I can't see the headlights or side fairings while I'm riding so that would never be a deal breaker. This is one HOT bike and I would proudly ride the piss out of it.

I couldn't care less about the headlights either. The thing has more electronics in it than the Mars Rover. If I had the coin, I wouldn't hesitate to buy that bike and hit the track.

I have to give BMW (and other European manufactures) credit for pushing the envelope because it sure isn't coming from Honda. They just released the new 600RR and it STILL doesn't have a slipper clutch. I may not get a new bike for a year or more but pretty damn sure it won't be a Honda...

Really? No slipper clutch? WTF? And forget about getting a V4 liter bike from Honda. And what about TC, launch, and wheelie control? Not likely from the sources I have even though all of that stuff actually makes the bike safer to ride. It is good enough for their race bikes but F the public. At least BMW, Kawi, and Yamaha are trying to actually bring their race technology to street bikes. The three aforementioned companies understand that a good number of folks take their sport bikes to the track and expect them to be pretty much track ready. Honda...? Who knows? In superstock trim the CBR1000RR is a good race bike but to get it competitive in the superbike world takes a lot of cash and some stuff the factories just won't give you unless they are sponsoring you.

I am with you on looking at my next bike purchase. Since I only race now I will be looking at what bike to get as a race bike and right now Honda isn't high on my list.
