    I really was thinking more about the riding characteristics. It never occurred to me that the beak, the size of the beak ...or the lack thereof was a big deal. But I guess it is.

    I'll do some comparing on my own I guess on rake angles, wheel bases and suspension travel to see if it gives any clues. As it stands right now, without any of that data, the biggest difference I see in the NC700S and the CTX700N (besides cosmetics) seems to be where the foot pegs are located and the seat comfort.

    As someone who is short, I would undoubtedly lower a NC700X. That puts it in the same grouping as the NC700S and CTX700. So I've just been wondering, what if...

    You're right, I just found out the same information QUOTE: “Those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” — Bernard Baruch

    Still like the "unnofficial quote", so I'll just remove the Dr. Seuss thing..

    I like the S better than the X for the following reasons:
    - Looks better to me
    - Doesn't have the pointy beak of the X
    - Better riding comfort for myself
    - Better handling
    - Has ABS
    I had the option of buying the NC from the US, where it is 2-3k cheaper than in Canada. But only the X is available there. So despite the higher price I bought the SA.

    The issue I would have with the S is no option for a frame mounted windshield.
