You stated that no Japanese factory had an 800cc sport naked. I just reminded you of the bike you've never seen in the wild. I've only ever seen one not in a showroom, and would rather have the Ninja than the FZ8. For exactly the reasons you posted.
But within that price range and engine size I would like one of these more than the Kaw.
I like the looks and feel better than the Ninja 650, as we don't have the latest EN6R in the states. If that EN6R did come here I would have some serious figuring to do...
