Yep she is a tad portly however still lighter then say the ST1300 by quite a bit. This segment of bikes isn't about weight in my opinion, none of them are light. If you want a lighter bike there are other options. Its all about how it will handle, you can hide the weight once in motion, its the moving it around the garage that can be a bear.
Personally I like the looks but I like the looks of the RT and they could be siblings. However the triple is the clincher for me if it runs like all the recent trips.......I'm not in the market either as of now for a bike this big but if I was it would be on the short list. For now my F800S does everything I need it to. Perfect for running around town and can go on the occasionally long distance run as well.......
