Question Which litre bike?

So I've only had the 6R for a number of weeks but i know I'm making up for lost time and I know that sometime in the future I'll end up buying a new litre bike, probably brand new. Its something I feel I have to do at least one.. like ticking one off my bucket list.

I'd imagine it would be one of the mainstream bikes. So while I still want to enjoy the A1P its is starting to look dated and I need something to lust after.

Whats the popular choice from the selection in the poll.

Because I wanted to stick to the mainstream Jap bike.

Plus I was brought up on a R1000RT and I can't get that out of my head. BMW's smell of old men.

Lol have you looked recently? Doubt I will. Wish I took the time to take better pictures. Other guys have much more money/time in their rides though. Awesome bikes in there.

I'm guessing he was thinking of the Big 4 when he said mainstream bikes. S1K is the best track bike you can get off the shelf. So nice.

Oh and I reread the original post. If you're getting brand new, I'd go with a ZX10 all the way over the other three. Awesome numbers, best TC (from what I hear), and sweet looks.

Although, I think there's still a plan for the 2014 R1 to be a triple? Now THAT may be interesting...

I'll explain a bit of the thought process.. all my bike in my younger days were Honda. If I had just gone out to buy a bike under normal circumstance than I probably would have still bought Honda and ended up in a rut.

However I didn't and if you read my introduction you'll know that I ended up buying a bike because I got the 'permission' to buy a GPZ900R. I did my usual and pushed the envelope to end up with the ZX-6R.

After spending yesterday at the British Superbikes and seeing a whole load of makes and models I felt I may be in danger of ending up blindly buying Kawi and I wanted to know which of the list would turn your head.
