Agreed, that thing is going to be tiny for a literbike.

I enthusiastically endorse the D955i. Loved my 2002 when I had it. And was very recently tempted to buy a beautiful first-gen model for about $2700.

Love the ZX-9, too, but the 954 is still pretty beautiful all these years later.

I saw a nice ZX9 for sale the other day. If I got the urge for a sportbike, that or maybe a used Daytona955 would be the way I'd have to go. I think the CBR954 was the last RR I could even consider fitting on. This class of bikes has passed a lot of people by.
