To each their own, but whats the "in between" role from an R6 and R1 would it fill? Both are bred track bikes. Which class would you fit the R7 in? I am guessing the 650 sport/ sport-touring bike class (IE N650/CBR650/VFR/etc) ? I dont think it would be fitting to make another SS just to fill a gap between 600-1000, since both their SS are already great machines. Would it be like a faired FZ07? Cause then you can just go to FZ6R.. They have a very good line up already, so not sure where an "R7" would fit in.I would still prefer a Yamaha R7 over a Street Triple 375R anyday.
