Long post short...I LOVED the CBR. I also LOVE the ZX-10R. And I love the BMW S1000RR. But they are all very different motorcycles. I will own one of the two Jap masterpieces along side my S1000RR. Ideally it will be after Honda wakes up. I honestly would miss the 4 fueling modes, 4 modes of traction control, quick shifter and yes heated grips on the Bimmer. When the Honda has all or at least TRC and quick shifter...the real competition begins anew.
