I've ridden both.
675 is pretty extreme sports, whereas 955 is much more relaxed and better suited for touring and stuff. It's just up to your preferences, but I for one, found the 675 too extreme for road use
I have both a S4 and a D675 in the garage and I don't think the 675 is that extreme, thought the S4 feels like a couch after a day's ride on the Daytona. I always thought the 955 had pretty aggressive ergos for a "hyper-sport tourer. I don't think I would want to go on an all day ride on my 675 but I have done 700 mile days on the S4 and by the end its no picnic and I have to believe the ergos are less extreme on the S4 than the 955
I don't think the D675 (just bought one) is all that more aggressive than the 955, but based on my S3, you will notice a difference in power delivery. Personally, I like the 1050 triple's low end grunt. However, the D675 is very agile and effortless to ride.
Had an S4 ridden a 675 and now have a 955, out of the three the most uncomfortable was the 675, and that was not too bad, I got used to the S4 and found it ok for 400miles+ but did end up with painfull knees and butt, the 955 is ok for more, the most I have done in a day on the 955 is 590miles and was ok but need a gel seat. I am 6ft 2inches and about 15 stone. :-D
