While I'm not a '14 RT owner, and obviously not effected by this issue, I couldn't agree more with ADulay. Its only a bad shock. Were it internal motor, brake or some sort of frame issue I could...

Interesting comment about audio in the helmet. I feel the same and wish I had the option of swapping out the speakers for added storage.

About everything. The new motor is 65% air cooled 35% water cooled. That's why it looks so much like the model it's replacing. It also has a lot more horsepower. 125hp versus 110hp.

I don't think so. The person buying a 1600 is probably after the intense horsepower the 16 offers. In my opinion. RT buyers are typically after the lighter weight.

Nice vid. Wonder if they were accentuating the exhaust note. Sounds a little louder than what is replacing. Not a bad thing, just different.

By large sport touring bike standards, even at 604 lbs, it's a lightweight. I agree that it would have been nice to see it lose, instead of gain, 33lbs.
