I went orange last year
so my wife and son are riding Duke 125's both as learners
I purchased a 390 to ride with them and loved it so much I swapped my used one for a new 2018 model a few months ago, will pass to my son when he gets to 19.
Wanted to try a big single went for the 690 and did not like it so swapped for a 790 which I love to bits.
wanted a 1290r but went to test ride and as I take pillion riders I compromised and went for the 1290GT still not sure I made the right choice, I do love the R but as far as I am concerned it is not safe for pillion
