Nice bike, but "liter-class supersport" it is not. Some of the bikes mentioned in this thread make almost twice the power of the 1100S which is more on par with a machine like the VFR800 or ST3. For something with nice midrange punch and a more comfortable riding position, I'm sure it's great though!
