I'm sure the latest SDR is amazing. Right now I'm in love with the 890 and the 890 will always be 60-80lbs lighter than the SDR. SDR is a beast for sure and I hear they have improved the chassis and gearing as well as added a quickshifter. I may pick up one in a couple years if I get tired of my 890. Right now, I'm appreciating the dirt bike on steroids feel of it--so narrow and light feeling but with plenty of power and a suspension that takes what you throw at it.
