I remember seeing it in Cycle World in a "look what we aren't going to get" article, and thought it was a great idea.
The all-blackout model doesn't do it for me at all - much prefer red with a silver engine and wheels with CHROME fenders!
That 4-into-1 collector like the old CB400F is great.
Even the white/gray model is cool.
But I have an aircooled 23 year old FJ1200 that would kick it's ass, so it's doubtful I'd buy one - prices at the Honda store are getting up there - the CBR600 is $11,700, if that's any indication of what it would sell for.
