Welcome Mac,the price is around 50% more than yours,the insurance group is around 14 from your 9:shock:,the take off speed will be quicker but where can you do 150mph when yours is around 115mph?

If your loaded have both bikes.

The two bikes offer completely different riding experiences and and I would look at as changing you bike for something different rather than an 'upgrade'.  Try your mates bike and if you like it  and get on with it then have it.
