RSV4-R - Factory on a budget - September 29, 2009, 02:53 PM

Have a launch video:

This bike looks like the smart buy, close but not quite the Factory - but for lot less $$$.

Where does the R differ versus the Factory?

here are the changes:

I would love to have one but it just seems like "so much bike" to me. I feel like one would be completely wasted under my ass. For 15k though it's damn tempting.

BTW - when are these coming to the states?

Not in love with the stock exhaust, but that's one sexy tail

Aside from looks, what exactly makes it similar to factory R? It doesn't even have Ohlins suspension, or case covers, or rearsets, or better brakes, which I presume factory does.

I dig the looks...

Pretty sure rv1000r had ohlins front and sachs in the rear. factory r gave you ohlins rear and some other goods.

I spoke to the North America Technical rep about the bike at ViR and sat on the one he had.. TINY TINY TINY feeling motorcycle with very comfortable ergos, at least for a 6'2" person.. Might be cramped in a full tuck though.. Sounds absolutely wicked to boot.. He said it should be priced around the 1198 or just a bit below which makes sense.
