BTW, the real conundrum WRT big naked bikes is the cost/market segment ratio. As I said, the NH 750 was a success because it was marketed as a bargain bike. The other big nakeds failed because the people who wanted it couldn't afford it, and the people who could afford it, didn't want it. $10k is an awful lot for a basic bike like the CB1100. Harley, Triumph and Moto Guzzi all sell decent 'standard' bikes for less than that. If they could bring it to market at the same price point as the likes of the Bonnie, the V7 or the basic Sportster, they'd have a real contender, but my fear is that they've priced it out of the reach of the people who would be most interested.
