You might want to do a test ride before buying. Every video I have seen so far shows they are real buzz'e with lots of vibrations in the upper rpm range.

I must admit I was interested but that thing in the video sounds like a lawnmower...:p

Florida dealers don't expect delivery of the RC until March, 2015. Test rides in FL are only a dream. :(

This will be my track bike when time/money permits. Tons of fun and lots of track days without replacing tires, sprockets, brakes, etc. at the same rate as a 600+cc sport bike.

Honestly I think you will regret buying that bike. The only exception is if you were to use it as a track bike. Or does one thing well and one thing only: handling. Where do you need that in south Florida? And why ever would you need something that sacrificed this you might actually use for it?

It would be interesting to take one for a test drive, I will admit that. As for the buzzing lawnmower, that's an easy fix. My Suzuki DR650SE that I fitted a SuperTrapp IDS2 Slip-On Tuneable Exhaust Silencer, is way loader than my 09's stock exhaust. Hmmm, I wonder if SuperTrapp has anything that will fit and 09???? I know, call me crazy. :p
