Ladies what would be your Dream sports bike?

I'm doing alittle research, and i want to know if you could build your own dream bike, how would you build it?

What color?
What graffics? if any?
What size engine?
How many cylinders?
Would you have ram air?
Would it have a single or double sided swing arm?
Would it have single, double, triple head lights?
Would you build a Pinto $$$ so people could afford it or would build a Ferrari so the rich and famous could only enjoy?
What ever else that you could dream up, please let me know, thanks...

ps
send pics or drawings if you have them?

My dream bike is already on the market - well sort-of. I'd love to have the R-1, but don't exactly want that big of a bike, and the R-6 is too small. I like the 750cc bikes much better because of the weight.
As far as the paint goes, I got a cool idea from a commercial. I think it was Nissan - where the car was going so fast that the paint slid off the body. I think a simulation of that would be cool.
OR a dark color like navy or black cherry on the front end, that fades to a lighter color at the rear.

Cool

frame/handling of a GP bike
750cc V-twin (~100 hp)
fuel injection
the looks of the 2003 R6
Practical single sided swingarm (NOT like the old Ducs)
Magnesium wheels
NO stickers
Colors: Forest Green, SV650 Blue, Red, Yellow, Orange, Black, Silver


If this bike fulfilled my every dream, I'd pay up to $15,000 for it. But I'm an elitist snob.

I have one question... How the heck do you stunt an EX500? Those two words shouldn't go together in the same sentence in my opinion yet I've heard this a couple of times and not only that but I've heard it about the 250 also! What stunts can you possibly do on these bikes? I can't get the wheel up for more than a couple of seconds and that's sitting on the passengers seat revving it to 9K and dumping the clutch, I absolutley cannot get it to do a stoppie with out locking the front tire up. What's the deal? Maybe I just suck...

I am suprized that no one on this Thread has suggested a lower saddle height. After all there are a lot of women & MEN out there that cannot purchase a sportbike due to saddle height.

Remember all the others on the road are crazy & out to kill you.

I'm with Smitty on this, that's the exact problem my wife has with almost all sportbikes. We had to have her F4 lowered just to get her on the balls of her feet. I know there are a lot of vertically challenged guys out there too that would be happy about a few models with lower saddles too. Not much of an issue for me as I'm 6'2" though. I usually have trouble finding a bike that's big enough!

I'm tall. I'm a VERY solid 5'9" and finding a starter bike with a comfortable seat height was a nightmare. My dad's BMW F650GS Dakar was WAAAAAAY too tall. I could only get one foot down at a stop. My Suzuki GS500 was too small. I could sit with my knees bent and feet entirely flat on the ground. Good for parking/backing uphill, bad for general comfort.

I personally dig the 750/800cc bike category. 600's are popular, and good for the novice rider, but upgrading to a liter bike after that has always seemed strange to me. Granted, I only have one season of riding in, but with dirtbike experience as a kid, and a grounded ego as well as inflated learning curve, my 500 didn't last me as long as I had hoped...

As for looks, I ADORE the look of the 2002 Honda Interceptor. Sure, it's a sport tourer, but it will more than GO, and it looks very sweet. I personally would like to see something similar with a few factory graphics. Perhaps something along the lines of the 600RR, but the dual pipes on the Interceptor look FAR nicer.
