How about the BMW RT? It has already fared very well in two other magazine shoot outs with these same 3 bikes. Yes it is underpowered but it handles well in comparison to the others. The ZZR is a good bike but in a different class, more of a GT than an ST.

The BMW R1150RT might make a good addition to the mix...it won't win the horsepower contest, but by many accounts it's a superb sport-tourer. And it would be interesting to contrast it with the GT -- two different approaches to the sport touring genre from the same company.

Did not get to check out the options available for the ZZR, but the web site shows pictures of it with bags. Are they an available option?

How about a Road King. Harley considers it a "sport tourer".

Yes, but they aren't standard equipment, which is a requirement on a sport tourer.

The ST gets my vote. Are bags standard?
