maybe they will follow aprilia's thinking with the rs660 and make a sports bike out of the mt07
Aprilia bills the RS660 as a street bike that can do track days, but after looking at the dyno chart ... it leans to the high strung side like the Street Triple. It's a sporty nearly-track-ready bike with concessions for street riding. I don't really regard that as a "street bike" (also my opinion from owning a Street Triple 765 RS). At least a faired MT-07 would be a real street bike, a stop light lane splitting torque monster.

I got tired of the wailing 765 engine noise. It is an awesome sound, but sometimes it's too much for 2 hours at a time, and partly because 6th was too short (a common complaint). The putt-putt N650 is uninspiring, but it's easy on the ears after 2 hours. The MT-07 should sound similar to the RS660? Aren't they both 270?
