I had an 04 RT bought new and now ride an 06 RT purchased used. Both have servo assisted brakes and I wouldn't be without them on anything. My 4 wheel vehicles also have "Linked" ABS power brakes and are much appreciated.

One thing: If you have it, USE IT! Learn how the bike reacts to a full on panic stop from fifty or sixty mph. Most people never really use the brake systems to their full advantage due to fear of hurting the system somehow. That is folly. If you don't practice panic stops how on earth will you be able to stop in a panic situation?
