Re: 2013 Yoshimura limited 1K
The problem is, humans by nature are never satisfied. Suzuki gives us just a little improvement every 3 years or so. Just enough to say "this bike is better", but not enough to actually "raise the bar".
...which gives them plenty of room to improve on that bike in 2-3 years.
They could easily put out a bike that put 190hp to the wheel, stock, on pump gas. But they wont.
BMW and Kawi have been the first and only "mass produced" bikes to deviate from that mentality/MO and say "to hell with everyone, we are creating a beast".
