It looks like Kawasaki and Honda are pushing up the engine displacement in the the "small motorcycle" market. First came the Ninja 300, now it appears Honda is upping the ante with a 500. However, for BC, I am not sure how it will fare here since there are the Ninja 400's, 650's and its own NC700, and a big insurance advantage for being 400cc or less. I was hoping for a 400 but in 250-ish chassis. If I want this much power and had to give up the light weight and agility needed for daily city riding survival, I might as well get something with a larger engine, say 700 or 800.
