smooth as butta?

ok so after recent incidents with my buell i'v pretty much had it. it's too old and tired. i go to fix or maintain one thing and find 3 things wrong with it. EVERY time. so i'm looking for a replacement. my initial inclination was to go with an S3. but then i really like the idea of a SS bike. but what i undoubtedly want, that the S3 has, is razor sharp smoothness everywhere. shifter, clutch, brakes, steering, suspension etc etc. complete opposite of my clunky buell. i haven't ridden a daytona but if it's as smooth as the S3 i'd scoop one up in a heart beat...except for the fact that they are few and far between and so are parts for them.(kinda the same issue as the buell) SO between the big four, who makes the smoothest, most effortless bike? looking for a SS, 600-750cc, $5-6k price range, and probably 07-09 year range.

I honestly don't have a preference or think there is that much difference between them except for the looks and body style. Just get whatever you can get the best deal on.

"Smooth" and "effortless" are incredibly subjective terms, and hard to apply to any one particular system on a motorcycle, let alone the whole bike.
