...who wants or plans to trade up from their ZX-12R to get one of these new 14's?

Is it worth it? Pro's and con's?

What 12R?
We have a Bandit 1200/S for "Sport"-touring - me & Nina
12R is just a lard-ass wanna-be super-sport
and not very good at that
also not good at beating Busa
14 will do that quite easily
BUT
if you're looking at supersport
you're much better of with 10R or a gixxer

Have you rode a 12 and raced a busa.

I don't do racing on the streets
but I have ridden several Busa's and 12R's Sep-Oct 2005
before the winter here in Finland

Do you claim that 12R, 14, or Busa could beat the 10R (or Gixxer)
Not on those racing places where you go for you fun
On a stright line doing 1/4 yes, 1/8 I doubt
I myself am such a bad pilot after lost decades
that I can't do anything anymore
that's why I like more of the touring aspect
I'm simply getting old...
and the bikes are getting meaner & leaner
