Jeff, one other thing about your list. The Griso is definitely not considered a sport tourer; MG makes a bike called the Norge that competes in that space. The Griso is a little hard to define. In most ways it is a naked standard, competing with the likes of the Ducati GT1000, and Monster, the Triumph Speed Triple and maybe even a Yamaha FZ-1. On the other hand it sits a little lower than those bikes and has been compared to power cruisers such as the V Rod, the V Max, or even the new Ducati Diavel. Nobody who rides a Griso 8V speaks of a lack of power, but it certainly isn’t a rocket like the ST, the Diavel or the two Yamahas I mentioned. In retrospect I think it might be best described as the gorgeous, iconoclastic, offspring of a V Rod and a Monster.
