Poll: What is your ideal capacity for a Japanese sports bike?

600cc supersport bikes were once championed as the perfect bikes to tackle Britain's twisty, undulating back roads. But recent sales figures show a surprising lack of interest in the supersport market. Japan also seems less than excited by the class, with most supersport bikes receiving nothing but cosmetic upgrades over the last few years - the Honda CBR600RR is essentially the same...

I agree. V Twins rock plenty of grunt is better than high reving screamers. Still like 600's Just don't like the stupid 9k price tags they carry for models that are unchanged for 5 years.

About time manufactures made a decent 250 cc, they used to be great fun, a good usable twin  at a decent price, papers are full of sportbikes and tests, its getting booring,

IMHO current motorbikes are just about unrideable. Even the liter bikes lack low rpm power, making them all pretty much unusable for legal driving (but very suitable for fun :)). The latest Fireblades reach almost 100 mph in first gear. My dream bike would be 600 or less, tuned and geared towards low rpm torque, not high rpm horsepower. For you wishing for 250 bike. Honda has new CBR250R, I've not ridden it but on paper it looks nice. Google it. :)

1200 V TWIN

@11000 RPM redline, Honda engined, GIXER riding position, Kawasaki brakes, Yamaha MotoGP Tech... as for build quality? a combination of all four. Now if we could just have a little bit of Italian Flair added to the mix....

cut the fat

The biggest engine you can fit in a 100kg bike would be my choice. I like light bikes.

I bought a zx6r but it didn't have enough low end to mid range power so I switched to a cbr1000 but it wasn't really any different and not much faster. I realized I don't want a sports bike on the road so I sold the cbr and got a street triple and loving the power but no fairing makes it so poor on the motorway.... Struggling to find the perfect bike lol.
