they're tuned up, and how well the TBs are sync'd? Or is it an inherent thing? I don't want to waste my time and the sellers if this isn't the bike for me. If it has more comfort, and better suspension than the EX650, great. But I don't want more vibration or poor acceleration.
