What a weird review. You really STILL don't get it. Your site, Visordown, and many of the other motorcycle journals still judge a motorcycle by race track standards. Nobody wants to race motorcycles on the street like they were at a race track. It is foolish to begin with, unnecessary to set as a design goal, and among many other objections it is illegal.

You make comments like "... you can leave the bike in third or fourth as you throw it around bends, happy in the knowledge that you’ll be able to accelerate out the other side ... Nonetheless, the boards still scrape easily ... ultimately, it’s just not all that cool"

No one but a noob buys either a Harley or a street motorcycle with the design demand that it take gravel strewn corners in third gear like at Road America.

I have a 1998 Evo that has all kinds of street power and I've never scraped the footboards or taken a corner in third gear. These aren't race bikes (capital letters)!

Not cool!!!???? Boy oh boy, you and I have different conceptions of cool.
