I'm basically searching for a poor man's Multistrada. Not interested in doing any off road stuff. I'm more likely to end up at a track day than I am off road.
The 1050 Tiger fits the bill I would say. I put an Ohlins shock, Race Tech internals in the forks, Speed Triple bars, a pipe and air box work and it was a fine motorcycle. That engine is one of the greats.
It's a lot softer and less focused than the Multistrada (the Tigers' weakness in comparison), I think we're all hoping the Sport has corrected that.
