I recently purchased a '16 R as I was so pleased with all aspects of the '19 R I bought late last year.

I made a mistaken assumption that the suspension would be similar! Having now ridden both back to back I feel the '16 R suspension to be pretty poor in comparison to the 765R it is not very compliant and is certainly a lot less comfortable over bumps, in fact, had I ridden one first, I doubt I would have bought it :003: a real shame as everything else about the 675 is fine but I'm loath to start spending a fair bit of money to bring the suspension up to the 765R standard which, in my opinion is excellent! :002:

Yeh I had a 19 765r but that got written off so I bought a 16 plate probably in bit of a rush as it was a good price not realising it was the standard one. I have bought this though instead of financing a bike so will do my best to upgrade the suspension as best and cheap as I can.

Is it me or does the guy in Moto2's photo look like Moss from the IT Crowd? Zoom in on the glasses  :038:

Dunno about the telly worker likeness but the elbow down looks cool.
