I loved it, very versatile and comfortable, yet super fun to throw around on backroads. Never had a problem with it as well in 11000 miles. That said, it was a lacking a bit of power compared to my other bikes. Both my Vit 701 and my FTR1200 are remarkably faster.

Lasted only three weeks/1000 kms... (and I nearly killed myself on it, still have a scar in my neck)

It was a fantastic, very demanding AND rewarding bike.

But let's not get romantic, a Vitpilen 701 would totally beat its ass, really. The RS250 had to be kept in the 2000 rpm wide powerband else "buuuuuuuhhhhhhhhh" but nothing happened.
