I can understand using the RS on track, it has track pretensions after all, all the marketing guff told us so. Those tyres are track ready and itís definitely tuned for track work, the quick shifter makes life easier on the back straights... Iíll take mine on track one day... but as a track bike itís deeply flawed imho. The riding position is far too neutral and upright, itís like the bike is ready but has forgotten that it needs to accommodate a rider at track speeds.... it can be cured by clip ons, rear sets and a fairing... or you could wait until the Daytona 765RS is released... or just buy a sportsbike for the track... itís the one thing that I think doesnít make sense with the RS.... oh look itís track ready... well actually, no itís not...
