Saw one of these at the dealer yesterday. Very cool in person. Wouldn't mind it today at all.

Took a test ride on one of those a while back. Nice bike. Looks good. Did everything well. Got off of it bored senseless. Then again, I just don't enjoy riding anything powered by an inline four cylinder, sewing machine, no matter how well it works. Other than that though, if that's your thing, I think it is a nice ride.

Give that man a cigar! Sanctuary racing it is.
If I ever get done with my Z1 build (NOT documented anywhere........going to slow partly thanks to a broken wrist) it's going to look a LOT like this, only without the $4,000 hand-bent Ti exhaust system, FCR's, and sadly no Ohlins forks either. But it already has Ohlins shocks! It WILL be very sweet.

Well crap! Strike what I said about sewing machines above! A redone, early Katana 1100 is one of my few exceptions to my general rule against inline 4s. As is something along the lines of the Sanctuary bike. Older classics, reworked with modern components to bring them up to date are very different from the cookie cutters sitting on a dealer's showroom today. Those bikes are unique enough in their own right to make up for the "lack of character" of the engine layout.

Yup. One lower can in place of the two high ones on the 2012 models.

IMO, the 675 Street Triple R is the best kept secret in the motorcycle World.

"It manages to be more of everything: better for newbies, more capable for fast riders, more fun for adrenalin junkies and has one of the best engines and exhaust notes in biking. It’s a great all-rounder, no matter what your ability."

(But please do not take my word on that matter... Go ride one and see if the bike does for you what it does for me)

I wish I wasn't 6'5"
