5399,00 EURO in Spain which is exactly the same as "old " 390
Well, that's decent then - the current generation were a lot of value for the price, that trend will continue with the new as well it seems. I definitely do like the new styling but happy I got the lower version for us as we're shorter people.
Weight gain is manageable, but starting from 306lb dry weight and dropping from there is better than starting with an additional 22lb to begin with IMO.
Brake - I'm already running HH pads as many others do and I can purchase an aftermarket 320mm rotor later to make up the balance of the difference. It's on my list - just waiting to find a good deal on a larger rotor.
The biggest improvement, other than the new frame/styling, is the increased fuel capacity I think. Having ridden to 0kms to go on fuel indicator yesterday and then only being able to put in 8 liters, I would definitely appreciate an added 2l of capacity.
