As the Daytona 675 R is to the Street Triple R so to should there be a Daytona 1050 R to the Speed Triple R. Or would an all new Sprint 1050 R be a better name? (GT with side cases, ST without)

Exactly! I loved my sprint, but the S3r is just GOLDEN in everyway.

Do you mean the Ducati "Streetfighter S" of the "Streetfighter 848"?

Given a choice I would take the Street Triple R, however my favorite "liter" size street fighter or naked is the Aprila Tuono V4.

I love the speed triple but the ST is more useful for us commuters.
