True but you list it as comparable to a Ninja650. It'll leave a Ninja650 in the dust and the ST's throttle is very touchy. Even experienced riders have trouble with being slapped in the face by the ST's speedo. I'd consider it a bike for very experienced riders with zero points on their drivers licenses.

I appreciate various perspectives, but to say experienced riders have trouble controlling a Street Triple is a bit nutty.
