!800c vs 1800r

I got to ride a friends r last week and noticed that it sits much higher and doesn't seem to handle the same as my c. Has anyone else noticed this? I was thinking of selling the c to get an r or n, but I think i'll just make mine a cetro instead.
The differences really suprized me. I always thought the differences were mainly just cosmetic.

are you comparing apples to apples? maybe you and/or your friend has mods for e.g. custom seat

I did not notice any height difference when I sat on a C - bought my R, it just felt too comfortable

I noticed the same thing with rented cars. They always seem to handle much better than the car I own.

Strange.

Maybe his preload on his shocks were set different than yours?

That's what I was wondering. There are some differences to consider: C has smaller tank and lighter than the R. Different bars too.

That can only be 'cos you don't own a MINI.
