I have both. CR out handles the Pin . My Pin will smoke my Cr side by side. The CR will leave the pin in the corners though. Seat height is about the same. The Pin has a more raw motorcycle feel to me. The CR is more comfortable and tame feeling. I have been meaning to sell my Kingpin, but every time I ride it, it puts a big smile on my face. Tough decision for you. For me though, I will be selling the Pin since I like to go on fairly long rides. And the CR definitely outshines the Pin in that arena.
