The RT's re-tuned, Rotax-built, 60-degree 998cc V-Twin produces a claimed output of 100 hp and 80 ft.-lbs. of torque, vs. the 106 hp/77 ft.-lbs. of the RS. Further, the electronic throttle control is optimized for touring riding with a kinder, gentler response to go along with the increased bottom-end power. A manual five-speed gearbox is standard, or choose to go with the semi-auto, push-button-shift setup that eliminates manual clutch work. Claimed dry weight is 929 lbs. for the RT, 699 lbs. for the RS.
