Sportsbikes - Are they getting too fast?

Since their appearance Sportsbikes have been the pinnacle of speed and power in the motorcycling world but are they getting too fast?

The roads we ride haven't changed; neither have the speed limits so why do we need bikes brandishing over 200mph top speeds? I think the stance taken by manufacturers is that bikes are always going to get better, which in turn means faster too.

I just hope that all the riders out there buy machines that they can handle, I mean the new Yamaha R1 and the Kawasaki Ninja H2 are claimed to be insane on top speed and power, for an everyday rider sitting down on one of them the challenge of just riding the thing could be way too much.

Needless to say I'm excited about the new bikes on the horizon, just need to remember a twist of that right hand could get me a lot further up the road...a lot quicker...
