I'm 45 yrs old with 2 bad knees & a bad back. Back in the early 2000's I did a lot of track days on my Honda CBR 954RR, but I can't ride the super sports anymore. The RS is a great alternative. Feels light & nimble, tons of power, handles well, comfortable upright riding position & looks sharp. Good for trips around the city, commuting, mountain twisties or touring. All around great bike. I have owned several bikes over the years & I researched a lot before deciding on the RS. I am happy with my 2019 & will keep it for years to come.
