    Just back from Cartagena 3 days of going round and round in the sun 19c.
    What a bike I went 5 seconds a lap faster than on my Daytona 675r two years ago, handled like a dream not one moment and at times pushed a bit hard, had the bike set in custom map so basically everything turned off I need to look at other options as it liked to wheelie a bit to easy. The brakes m50 brembo are awesome and a nice feel once you find the right setting on the adjustable master cylinder.

    I have fitted a rapid quickshifter/down blipper my god banging it down the gears is brilliant and the noise from the mhp exhaust with decatted headers

    Roll on a couple of days in the uk in the summer then on to portimao in October.

    Awesome stuff :green:

    I'm gutted to be honest i never took mine on track, the brakes are way better than the M4's on the daytona aren't they.

    How did you find the wind? One of the main reasons i sold mine really, worst bike i've ridden for wind buffeting, noticeably worse than my 2014 street r i'd have said.

    The brakes are some of the best I have used.
    The wind was fine but the weather was very calm, the race nose cone give a good screen and Cartagena there’s only one straight.


    You say the worst bike for wind blast is that because it’s that much faster than the 675? I have ridden 1000cc naked bikes now we are talking wind blast tuono v4 s1000r etc

    I thought it was worse than the S1000R i rode, yeah the 675 is much slower but i still saw 130+ quite a bit and it never seemed to hit me as much as it did on the RS.

    Wicked bikes though :cool:

    I would love to give it a go but at the moment theres not a class for these to go in as a rookie other than 1000cc rookies and theres some quick guys in that. Shame I am the wrong side of 50 so for the moment it will just have to be trackdays but I wont say never.
     
  11. They’ve been using your bike as a promo picture for the nolimits 765RS cup! Haha

    I no the figures and it’s a bit more than the figures you mentioned it’s double figures with the race kit fitted.
    I bought mine as a road bike with 0 miles at a very good price from my local dealer, I paid what people have there’s advertised for on eBay with 2000 miles on them
