Having seen both bikes in the flesh I tell you, you wouldn’t even look at the orange paint scheme once you have seen the white one. It’s stunning. But both bikes just ooze quality and style.
To ride despite looking all angular and short the RC8 is actually really roomy. For a tall person like myself (over 6-foot) there is plenty of space to move around the bike. When you ride it the bike feels classy. The suspension has that feel and subtleness that you only get with real quality, it’s very impressive.
