Hopefully, they WILL get into a power war. Why should only the sport bikes have the best performance? Why should we have to ride in a twisted pretzel position to have a high-performance bike? To me. the whole point of the naked bikes was to have a bike that looks like a motorcycle, not a piece of rolling plastic. And what's wrong with "that mentality" of wanting a top-performing bike? Performance is one of the most exciting things about motorcycles. Otherwise why not ride a moped or a Vespa?
Hopefully the nakeds won't get into power wars like the repli-racers. The whole point of the naked bike was to get away from that kind of mentality.
But if it sells (re above post) then I guess it makes sense
