Powerful Genesis® 4-stroke engine – legendary reliability
This 1049cc DOHC, 3-Cylinder, 4-stroke unit combines impressively quiet, economical performance and durability with strong acceleration across the RPM range. Calibrated for the demands of long distance touring, it features a special clutch setting for smooth linear power delivery - and a more comfortable ride.
ProComfort® CK 144 rear suspension
Thanks to the ProComfort® CK rear suspension, a plush ride and great anti-bottoming performance are assured. There’s a high-tech 40mm high pressure gas clicker shock on the rear arm, which is easily adjusted to suit one or two-up riding. The suspension also features special wheels with replaceable bearings and a trick-style spoke design.
Revolutionary EPS (Electric Power Steering)
EPS means easier, more relaxed riding. A small electric actuator produces the optimum level of assistance for the speed and snow conditions, so the machine feels lighter and more stable during turns, with less ski lift. It also insulates the rider from kickback, making it easier to move the handlebars for more precise steering.
Supreme rider comfort
The whole backrest can be moved forward or backward for solo or 2-up riding. The heated passenger grips have two height positions, while the handlebars are positioned for optimal ergonomics. The addition of special skis and runner materials offer an even smoother ride.
Preload adjustable HPG front shocks
The 40mm High Pressure Gas (HPG) shocks on the RSVenture GT’s revised third generation front suspension geometry deliver consistent performance with excellent fade resistance.
Multi-function digital instrument panel
All essential ride data is displayed on a fully-featured digital gauge, displaying speed, RPM, grip heater level, dual trip meters and a clock. In addition, an oil trip readout tells you when it’s time for an oil change, while a fuel trip readout displays kilometres covered since the fuel warning light came on.
Integrated storage with hardtop lid
A spacious storage compartment with a hardtop lid is perfectly integrated into the sleek, stylish bodywork of the RSVenture GT. Its weather-resistant seal helps keep out snow dust and moisture - guarding your possessions against damage.
Exceptional wind protection
Functional, stylish and strong, the large windshield protects both driver and passenger, deflecting cold air and snow spray. With the heated hand grips provided for both driver and passenger, the RSVenture GT promises you a comfortable, warm adventure, however far you travel.
