Ask if the dealer will put the Dark stuff on the Silver/black bike. What could it hurt. Best of both worlds.
+1. get the 1000, i did!kentamcolin said:If cost is not an issue, then it's a no brainer IMO - get the 1000. You'll not regret getting the more powerful bike.
My SS1000 did 87 at the crank with slip-ons and no other mods.YellowDuck said:Nah, they claim 91 hp at the crank for the Sport Classic 1000, 95 at the crank (I think) for the S2R1000, same as the SS1000. That seems to be about 85 to 87 hp at the wheel, depending whose dyno numbers you go by. 79 hp sounds more like the old 900 motor.
