A buddy of mine that has a BMW RS 1200 loved the look of my X road and was considering buying one - he took a X country out for a test ride and liked the way it handled but said "I expected the 106 to be more satisfying power wise". Personally I was always happy with the 106 - is the 1200 RS really a more "satisfying" motor? I told him that you can add ponies by pulling the strip, new filter, pipes and PC5. But he has pretty much moved on. I believe that was his true impression - good guy and money is not an issue...he's loaded. An example of not buying after a test ride....
