To me, just more character in those than the fours... Well, the ZZR had character when exceeding 125mph in 3rd, just too fast for this old man.
Totally agree, I'm in the same boat. I'm 53, had around 40 bikes, mostly twins and singles of all displacements, 3 inline fours. The only fours I find remotely interesting would be v-4's like Aprilia's Tuono. I'm sure that would be fun, but way too much power for the street (in my opinion), and fairly heavy, and expensive. With a face only a mother could love, although many have said the same of the new FZ.
