What is the "Motorcycle Industry" definition of a SPORT TOURING BIKE?

If you look at some of the bikes sold and marketed as sport touring don't they ll ususally have full or close to full "sport type fairings"? Don't they all have a powerplant that mimicks a current or at least former sport bike? Don't they also at least offer hard bags as an option if not being standard issue?

Just because somebody rides cross country on a a Honda SL70 with a milk crate bunjied to the rear fender doesn't make it a ST bike.

I saw a guy run a MACK truck down the drag strip once... That doesnt mean it's a TOP FUEL DRAGSTER.
