The purpose is to try something different. It's for experimental testing. It is a pursuit bike, why not make it fully pursuit. I like the forward geo on it with the 650. It makes you get up on the bike and transfer more power down and along with the clipless, it feels great. Whenever I get bored with the 650, I can easily change it back to the 700. So far It's a fun ride.
