The 1000RR puts the power down much better. The ride seems smoother. The transmission is waaaay better than the 954/929. I like the hydraulic clutch. The radial braks are much better. I think the fit & finish is better. I don't even notice the HESD, which is a good thing. The bike is very stable.Mark9738377 said:Is the 1000RR better than the 954? and why? in turning? and how good is that HESD?
