If they painted it black I'd be all over it like a cheap hooker.
Something along these lines? I've got the red version. It's not an 1100, but has pretty good performance numbers.If they painted that thing Red, White , and Blue, and put the little 1100F headlight fairing on it, they wouldn't be able to make enough of them.

I got passed by a 919 yesterday. It was an 02 model. I see that one every once in a while. It still had the original stock mufflers. I'll bet not many original mufflers survived.
I’ve sat on one and I didn’t seem to think it felt any smaller than many other bikes in the naked category (Super Duke, Monster, MT10).Wait until you sit on one. I was almost ready to go for the 1000r neo sports then when I put my leg over it I thought no way. These bikes are tiny I'm telling you.
I'm fine with the size of the 1000R, I'd get one except the insurance bill is ridiculous. Honda put the R suffix on it so as a result it gets hit with the literbike-tax-because-people-wrap-R-bikes-around-trees-like-it-is-going-out-of-style insurance rate bat. Multiple times.

Weight seems to be in line with the others also.
It did feel like the riding position was tad more aggressive though, lower handlebars and higher foot pegs, which may make it feel tighter.
Did you run insurance quotes through several companies?
When I was in the market for a new bike a few years back I was looking at a Super Duke, Monster 1200, and CB1000R.
The SDR and Monster were both right at $750/yr for me for full coverage though Geico.
But the CB was $1200, really shocked me because it was the most “conservative” bike of the 3.
Then ran it through Progressive and the CB was in the $700 range and the other 2 were over $1000.
Seems that different companies rate bikes differently.
Wow, $4000 is nuts.Correct, different companies have different actuaries and therefore different rates. When it came out, I was getting quotes of $2000-4000 for full coverage. Even today they're still high; the dealer I deal with has made similar observations recently and cited that as a reason they're having problems selling them at times.
