Here is my RC8R roadside during a Mtn ride yesterday in the 77deg beautiful weather:

Very comfortable sport bike stock, but even more so now. I have Apex 4" risers so lots of room and pretty upright when I want to be. I still have them in tucked clip-on position, but they swivel out to an almost superduke like position too. Also have the higher Puig windscreen (not sure I like the looks as it ruins the angular look, but it is higher than stock).

Have the Ventura luggage rack too for the bike too, just need to develop a reason to use it. Lol

Nice, and glad you had some decent weather for a ride.

Your farkels are exactly what I'd have done.  Thumbsup
Mark, are the mirrors stock? How about the rear blinkers?

No I got rid of the stock mirrors as they only gave you sight of your elbows unless you were in a tuck. Also I needed to so the higher bars would clear (they mount under the windscreen sub-frame).  They are CRG arrows. Much better visibility since they are mounted on the ends of the bars. No vibration either. They look OK, definitely the way to go for a naked, but I have mixed feelings aesthetically on the fully fared bike. Function over form though.

Blinkers are Kellerman LED Micro Rhombus. Expensive, but look good and very bright... form AND function  Bigsmile

Because it doesn't exist without pictures I snapped this today about 10 minutes after I brought it home from the dealer. Then I left to go ride! Smile

Congrats that's a really nice looking bike. It was on my short list before I bought my current bike. You'll really enjoy it.

...a Japanese manufacturer might take the motor, castrate it to about 110 hp and stick it in a cheaper, heavier chassis with low-spec suspension and brakes and slice an ĎRí or two off the name. Thatís not how Aprilia roll
