new bikes have less and less plastics.... they look semi streetfighter, and not so sporty anymore. i think well designed plastics for the whole engine compartment would make the bike look more track and less street. but thats just my opinion.

Maybe the wait will be worth it....
Maybe by the time it ever comes to the U.S. they will make a split seat version.

Nope. That's why they have a RR. That's why they went to the nanner seat in '04. The RR replaced the F4i as the 600 sport bike. They nanner seat made it a "sport tourer."

I did a bit of looking around on this and it seems Honda did a nice job at offering accessories for it which is nice. They've got a factory under, tail hugged, tail bag, passenger seat cowl, and a few other things. Really wish they would bring this over to the US in the next couple of years. We all know it took them forever to bring over the 250, maybe in a few we will see it. I would probably put the f4i up for sale to get one of these. In one of the articles I read the super sports sales are down and more people are looking for a slightly higher seating arrangement than laying over an RR tank. Maybe it's wishful thinking, but yamaha and Suzuki I know are on the bandwagon making detuned super sport models with the more upright seating.

Just get an f2 0r f3. This bike is a faired hornet (599) which is based off the f3. So it's an f3 with a backbone frame instead of twin spar, fuel injection, USD forks (though only preload adjustable) and bigger brakes. I'll take one. Ohhhh, not in the U.S.? Well poop. f3 it is
