I agree with Cakeeater. Most of whats considered the sport tour bike selection is a bit overkill. If they made a more middleweight version that would suit alot of us better.......wait......they did, and it didnt sell well enough in the USA.
Not to big
Not to heavy
No heat thrown off at the rider, with excellent aerodynamics
Not to cramped or nervous
Kinda the Acura mid size luxury model of the Honda line. Midway between a ST1100 and a Goldwing in the way it rides.
Think of it as a easy going more touring oriented , lighter and smaller alternative to a ST . Also zero maintenance except oil changes.
