Well for the roads I ride, goaty, the 1000 has too much torque. If I got a 500 it would be because then I could take my girlfriend on rides.
Currently I can not do that with the 1000s or 600s because my height, or lack there of.
Between the 600 and 1000 the only difference for me is that the 600 isn't a beast-on-a-leash. The 600 is a lot "less" responsive when it comes to power, imo, and for these roads it is much better to be less responsive. I pulled the 1000 up coming out of a hairpin and it scared the ****tles out of me; the 600 would've never done that.
