Looks like the sport standards are making a comeback...
The CB1000R is coming to the US in '11!
I'm on an '06 Yamaha FZ1 (Gen II) and I'm going to wait until Yamaha does the Gen III (hopefully in '12) before I make a move, but its looking like a good year for the standards.
Kawasaki has the new Ninja 1000 (upright faired 1L) and Z1000 (naked)
Suzuki is kind of bringing up the rear with a new faired version of the old Bandit 1250. I read something about a sport standard with a GSX-R750 motor?
Yamaha soliders on with the 5th model year of the Gen II and the FZ6
I'm really into Japanese bikes, but the Ducati streetfighters and the new Triumph Speed Triple are out too
