That one pushes a lot of buttons for me but $13K is more than just chump change.

It's got some nice standard features (center stand, LED Headlights, Heated Grips)... but it's still an overpriced VFR800.

So the VFR 1200 wasn't selling enough eh? I imagine that is the penalty for pushing beyond the 900CC range. All that engine and plastic adds up to mega insurance bills and no sales.... Now if they would just learn where the price needs to be. I'd give around 9.2k for that bike and the tech, but 12.5 k is bonkers.....

My money would be on the FZ-09 anyways at this point. If I had the cash in hand I would buy one and sell the Hornet, not because I like the FZ more, but because the Hornet is still in great shape and low miles, and the FZ is a little lighter with the same power overall.

I always thought the CB700SC (like mine) carried it off better than the 1100:

I feel like the line is broken too much between the middle piece and the tail piece... But I definitly don't hate it.

The reflector on the grab bar continues the line from the side cover to the tail fairing. The top tank line on the 1100 also just kind of ends for no apparent reason and doesn't actually follow the line of the tank, where the 700's top line actually goes all the way back and disappears under the seat.

It looks like the forks are old school, not USD. Not that this is a bad thing but I would have expected more state of the art? Yes they have the mono-block calipers but from what I can see in the pictures not USD that we all seem to want?

There are bold motorcyclists and old motorcyclists, but (OK) there are few old bold motorcyclists

Wow that interceptor is disappointing.

I still love that CB1100. I'd really like to get one of those for a street bike. Get rid of my lame versys.
