Sure, but I may want an "R" and $2500 more.

Either would look good in my garage. No wrong answer here.

I got the R because of the red frame
I test rode the RS and the difference in power and delivery is barely noticeable, if at all. The mirrors are way worse on the R though.

Yes, the MSRP difference is $1300. But if the RS is much more in demand (sounds like it), then I suspect an "R" can be had at a much more discounted price, especially in the spring if there's leftover stock. $2500 was a guess only. Sorry for not clarifying.

The otd on the rs is too high right now. There were 3 2016 tuono rr's new leftovers near me that sold for the price of the 765 rs and if you're shopping for a track bike wouldn't you grab the v4? If there's any rs leftovers that triumph discounts sure but for a street bike the r would be my pick if I was shopping the 800 c.c. market. I can't believe the discounts APE and KTM give on their leftovers, I was offered a new 2016 SDR for $13.250 OTD!! it was orange so I bought the SE for $2500 more instead. sorry boys but I can feel the extra 40 ft/lbs on the street.

I am shopping for a track bike...something in the 300-400cc range. Preferably an RC390.

Just because I'm paranoid, it doesn't mean the whole world isn't out to get me.
Words mean things.

My life is not without meaning. I can be held up as a bad example.

not looking for that. The op was talking about the r vs the rs for a street bike and i think the price strategy makes the r a more practical street bike and as sweet as the rs is at that price point there's a lot of bikes that will blow yer hair back on the track. It's part of the process for me to consider value per dollar on expensive purchases and that's why i never buy new but for those that can afford the latest thing and subsequent depreciation when the next best thing comes along.
