I'm not sure of the "Motorcycle Industry" definition, but here's my three sport tourers.
All are comfortable, powerful, have excellent fairings, go real fast, and handle great in the twisties.
The Sprint has an OEM pannier rack and SW-Motech top rack. I made a pannier rack and top rack for the Falco.
I'm currently fabricating a pannier rack for the big Ninja. For daily riding I prefer only a tank bag.
My former sport touring bikes included an ST 1100 ( 17 years), Concours 1000, and FJR 1300. This current crop is way more fun
ZX14R, Triumph Sprint, and Aprilia Falco
