The remarkable thing is how similar an 851/888 feels to a 748. I sold my 851 to get a 748 back in the day. In hindsight, it was a dumb move. If you want collectibility cred, get the older bike. If you want to ride, buy a 748 for half price and enjoy.
The SS is a lighter bike that's fun to ride. Superbikes are heavier, harder to ride, more serious...but also more rewarding when you get it right.
