I would agree with you, just a show bike. While carbon fiber production costs has dropped considerably (I'm thinking pre-preg) it doesn't get around the fact that CF is still more brittle and less abrasion resistant and takes longer to produce than injection type molding plastics. The production time is probably the biggest factor for any large scale manufacturing. Personally, I wish more manufacturers still employed old geezers in greasy coveralls beating out aluminium panels for their body parts and fairings so I am obviously a bit touched in the head.
