We should know by now that it is the monkey, not the banana, that needs to get better, but if you can convince the monkey he needs a better banana, and sell him a better banana, then do so and take the monkey's cash.
None of the OEMs are in business to make functional bikes, they are in business to make money. If you make the new one faster than the old one, it will sell to the monkey that needs the new banana to be better.
