Those of you that race your RSV2, what classes do you race in, and how do you feel the bike performs compared to newer platforms?
I'm hitting the track a lot this year, and I'm thinking about potentially prepping for entry racing next season. I love my 07 RSV, but I'm torn on using it or just getting a more generic R6 or something and using that instead. My biggest fears are that in open or super twins, it's just not going to compete with the newer platforms, and in the (likely) event of an eventual get-off, repair and replacement would be more costly and take longer than with something more generic. I don't want to worry about binning it, and because of that be scared to push it and improve myself.
I realize that at the lower levels it's way more about the rider than the bike, and I'm not expecting to be competitive immediately, but I'm really just looking for some experienced voices on how it is using an admittedly older platform to race on.
Thanks in advance!
