Monster S2R and S4R differences?

I'm entertaining the idea of getting one for commuting and a better all around bike. Can someone tell me what the main differences are between the two? If not those two, I may look into getting a Brutale. Comments and suggestions welcome on any of those models. Thanks!

S2R - think old school:
2 valve
dry clutch
oil cooled

S4R - latest and greatest:
4 valve
wet clutch
radiator (keep it filled with Bourbon for max cooling effieciency)

Personally I'm all over the S2R. It's just what the monster is supposed to be. That radiator looks silly sticking out beyond the limits of the bike (there I said it!). You want all that extra, get a superbike.

last time I looked the S4R has a dry clutch!
Oh, dear...now I've done it.
Hand me the rolled up newspaper so I can beat myself into a less embarassed state.
