You could also find a good used R6 and we can close down cylinder 3 and run it reduced HP I believe Tryg WESTBY did this to run a lower displacement class some years ago.

Hmm that's not a bad idea!  While we are thinking outside the box, could we just add another cylinder to the R3?   :confused:

:D

We both rode RS660s at South yesterday and wow!  It's hard to imagine that a mid-sized twin could be any better than that.  But man, $12K+suspension+bodywork (times two hehe) is a lot of money for bikes we're just going to crash anyway.

Tangentially, thanks to Zach for putting the airfence out at the Aprilia Day yesterday!  I'm not sure they were going to use it until he insisted.

First, Zach is the man!!

Second, you only need one RS660 for Karen. You can ride the R3, or the two other SVs you have. And crashing is not a requirement…. LOL

Haha sorry, that joke probably doesn't work without some context!  I didn't much enjoy the session on the R3 so riding it permanently would feel like punishment.  It's a wet noodle with a lawn mower engine attached!

I know you can learn a lot on those little bikes but the SV is way more fun (for me anyway).
