I've had a 2013 MTS 1200, a 2015 (I think) MTS 1200 Enduro, and now a 2017 MTS 950. Put lots of kilometres on each. I loved them all, but I love the 950 the best.
Yup, it likes to rev more than the 1200's. It needs to as well, since it has 250cc less to work with. But I find that it is in its happy place when the motor spins up. Where I could loaf along all day at 4,000 rpm in upper gears on the 1200's, the 950 prefers closer to 5,000. But the motor is perfectly happy doing that. And it is so rewarding when you work it hard through corners!
