Questions about 599?

We are looking at bikes for my wife and the 599 is in the running. I know a few of you on here own the 599 and a few of you own both a 599 and 919. Looking to see if you could all share some incite on the 599.

For those of you that own both is the seat height the same as the 9er? How about the weight? Weight shows to be lighter by specs haven't looked at seat height.

How does it compare power wise? to the 9er. does it have the ability to lug like the 9er or is it 2 stroke like power of some 600cc machines.

anything to look for when looking at one?

IS the seat the same better or worse than the 9ers?

with me having a hundred or so pounds on my wife already will she smoke me on the 9er with a 599?

Common sense. So rare it's a god damn super power.

My wife has a 599, her first bike and LOVES it!! Seat height same but shocks are different so my 919 sits more rigid the her 599! Power is good but not near the grunt of the 919, much more pitchy than the 919 yet VERY manageable! My wife has not had seat issues like I did so I'm guessing it's better or she just more tolerant? Our biggest complaint about the 599 would be the lack of options for lowering it!


Some people live and learn and some just live!
