Question why don't Japanese bike manufactures sell naked superbike in North America?

why?
do they think there is no market for it
they're so FAST and looks good...I mean doesn't look sharp, but retro.

Here are some examples...

Honda CB1300 SuperFour

You mean why dont they sell bikes like honda's 919? Or do you mean something along the lines of yamaha's offerings of the fz1? Then again suzuki puts out the sv1000 if thats more what you're thinking? or the kawasaki z1000?
