I will be 'moving on up' to a sport bike in a month or so, and am pretty much settled on a Kawasaki 500R. It satisfies my memories of what a 'traditional' sport bike should be. However, I've always wanted a 4-cyl bike, but am a little daunted by the power of the "modern" sportbikes. Now, I fully understand that there is a HP limiter mounted on the right end of the handlebars, but I also have relapses into juvenile stupidity even in my advanced years in both cars and on bikes.
Is there a "tame" 600cc sport bike that won't scare the crap out of my 60 year old carcass or the public in general too much?
