Re: Thats great, now if they will just get a new....
From an outsiders point of view they seem to be very resistant to this idea. Like you, I have trouble understanding why?
Perhaps it's nothing more than money considerations?
Right here on MO they did a "shootout" where all the riders commented on how well such an under powered bike did against more powerful hardware. There were even descriptions of an R1 not being able to keep up in the real twisty stuff!
The bike is doing this with what? 103 HP? Now, imagine this platform with a street version of say, a 130 HP engine!
No it still wouldn't out run a Busa on long straight roads, but get in to the type of "kiss your own back side" twisty roads like where I live, and you'll do very well no matter who's bike your up against.
