    Default 2015 RT Limited verses RT Special Series question

    Is there any difference in these 2 bikes except for color changes? I find that the Special Series seems to ride firmer or is it just my imagination?
    Thanks for any responses.

    I believe the difference is all cosmetic.

    otherwise be a vulgar brawl.

    Would have been nice if they had made the S, SS and Ltd different in more ways than just colors and chrome.

    Could be tire pressure if everything else is the same.

    This might be a silly question, but have you turned the ride button to soft or hard? we just got our 2015 Special Series but I'm amazed at how well it handles Speed Bumps. Can hardly feel them even with two up. I'll hafta check which setting on ours is turned on.

    The biggest thing I have seen is the Front rims! On a RT limited the rims are chrome, the Special series have black with a sort chrome trim, I looked them up, could not find a place to buy them. I thought they looked really cool.

    The difference is the s model has Differnt back sprocket. I could be wrong but that is the difference IMHO see. Some get going up grade leave small sprocket behind then going down hill they Zoom. Big sprocket bad ass gear small sprocket highway. IMHO check with your other Ryders
