Why wouldn't someone buy an RS50 ;)

It was a great first bike for me and still is... Gona move up to the RS125 next year probably if I find some cash :rolleyes:
But I truly value everything what I've learnt while riding/modding this little devil RS50 :D

these things get extremely fun on twistys around your town and you cant ride most bikes balls to the wall all of the time like you can an Rs 50 around town.

Like Micah, I bought my lil' hotrod to race. It took me six months to finally get it prepped because I kept riding it to work instead of my 996. It is a hoot to ride, even more so if you have another bike. More people thought my little bike was the @#%$ than the Duc. Don't kid yourself-it's slow, but if you get to where you are jamming it into corners, then jump on a full size you will be about 400% better rider. Take as you will.

Cause it's fun to drive an underpowered bike to it's max potential then to drive something that was made to go 120 miles per hour at 34 miles per hour.

the last 2 posts hit the nail on the head! my dad's m8s got a 900 ninja, only an old thing, but fast as @#%$! he had a go on mine and came back with a grin from ear to ear. he said that's so much fun, its like racing, but on the street and all in legal speed limets (most of the time) you cant find the limits of super bikes on the road... they're no fun on the road!
