The problem is the manufactures have no reason to make this bike, or we would have really good ones by now.

450CC MX bikes, governed by a class of racing. Every few years they get lighter and better.

600CC sport bikes, governed by a class of racing. Every few years they get lighter and better.

1000CC sport bikes, governed by a class of racing. Every few years they get lighter and better.

Adventure bikes. Governed by internet bragging rights, the Touratech catalog, and the philosophy that bigger is better! The bean counters determine what is produced. They think the guys who will buy the new 1300cc bike because it is better than the old 1200cc bike are the ones that bring the money to the dealer. In a few years, we will make a 1400CC bike and they will all come running again. That is how we got where we are today.

We need a class of racing that requires a a 750CC bike, and the rider has to carry luggage. That is the only way the bike you guys want will get built!



[edit]

That is the only way the bike we want (I want one too) will get built.
