A 2010 Street Triple R was the bike I chose, last year over a F800R, Hypermotard, Multistrada and FZ09. .

Leads in every comparison, reliable, affordable, etc...

I'm not a Triumph fan-boy but I've put 9k miles on the StRiple, in the last 12 Months and I absolutely love riding this bike.

Middle Weight BMW?

BMW had one. It met all of your criteria except for HP. It didn't sell well in the USA so they only imported for two years. I speak of the BMW R850R. A very nice bike. I am not selling mine.

They tried ( half ass attempt) with their parallel twin.

I am sure if they did a newer liquid cooled flat twin and their inline 4 it would do better .
