I don't know. I probably take a 999 if you really insisted on giving it to me.

Default Get the ST3

I have an '04 ST3 (last of the dry clutch models), and it's a great bike. You won't regret getting one. Check out the CycleCat bars, which allow you to change your wrist angles, lever angles, and handle height. People talk about the handlebars being too low, but often the problem is actually the angle at which you grip the bar-ends, and CycleCat has the only system I know of that allows you to change all the important variables to get the perfect fit.



Best thing about the ST3, compared to other sport-tourers, is the power characteristics of the engine. Even though other bikes might have more ultimate power, it is easy to ride the ST3 quickly and smoothly, since you can just roll off on the throttle to slow entering a corner, and then give steady or slightly rising throttle as you need. If you have a smooth riding style, then this is the bike.

80 % of nothing still equals nothing.
