My local dealer doesn’t have any RS for me to test ride, so I flew to Las Vegas and rented a 2017 from Euro Cycles. Spent today and will spend most of tomorrow running the bike around Lake Mead National Recreation Area and Valley of Fire State Park. So far pretty impressed with the bike. Wonderful torque and acceleration. First gear is not all that impressive because the rpm’s max out pretty quickly. But powering through 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th is a blast. Much better acceleration than my R9T, and my F800GT isn’t even in the same zip code (literally). The gear box / shifting is downright clunky compared to the smooth shifting of the R9T. Hopefully that is just this particular bike. The windscreen, as has been discussed to death, is pretty lame. When I raise it the wind noise/buffeting is horrendous, so I’ve been riding around with it in the lower position. No worries about this being too top heavy (my experience with an RT). Goes into curves really well. The suspension is wonderful in Road mode. Tomorrow will be running in Dynamic. They put new tires on the bike so I took it a little easy starting out this morning.
