Depends on what you're looking for in a bike. The Sprint RS is a sport-touring bike, and has a longer wheelbase than the Speed3. It's more stable in the fast stuff, but less nimble in the tight corners. The Speed3 also has a better suspension with more adjustments on the forks. The Speed3 is a better backroad blaster or track toy, while the Sprint RS is less expensive and better for longer highway jaunts, while still being a capab le backroad toy.
You can't go wrong either way, unless you turn into a track junkie. If you do you'll quickly find the limitations of the Sprint's suspension and wheelbase. Guess that explains why the Speed3 is more expensive.
