You're not getting it

A lot of people want a streetfighter style bike but don't want to actually build or modify one themselves, just like peole who buy chopper styled cruisers, like springer softails. Except that factory naked bikes are actually decent motorcycles. In America streetfighters aren't even that big, but in europe they are, and people are buying lots of small displacement naked sporty bikes as a result. Now what's this about an...Integrilous? Integrado? What? Streetfighters are like Acuras??

And to that guy below you, the SV and the Duc are good choices if that's what you want, but what if it's not? Neither of those bikes can compete with a TT600 in all out performance. The Duc MIGHT keep up on a road that favors a lighter twin's handling, and the SV might have a chance with an expensive suspension upgrade, but they'd both still be way down on power.

"naked friendly"

"naked friendly" motors don't belong in streetfighters. Not that this is a streetfighter, it's a stock factory bike. But if it's supposed to appeal to streetfighter fans and wannabes, why not have it look as streetfighter as possible? Streetfighters need purposeful looking motors, that's all. Pretty can even be bad in a streetfighter. Save the pretty motors for old people.
