If Yamaha placed their new 850cc triple from the FZ-09, into a touring set up, that would be something. Today's problem is that a 650 lb touring bike would almost need to be some fashion of a sport touring model, or HP crazy Americans aren't gonna buy it.

The GL500 Silverwing was a great little touring bike, but sadly wouldn't sell today. Almost cost prohibitive to manufacture and sell in its size class competitively.
