SMH at those that believe the 5th is better. Linked brakes? are you kidding me. I have one and those are going the way side ASAP..... Granted the 5th gen has a bit more long legginess to it over the 4th being a tad more sport, so pick your poison, FI is over rated. a clean well taken care of 4th gen is a great bike. neither one is bad, just one leans more one way over the other. Now had Honda installed the 5thgen motor in the 4th you'd have a winner, almost, still not a 1000cc.
