To me, that kind of bike is all about how I feel riding the bike in terms of body position, and then it is the "whup ass coefficient" (power).
I think I would like fuel injection, but I currently own three bikes and none have FI and they all work pretty much the way I expect them to all the time.
I thought about buying that bike, but now that Yamaha is releasing that 1300 sport tourer stateside, I am going to have to test ride the ZZR and that Yamaha and see. I am not sure, though, that I want to go that route at all since I have a sportbike I love and I have a touring bike too and a standard with hard bags. Do I need it? Who said anything about "need"?
Ever since I test rode a VTX I have wanted one of those more than anything, it is like driving a bike with a V-8.
