I got rid of your other thread because one is enough, and posting the same thread over and over is, in a word, irritating.
To answer your question, performance wise I doubt there is really much of a difference. None you'll be able to detect anyway, unless you are a very good rider and taking it to the track on a regular basis. With that said, it really comes down to comfort and aesthetics, in that order. Which bike fits you best? If it's a toss-up, then go for whichever one you think looks better. You can also look into which has bigger/better aftermarket goodies if you're into modding it. "Which bike" is such an individual thing that nobody can tell you which is "better." All they can tell you is what they think....which may or may not be the same as what you think.
Get the one that you want, not the one someone else wants. Both are excellent bikes, I'm sure.
The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all of fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomanical, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. - Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion
