    Which bike?..

    Hi all

    So which one to go for....... A really good nick 02 RSVR, or a gen 2 RSVR factory!? Both have loads of extra,

    I am pretty experienced rider, 6 2" in height, and quite fit. Mostly for Sundays and sun y days with the odd tour thrown in........

    Like fast B roads , and medium to fast rider I would say.......


    Appreciate your thoughts and advice.......

    Both great for your requirements my gen2 is the best handling bike I've had for b road attacks once I had it set up well by a local specialist. Would imagine the factory is even better with the ohlins and oz wheels.
    Really down to the looks although the gen 2 does have a bit more bhp.

    I'm 6'2" as well and found the gen 2 a little cramped so stayed with the gen 1 RSVR, easy enough to get the bhp up on a gen 1
