    But for me it'll be another supersport when I upgrade again. I'm almost certain of that.*
    aye, as mentioned above its just the way things are headed for a lot of riders...
    its nice to ride more relaxed bikes and actually have a look around once in a while

    true, that. but there are plenty of screens available, altho many 'naked' riders object that they ruin the looks of the bike. I've been thru screens from Skidmarx, National Cycles ( X 2 ), and now MRA - best materials and workmanship by far... German = TUV certified = impeccible, right down to all the fittings.

    If you want the best in handling and performance nothing beats a sportbike. I've owned a lot of different bikes in my quest for the perfect ride and I keep coming back to sportbikes. Everything else is fun for awhile and then they get boring.

    I'm getting pretty old and the day will come when I have to retire to a burgman or a spider. Omg shoot me now.
    and there's a problem. most manufacturers DO back off on power for naked and more upright bikes, and maybe that's understandable, even rational. but it's a pain to have 'poorer' suspension and brakes added into the mix too! just sell us the 'full fat' versions, guys! we're not talking economy bikes here in the first place.

    exceptions include KTM, Aprilia, Yamaha sorta, BMW sorta... Triumph too of course, with the Speed Triple, which is what it is, with no 'sportbike' progenitor. but generally, if you want comfort, you give up significant 'other stuff' too!


    EDIT: shit! duhhh... I forgot Ducati:
