Well it wasn't to be a Yamaha or Suzuki but i'd had never thought i'd own one of these a few months ago. I was specifically looking at Hondas.. CBR600F and CBR900 to be exact. Anyway, this is the new ride and she is not comfy, but I love the look of it and is running great at the moment. Should do me for awhile. The bike came with a rooted carbon can and I have since chopped that in half and put it back together. It can get a bit much on long rides but it'll do for now.
