Check out the new naked bike from Suzuki to challenge the Bandits. GSXR1000 K5 engine, traction control, ABS, USD forks. Like a big GSR750

Looks a bit like a heavy duty Gladius.

I don't like the look of the current crop of nakeds, not that they suit me anyway.

I could live with the faired version if it turns out to be a great bike.

There are better reviews around and I actually thought I remembered one from this forum ( scratch scratch).  The specs look good and Suzuki looks like they are making a genuine effort to compete with Kawasaki (Ninja 1000 and Z1000).  Interestingly they picked the motor from the 2005 - 2008 GSX1000 because it was more suited to the sports-tourer role.
