650 vs 400 suspension

I'm thinking of selling my 2006 650 and buying a 2011 400. Does anyone have any experience with both machines and can comment on the suspension differences?
Thanks, Bill

Transmissions are very different on a fundamental level.. The 650's CVT runs a gear assembly to drive the rear tire while the 400 has a more conventional (replaceable) belt for final drive.. While the 650 CVT is more polished it is also carries higher maintenance costs.. I think the 400 makes a better 'city' bike and the 650 makes a better 'touring' bike..
