The public will have to decide whether or not it wants bikes that are heavier in return for a narrower profile. Then they have to decide whether or not the aerodynamic gains that only show up at impoundment speeds+ are worth the extra complexity and expense. Notice that Honda's VFR costs about the same as the SprintST which displaces another 250cc.

When a complete idiot makes a statement, it's usually a safe bet to go with the other side of the argument. I'd say it's worked at a 99% success rate so far with KWalterMitty, so why change? Hey Seru, I always wondered why a guy with 12 engineering degrees is making cupholders anyway. I guess that's the last stop at Boeing before being shown the door.
