I think it's just cool to think the Europeans are doing all this new stuff.

It would be interesting if Honda released an updated CBX1000 across the frame 6 and see what the reaction is.

The Europeans have traditionally just released a motor and bolted different bits to it. Maybe some sell, maybe they don't but the advantage they have seems to be that people are prepared to pay big bucks because they are used to it.

The Japanese however seem to have to be made at a lower price point regardless. I wonder if Hyosung will have to be stuck in the "cheaper than the Japanese" place forever. Must be frustrating.
