Any of you guys got one of these ? Can be bad for around $4000 new. Not bad it seems. Might pick it up
To drive to work...60 miles one way.

Can anyone offer insight ?

I had a 690 for two years. Fun bike for around town but I would not consider it for a 60 mile one way commute. They have virtually no wind protection so the extended freeway trips are tiring, mentally and physically. My 690 was pretty damn quick up to 60 but 60 to 80 was pretty gutless so passing on the freeway took some planning. I would imagine the rc390 is probably better for longer commute because you're crouched down in the sport bike position you can hid behind the little windscreen better.
