Well crap! Strike what I said about sewing machines above! A redone, early Katana 1100 is one of my few exceptions to my general rule against inline 4s. As is something along the lines of the Sanctuary bike. Older classics, reworked with modern components to bring them up to date are very different from the cookie cutters sitting on a dealer's showroom today. Those bikes are unique enough in their own right to make up for the "lack of character" of the engine layout.
