Compared to the bikes you are comparing with (all supersports/race replicas) yes our bikes are bigger...
But they are not the same type of bike. Ours are more upright bikes with a longer wheelbase (the naked is lower than the bikes you mention) and the extra width is due simply to having proper bars not clip-ons
As the launch said - these are designed for ex GSX-R owners who have grown up and need a bike with a more relaxed (upright) seating position
If you look at closer rivals - Z1000, Ninja 1000, MT-10 etc they all have a similar or greater width, all are heavier, all have less ground clearance and other dimensions are similar
