I've had my ST3 since 09 & put 12,000 mi on it. I love the bike dearly and will keep it till it's an antique, BUT my Husqvarna SM610 (with a big bore kit/cam) will kill it handling twisties. It's like a 56hp bicycle. On the street the power of SM is very useable, unlike the ST3.
This is the kind of feedback I was hoping to get. I've always wanted a sumo, but could never justify it. If I could find one of these dirt cheap, I just may throw it into a corner of the garage for the trips to the mountains.
Not a criticism, just a question, considering I think the Street Triple R power is immensely pliable on the road compared to the few other bikes I have ridden (esp. Jap 4-cylinders), what is your rationale for this statement? Is it just that since it has only 56 bhp you can use more of the powerband more of the time? I could understand that, except the StripleR's torque availability everywhere makes up for not needing to go to redline hardly ever in regular traffic driving. Just trying to understand
