I can't tell if it's the bike or the incredible photograph.

Under powered, Heavy and over priced with very short maintenance intervals and high maintenance costs. There is a reason I have owned 3 Gixxers and will probably have another.

I am ashamed to admit I would not mind an 1198sp though.

My Fiancee actually wants me to get an 848 next year because it is "Pretty" If it had more than looks I would probably be all over it.

Jap bikes = More reliable. You will probably have as many electrical issues etc as you did with your ZX-6 if they are anything like they were a few years back. Better HP to weight ratio, Longer maintenance intervals. Cheaper parts and much more bang for your buck here. The girl wants me to buy a Duc next year because she thinks they are pretty. As true as that may be I think I would be ashamed and not want any of the old bike crew to see... It would be like riding a scooter..or a fat chick

Totally old school but I always lusted for one of these - underpowered, small wheels and tires, crap electrics but I wanted one so bad back in the day.
