Somebody probably already posted this, but, I'd like a GSX-R100 Sport Tourer. Same engine, same suspension, just more wind protection, slightly higher clip-ons, slightly lower foot-pegs and integral hard luggage. Oh, and a gallon more fuel.

Excellent I like it. I like digital but analog is quicker to process in your brain i.e. you get a sense of scale Having a flat panel display LCD where you could select the style of display would be cool. Some folks might want digital some might want analog or a combination. Heck it shouldn't be that expensive. You could even have one LCD for the entire line of bikes could save costs. Include a standard bus to interface it with other stuff. i.e. diagonositc equipment.
