There is also the case of wanting what you don't get. We didn't get the NT650 Hawk GT, for instance. Or the GS300. Or the VT500FR Ascot. Or the Spectre series. There have been others, but these dropped into my head first. The CB750F was only released here after lots of crying, just as the 900F only came to USA after they cried they only got the 750. When USA got the VF1000R they had cried about, they celebrated by not buying it. Same with the TDM850 and plenty others. However, IIRC the 550 class sold well in America cirka 1980, but Honda never sold the CBX550 there to compete with the GS550, GPz550 and Seca 550 for whatever reason, despite the bike usually beating the competition in European tests.
