Here's the latest on the Downtown, straight from Kymco: "They are on the water and should start hitting dealer's showroom floors by late September."

Not much to dislike about the RT.
I was set on an RT before I bought my K RS, just didnt have the knee room on the RT at the time though. Was tight against the fairing in jeans, my stich wouldnt of fit.

I noticed that as well but I was geared up when I tried it. I felt it was still doable but the K-GT definitely had more room.

I'm happy with the results too. I might switch a 1st and a Mention, but overall nothing to complain about.

How do I put this?

A bike that is 800+ pounds with a hard fairing, stereo, cruise, heated grips and seat, with luggage to store stuff for a month is a tourer.

The Victory Cross Country you hit spot on with the description. Isn't it in the wrong catagory? See the pic of the Rocket 3. Ummm, no stereo etc.

jus sayin is all
