You left out 2 options, Other and None of the Above. I would choose None of the Above. I really see no need to go to a liter bike unless I was doing more serious touring and then I would have to choose Other because you didn't list any Beemers
I voted for the Duc... That thing is flat out beautiful. And the trellis frame? Come on... who WOULDN'T want one of those? That, or the MV Agusta... But that's if I'm not buying. If I'm spending out of my own wallet, I'm going for the R1 SE. I'm loyal to the Kaws (although I think the fron of the new 10R is fugly), but the R1 seems to accommodate my height much better (I'm the freakin jolly green giant...I'm sure I look like a clown on the 636, but I love it)
I plan on finally picking up a liter next year after 5 years on 600s. I'm going to be on the hunt for an 04 black zx10 but if I can't find one with low miles than it's going to have to be an 05-06 gsxr 1000. The 636 will then be converted into a dedicated track bike.
06 R1 in the Anniversary colors would be my choice. I truly love my bike but the R1 might be the best looking bike I've ever seen. The way I see it any and every new liter bike is more than i will get to use since i rarely get a chance to redline my 600. So my decision is based more on asthetics than if I were trying to get another 6; then power would be more of a concern.
#1 because the 06 black looks amazing or even the orange...but im really diggin' the new 10's and hey for a bonus they come with an ohlins damper...plus i don't really like the gix1 or any others that much my second choice would be the R1...
