Nice Ride! I would have been tempted by the white RT if it had been available when I bought my '15 RT, which is surprising as I have never been fond of white bikes before.
For sure the relation to previous RTs are tenuous at best, maybe related only by model designation, being a flat twin, and a couple of shared chassis features.
My '71/5 has more in common with my '99 RT than my '99 has with my '15 RT. This redesign really broke away from most technical ties to all previous RTs
And it rides like a different animal for sure
BMW did a great job bringing the new RT into current design and performance standards and while I still love certain aspects of my old RT I really love this RT! . To me it is more Japanese like and I mean that in a good way. The waterhead RT just simply works well.
