If you live and ride where the roads are straight, yeah probably. Capable, entertaining, lovable……yes. It’s all those. If you live and ride where it’s twisty(er), want comfort, light weight, and a serious sleeper on those twisty roads…no, it not “too tame.” I moved from a Ducati 1200S Pikes Peak (which I loved) to the F900XR recently due to some hip/health problems. I miss that raw Italian power outright sexiness. The F900XR has it beat most everywhere else. I love them both equally. Look up my write up on my Muliti vs my 900XR. More detailed than this and I tried to make it an entertaining read.
