Oh man what have i done
Techno i suggest you go ahead with the RTR Fi provided it's not your primary mode of transportation. As a second bike or as a secondary means of transportation (means if you don't use it 7 days a week) it is more than capable to deliver the goods and you will enjoy it as a fun bike!

@Sankar: Well congrats on your new ride! After reading through the thread, I would want to comment whether its a good or bad decision because both bikes are excellent in their own domains. With the ZMA a more relaxed highway tourer, and the RTR eFi a rev happy city commuter.

But one thing I'd like to point out is the seating position, a lot of people are complaing about long distance unfriendly stance. But IMHO, its all about getting used to the riding position, no doubt that the KZma is most comfortable of the lot, but if one gets used to the stance of the RTR I'm sure it won't be that uncomfy too.

I'd like to mention about my experience with the 220, for first few 500+km ride on the bike, I would be totally exhausted at the end of the day. But now over a period of time I've kindda gotten used to the abuse that the 220 dishes out to the rider and 800km rides aren't that tiring anymore.
