Can feel the power difference, especially at the lower end and the handling is a little lighter, but still a solid ride. TBH both bikes are very close as you would expect, but the little bit more power is nice. Also had a ton of chrome on the 1600 and the black is a joy when it comes to clean and polish time !!!!Welcome and Congratulations! The Storm sure is a looker. How does it compare to your 1600?
