I welcome the idea of "water cooled".. The so called "weight issue" is no biggie. Manufacturers have "water cooled" bikes for years,even dirt bikes which are put through a hell'va lot worse conditions. Weight will always be shaved off some how,some way.

And,there will always be those who want the "latest and greatest" in gadgets. We all have different wants an needs. And their will always be a *new idea* incorporated on the latest model.
I just feel that some of these *ideas* should be kept as options instead of
standard equipment :ie antenna ring/chipped key as in security option.

I am all for *keeping it *simple* but improvements are what got us to the next generation of bikes in the first place.
If your against these *improvements* buy an older bike without them...simple as that, or like me,*hope* they make them optional.
