Default Competitors on the market

I'd like to know your view on which would be the most direct competitors to CBR 650F (full fairing mid-range bikes). Very strictly there are none, but if you start counting twins, the list starts to fill up.

The first one that pops up to mind and is also compared most often in articles would be Ninja 650, but that is a smaller and significantly less powerful bike. Tracer 700 is a bit closer looking at power (still 15 HP less!), but the seating position is quite different, not exactly the same type of bike.

Next could be the stronger twins - BMW F800 GT and the new Ducati Supersport. You rarely see anyone comparing 650F to these bikes, but in fact they are closer in specs than the small Ninja. The bigger difference here would be the extra equipement and options that CBR is lacking.

Your views?

Cheers, Bernard

I have seen one or 2 Youtube videos comparing the CBR650f to the Kawasaki Z800 based on similar MSRP.

I personally do not agree.
