4. Cool Factor


Being cool is as subjective as it gets. Your idea of cool may be a stretched and slammed ’Busa with a ridiculously large rear wheel and a $10k paint job, or maybe it’s a 1975 R90/6 with an open-face helmet and smoking a pipe. In my book the RC213V-S is cool for most of the reasons listed in this Top 10: It’s expensive, exclusive, hand-built, valuable, high-performance, inspires desire and jealousy, and it’d definitely boost my personal narcissism (see #2).
