OK, so for the longest time I have been looking for a Honda CB900F (919 Hornet). I'm now in a position to buy a new bike (about a $5000 budget) and I'm having second thoughts... the only reason for the second thoughts is really the scarcity of the 919. Unfortunately the Euro markets get all the cool bikes and we get all of the garbage
So I'm just wondering if there is a good alternative to the 919? Here is what I'm looking for:
Aggressive/Cool street fighter design
Comfortable riding position
LOTS of power (and I'm a seasoned rider so I don't need any mom comments thanks) (unless you want to comment on the powerband or accel/decel smoothness)
EFI!! <- NO CARBS! I friggen HATE carbs.
Thats about it. As far as I'm concerned the 919 met all of my criteria but the scarcity issue bothers me. I wouldn't mind a later model but the best I can find at the moment is a 2002. I've done a lot of reading but I'm also open to opinions on the 919
Type of riding will mostly be ripping around town with the odd 4hr ride here and there.
