Well, I think they've got plenty of power. They just keep pulling in the higher gears. Makes the fast sweepers a blast, IMO.
The 1K has a better suspension setup (and more power) but the 650's handle great on the road and are fun to ride, super reliable, and very smooth and efficient.
Depends how much you want to spend. Try riding a 650, I think you'll be surprised.
