interesting new bikes!

so there are now a few new models that are interesting to me:
Honda CB500X/F
Honda CBR250R
Kawasaki Ninja 300
KTM Duke 390

Gotta say if Kaw came out with a naked 300 version of the ninja 300 it would be spot on! same for the CBR250R in a naked version
or better yet bring the VFR250 stateside!

my sort of list of requirements is:
250-500cc, one or two jugs (preferably one!)
naked style preferred
primarily street
prefer a relatively long range and good mileage.
I am not interested in full fairings and lots of fiberglass to replace when (not if) it gets dropped or bumped or whatever
I an NOT a new rider. I have had several motorcycles stretching back to 1975 and ranging from 250cc to 850cc
Actually I am waiting for Yamaha to reissue the SR500!

I believe that I just read that suzuki had a different naked 250 heading this way as well:

Make this a 300 or 350 and a 6 speed instead of a 5 speed and I would buy another one (sold my TU)
