I'll second pres589's suggestion of the sv650. I own a curvy 01 SV and it sounds good, has plenty of torques, and has over 42,000 miles on it. The other advantages, are its light weight, and how narrow it is which helps garage space.

What about the new Yamaha R3? It might fit the bill except being only 2 cylinders. It is likely the most rev happy, small displacement bike out now. But it doesn't have the styling. I wouldn't be surprised if they did an FZ-03 soon.

Define how retro. Classic UJM retro? Brit bike look? 80's sport bike?

And I was also going to suggest the CB-1, assuming that you can find one and then fit on it.

This is my old bike as it sits today, in my friend's shop, covered in Kydex dust.
