You may not like :-

3, the suspension could do with a bit tuning as it can be a bit bouncy if your going for it.
That's it really.
You considered the Stelvio. You may not like the hammering vibration through the bars. Vibration White Finger is a real possibility.
As always on this sort of thread you get plenty of people saying that you NEED a 1200cc monster. Well you don't. Those of us who can remember the 70s & 80s got by perfectly well with "powerful" 750s with 65bhp.
As some have suggested, get test rides on all the bikes you're considering. I think you'll like the Triumph. I always say that once you've been "tripled" you won't look back.
