Honestly, it makes very little sense, if any at all, to ask for more power when you yourself admit that it is more power than you would ever use. Like others, I would ask for something more (or less, in the case of weight), like cruise control for the boring highway rides (I avoid them every time I can, but there are times when it is the necessary evil), better suspension etc... but all in all, I still think CT is a very good package.
It is a fun ride for sure, with the V4. I am the type that cracks the throttle open, and it is a powerhouse across the whole rev range, as we all know it to be. It is the most reliable bike you can realistically ask for. What it has in abundance is the weight, that's the most striking difference I see compared to the other bikes you mentioned Bampy. Only if it could somehow shed off some weight, not even 40 kg, but maybe 15-20, it would also feel even more powerful, due to power/weight issues.
But thinking that way, I could also lose 10 kgs and make up for that difference
It is a solid bike my friend, don't make the "mistake" I did (well, not a mistake, but I find myself riding my friends CTs more often these last few weeks).
I think my bike for this summer is gonna be either another CT or a KTM 1190. And not because of the power difference, but for the weight and the gizmos it comes with. I also like how it looks, but I'm not sure if I can pay so much extra for a European bike (my first if I end up buying one) and have nightmares if it will start fine next morning.
