Later models have better transmission but poorer economy. R75/80’s the best model, especially with RS fairing, but the good ones are very rare – owners don’t want to sell. R90/100’s have weird handling and excess vibes, engines go after 50,000 miles (smaller bikes can do twice that). Clutch, timing chain, generator and valvegear likely problems.
