Unfortunately the ST is a bit too "sporty" for me, I can't handle the sportbike riding position for very long.
Unfortunately you are right about the market thing. People want lots of technology, and are apparently willing to pay for it. But then they turn around and complain when it breaks down, and they find out what it costs to fix it.
I for one would definitely be interested in a four cylinder Goldwing with very little technology, even at $15000, because it would likely be the last bike I would ever need to buy. But they have to build what sells, and I suppose they actually love it when that technology breaks down, as they make a fortune fixing it.
