    All R1150xx have 6 speed transmission?

    I should know the answer to this, and I searched as well, but the search didn't like the #6 for some reason so I will ask. Do all R1150xx models have a 6 speed? That was 1 of the differences from the R1100 I believe, but I am not positive. Am on the hunt for the next bike and want to have as much info going in as possible. Thanks for the help....,

    Correct.
    One of the differences in the 1100 vs 1150's is the gearbox, 1150's have 6 gears.

    tall vs. less tall

    But apparently some have a taller sixth gear than others. Mine has the tall top gear - the jump from 5th to 6th is big enough that when cruising at 60 or so in fifth gear, I want to upshift, but then after I do, I need to get up to at least 65 in sixth gear to feel like I'm not lugging the engine. All in all I like the tall gear, but I kind of wish there was another gear between 5th and 6th.
