What the hell does "more than 1 pot" mean? Plane of Tranquility? You will not find any bike that compares in terms of reliability/low cost of ownership/price. You have already crossed off everything that is near the same category, so it seems that a 2012 strom is the only choice unless you want to make some crazy custom, like combining two junked bikes (a cb500 motor into an xr650l frame). The cb500 may be of interest to you or if you can get a modern Transalp in Canada. ...or in reliability/cost of ownership. Nothing really beats a JP bike in terms of reliability and low cost of ownership. The Triumph is probably closest to a strom in that regard, but still a fair bit off. Yes, the euro bikes are way better than they use to be in that regard, but still not nearly as hassle free as a JP made bike. If the JP makers were to offer a modernized Africa Twin style, then the strom would lose its place as the sensible mid sized JP ADV bike, but until then, it is the only choice if you want bulllet proof reliability/ low cost of ownership.
