Thanks for the response 10Arghh.
Owned a 2012 Ninja 1000 a few years ago and didn't like the harsh suspension or abrupt on/off throttle character, even after getting an ECU flash by Ivan himself up at Ivan's Performance in Rockland County New York. My ZRX1200R is filling my upright bike needs fine. I just want a true sportbike that I can live with on the streets. Funny how the GSXR and the gen 3 and gen 4 ZX10Rs I've ridden are so much more street friendly and smooth in on/off throttle applications than the 2012 Ninja 1000 I had.
You want a true sport bike, but also a soft suspension and smooth throttle? I am not sure what bike you are wanting us to tell you about, but honestly it sounds like you have your mind made up but trying to justify it with nonsense.
Do what you want, get what you want, and be done with it!
