Nice review, doesn't look to be anywhere as nimble as the 390 version, that will U-turn almost in a single lane whereas the 790 didn't look to be able to even turn in a full width of the road?

It's not that bad. There is always a trade-off in agility between power and size.
I thought this was spot on.
The 390 is great but just not enough oomph for anything other than a small trip.
The 790 is just this side of making overtaking safer.

I've not ridden the 790 so can't really comment on it, but the 390 can do longer trips, I rode mine from West Sussex up to Chester, and then into north Wales and back over a couple of days, was awesome! :)
I get what you are saying regarding the overtaking, although I don't have any issues overtaking on mine unless I was already going illegal speeds, which it'll do 100mph, which is license losing stuff! :)
