919 ~ K1200RS

After putting about 600 miles on the RS, both in rain and dry. I have a few comparesons. Yes they are different type bikes, but, listen up before you start the flames.
The performance is very close, both straight line and passing cars at speed. [email protected]
Gas mileage, so very close with the slippery RS getting 51mpg on the super slab at 75mph.
Fast sweepers, RS hands down, super stable and no jerks or wobbles if you hit a heat riser in the middle of a curve.
Flicking on small rural roads, 919 has the edge.
Slow riding in neighborhoods or really rough roads, the 919 is smooth and quiet, the RS is rough and noisey, the paralever is clunky and noisey, and sounds like it's coming loose, but, it ain't.
Clutch, no way to compare with the 919. the RS's dry clutch sounds like the screws are falling out of the pressure plate.
The RS shines if you want to go get a hamburger and drink in the next state and return before you mow the yard.
The 919 is best if you only have 2 hrs to ride and you make best use of time.
The 919 is maintance free, the RS has too many gadgets on board and too much labor to do simple up-keep.
Sorry Dian, No way can I sale either one.
