Having previously owned a 2007 hexhead RT from new until earlier this year, my transition to oilheads has been fairly recent and quite pleasant. As documented comparo specs reveal, oilheads have more heft while sporting less power yet appeal to me greatly. In my few weeks of R1150RT ownership, I'm enjoying making it my own just as with other motos before. This RT will be a keeper!

Nice, nice, nice.
