Very pretty, but strange that they describe it as an "RS", unless that's what the original donor bike was. RS, to me, signifies more of an upright touring kind of a machine with luggage. I'd think of this more as an 'S'. The headers running through the centre stand is an unusual touch too.
You really need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.

'm not usually a fan of "Cafe racer" style type reworks but this one is very restrained - with some quality engineering touches.
There would appear to be a surfeit of prolixity and sesquipedalian content today please do not use a big word when a singularly un-loquacious and diminutive linguistic expression will satisfactorily accomplish the contemporary necessity

Interesting post. The front brembos borrowed from S1000rr. Wry smile. Essential.

Don`t you all agree, these racers look fantastic.

Perhaps a reverse cone megaphone on the shaft side would be my only change otherwise a very nice example of the cafe look
