Most people, ( if not ALL people ), would probably NOT be interested in putting a set of $5,000 wheels on a $5,000 motorcycle.
Myself included. Cuz i'm just cheap like that.
Yeah totally. I've spent like $4500-5000 in parts already including my $450 Scorpio Ride/Secure alarm/telemetric data unit. The only reason I have no problem putting a $900 rear shock on the R3 is suspension is a great and safe upgrade; but it's nearly 20% of the retail price of the bike.
But the price of the R3 is what makes it desirable. You have a lot of ability to upgrade the suspension, exhaust, brakes, etc. If you spend $12K on a CBR600RR or ZX-6R, one would likely have less ability or incentive to upgrade a lot although there are less things to upgrade ostensibly.
I love my R3, but just wish it had a little more umph. I wonder if a 400cc P-Twin would make much of a differences the CBR500 isn't rated that much higher in bhp. I am not an engine guru, but also wonder if an Inline4 is viable in a smaller cc engine. My problem is that I definitely do not want a 750-1000. I have always been a 600 rider. However, current 600s are either too race oriented (ZX6R, CBR600RR) or the "Sport" types middle weights like the CBR650F, Ninja600, CBR500, FZ600R, etc are flawed in their own way.
But I digress. I talk and write too much...
I'm considering a Japanese market bike now: It's a Kawasaki 250cc inline four cylinder that makes 40hp at the rear wheel. 21,000 rpm redline!
