New Top Gun Movie! Speedster or No Speedster?

Ok, so I know it was a replica in the first movie, but still they showed a Speedster. Now they are bringing back the movie, Tom Cruise is in it, the motorcycle is back.... But what about the Speedster? Thoughts? Should we make this a poll?

Come on, Maverick never drove a speedster, replica or not, and I don't think Kelly McGillis will be back. At the time the Ninja 900R was the hottest bike around, much more fitting for a fighter pilot than an old Speedster (no offense intended)!

I have to say she is even finer in another scene in another movie sitting in a REAL bathtub (NSFW).

Looks like Kelly McGillis was not asked to come back, replaced by Jennifer Connelly.

Jennifer is 9 years younger than Tom and, I think, is taller. I wonder if she'll be a PhD like Kelly. She's certainly better looking than Kelly.

I remember them having to get creative with the heights of Tom and Kelly during the first movie. There is once love scene in Kelly's bungalow where she was practically doing a split to get them to be eye to eye.
