    I do wish BRP would do a better job of marketing. Their website and video's are flashy but don't really show or get down to the nitty gritty of the bike. Think they ought to give a better tour of the design and changes etc., I understand that this is their way of marketing but people who buy the product and own one already, would love to know the details, see the details, understand the details etc., you can't learn with the video's they have produced. Think they could improve on that for sure.

    I think it looks good and seems to have some great features. Long footboards allow you to move your legs (That's why I ride a F3L), removable trunk that is wide enough to hold two helments, and better electronics control panel. What I really want to know is how big are the saddlebags and the frunk? Are they bigger than the F3 bags because this looks a lot like a modified F3.

    Thanks a lot. I looked, I liked, I printed a build it page, I looked at potential dealers.

    They even got me with the RT in Petrol (Aqua) color...been waiting for that since about 2013. I like the "clean" look...no top box. Found two accessories...the heated comfort seat and the front auxilliary light. No need for the $2K top box in back. So far...$24K and change.

    Remaining....a dealer who is willing to give me a good deal....and I am hard when it comes to that. The looking and make an offer stage to follow.

    Keep in mind this was the dealer show, not consumer show. They repeatedly said, "Come see us in the showroom!" That's where the dealers will see the details. Consumers just have to wait our turn!

    Thanks. I looked it up after i wrote that post. It looks like with both sporting top boxes the new RTL has about 25% more storage than the F3L. . That's a bunch.

    The hinge improvements carry to the F3 as well. They use the same top case for 2020.

    That's because it IS a modified F3. Same chassis with more options added. The new frunk is larger with the radiators moved outward and facing forward. Its just a trim level up from the F3 limited now.

    I happen to like the F3 trim look, a lot. I always felt that RT and F3 were side by side, just for different stylings. But that seems to have changed. :\ Guess it's a good thing I'm not looking to replace mine.

    Does anyone know if there is more room for the passenger front-to back? My wife and I are on the bigger side, and having some room between us would be really nice. Our 2018 RT LTD is a little cramped.
    When we had our HD, I moved the tour pack back 2 inches (52mm) which allowed some air to pass between us. I wonder if this can now be done on the 2020 RT LTDs?

    I really like the trunk space. Seen that on the F3 years ago and wised they have it on the RT models at that time.

    Like the RT without the topcase, which is why I purchased the the F3T.

    This RT without the topcase should make the ST owners happy. It looks similar to the ST, has the same size frunk but with the 1330 engine.

    How does that compare to the previous RT? We have a 2012. Trying to determine if there is a net gain or loss on storage capacity.

    There was no way you could put two helmets in the previous RT. So it is larger.

    Hopefully the lights are more effective than my RT. I've got old eyes. Need lots of light.

    The took the RT and merged it with the F3 so now you have an F3 that you sit on and not in. Still is going to be an expensive bike to maintain due to all the plastics that have to be removed. Maybe it will grow on me by the time I get tired of my 2020 F3 Limited due in anytime soon.
