Light, torquey, comfortable, with 200 mile range. I dare you to find another bike that compares.
+1 I test rode a dozen bikes. Anything better than the 919 was out of my price range.

Bandits are also close but way heavier.

The FZ09 looks like a contender but will only have a 150 mile or so range.
The closest bike to the 919 I've ridden was the 1050 Tiger. It was twice the money and not as dependable.
