I think there's a market for bikes that don't look like a dorky fake retro bike and also don't look like a transformer. It's not for me though. I need to buy something that'll beat my buddy's cbr1000rr in a 60 roll before I mature enough to realize that it's a bad idea.
There's a short list of hardware out there that will accomplish a task like that. My Kawasaki will do it; so will a Hayabusa. The latest BMW literbike. Anything south of that, like the proverbial Gixxer Thou, is a toss up.
I've got a soft spot for the Hayabusa cause I'm kind of funny looking too, although I really like your Kawasaki. But I've taken the honda for a spin a few times and I know I'd be dead or in jail if I tried to ride it how it's meant to be ridden. I've got all I can say grace over with my 40hp GS500e for now
