We are talking about a 849cc motor here...

I mean don't get me wrong its GREAT for a track bike, it's a darn dream.
But do to parts costs it's a horrible stunt bike, and longer distance riding you really want your rpm a bit lower, especially with that much rotating mass.

If I had the cash to throw on a track toy, I would buy one, for now I'll keep my R6, and maybe look at a Daytona 675. But I do lots of 300 mile trips too.
