I've traded up from a 749 to a 910S after I decided I wanted something more road focused (i.e. comfortable for longer!). I've had it for three weeks so still early days, but already it's an attention magnet. Very abrupt throttle takes some getting used to and low speed stuff can be a little tricky, but other than that, it'a one hell of a road bike. Yes, the suspension is on the hard side, but the gearbox snicks through smoothly, steering is precise and light, brakes are ok rather than amazing (though going back to a four from a v-twin might also have something to do with that). I'm lucky enough to have this as a plaything with the odd commute thrown in. I tried a CB1000R before the MV and was very tempted by the Honda. Even though the two bikes set out to be similar, they are chalk and cheese in terms of character - hence why i spent the extra on the 910S, and I'm thoroughly glad that I did. I'm also a bit of a short-arse so the dinky dimesions suit me!
