If the future means 700lb minimum weights I'll be happy to stay in the past.

While neither is a good candidate for an only bike, either would look good in Leno's garage!

Yep, even with all its low-end grunt, you can't help but wring its nuts off!

These are way, way too big and heavy.

Bring me the Suzuki Stratosphere, 1100c, 180hp, in the tradition of the original CBX:
Suzuki Stratosphere Concept Features 1100cc Inline Six « MotorcycleDaily.com – Motorcycle News, Editorials, Product Reviews and Bike Reviews

There's a concept that died a quiet death...

That was an interesting concept. If/when the Concept 6 and EVO6 reach production, then maybe Suzuki would green-light the Stratosphere.
