I've gone from the original SV one, to a late-model Gixxer, to an RC-51, to a Brembo radial 19x20. There's no comparison, the Brembo is hands-down much better, and the RC-51 is a distant second. The bore diameter is a personal preference issue, not a situation where one is inherently "better" than the other. I find that I have better feel and control on trail-braking with the larger diameter bore that requires more lever pressure to stop (this is all relative, "more" pressure than the 19x18 Brembo, it's still 1-finger braking). With the larger bore, it's not that you can't modulate as well, you're just doing it with pressure instead of lever travel. I find that better for me, some other people prefer the longer travel to modulate with. Neither is right or wrong, it's all what you like.
