1200r or streetfighter s

I owned a streetfighter s 5 years ago.
Iím now looking at getting a 1200r.
The only things I really remember about the streetfighter is that it was awesome apart from you very much sat on top of it.
Iím on the fence of which one looks the best but to be honest I think the Montser looks the best .
Has anyone on here recently written them both or owned them both?

Yes, probably the best bike Iíve ever rode.
When I first pulled out I was kind of disappointed by how easy it was to ride. Then got on a open bit of road and gave it some, and thatís when it becomes a proper monster!
Defiantly a jack of all trades bike, but is master of everything!

The StreetFighter S ( 1098 mill ) Might be a little too 'Camy' for many.

For those thinking of getting a M1200R this year : personally, i'd wait for the next EICMA in November (2018) since there's got to be a new R announced - most thought that it was going to be shown at the previous one but...

Think of it this way : The 1200 and 1200S got a new model/restyle and so did the 821, the R is most definitely next since, well, it's the only liquid-cooled monster that hasn't received the restyle/improvements yet.

Expect a couple more ponies, cornering ABS, new headlight + tank and (maybe) a shorter wheelbase (like the latest 1200 + 821).
