I thought you were a boxer who now was a coah- Prof[essor] Fighter.
The first ones have been conversion in england in the early 80's using sportsbikes. (Racers who did not wanted to replace damaged cowlings on and on, just left them off, later some shops started to built that look.
Ducati used that term about 20 years later...
In my eyes, naked bikes are just without cowlings, could be a touring machine too, streetfighters have to be racebikes, mostly 4cylinder like FZR, GSX-R, CBR,...
Check out Harris, Spondon or MOKO and you know what I mean.

Boxer??? How do you think that?
