It is not that it is "over looked" it is that people generally avert their gaze from hideous and revolting things.

No more air cooled high power jap bikes like these, they don't pass
various emissions laws.

ZXR1200, XJR1300, GSX1400.. all gone..

CB1300 is probably still available.. somewhere.

I couldn't agree more. Sucks that they never brought it to the U.S..

Yeah, that's true, but it's not the same bike as before.

Before what? I had a '99 ZRX1100. It was liquid cooled and the predecessor to the current model.

The 1200 in production now is different to the one the rest of the world
got up to about 2006. At least here in EU.

Yeah, I know . What bike ? I can't choose so why try.
I'll take the entire lineup of Ducati Superbikes from the 851 all the way to the 1199. Oh and a big climate controled building to keep them in between rides.
Pic from the Indy Moto GP Ducati Island.

I'll tell you what. I really wouldn't want to give up my current bike, but I wish I had held out for the '13 models from HD. Nearly all of them have some sort of metalflake paint available now.
