My point had nothing to do with break in, etc. If you know you will want the additional power, go for it right away. I have the 1600 and rode the 1700. The 1700 is impressive indeed. Would I actually use the additional power after paying for it? Probably not, except to show off. My 1600 has never put me in a situation where I felt I really needed additional power, so why pay for it? For me, it's not worth it. For you it may be a necessity.
