Hypermotard 1100. I honestly didn't think I would like it, but damn if the bike isn't a blast. The DS1000 motor is PERFECT for the streets. Lot's of torque (76 lb-ft), and you don't need to rev the crap out of it to make power. With a few adjustments, the bike handles very well, and feels light and nimble. Not proper SuperMoto nimble, but very easy to ride.

The build quality is very nice. when you sit on it, and move it around, it feels like it's milled from a solid block of aluminum. The older 1100 models from base to S, came with very nice components too, like fully adjustable suspenders, Brembo radial MCs, Marchesini wheels.. The later 821 base model doesn't even come with adjustable forks.

i'm sure the 1100 EVO models are even better (lighter) but for the $, the 1100 is pretty good!

I am also considering touring on mine. I have a DP seat, and the thing is pretty comfy.

Rode around on a Hypermotard 1100 yesterday. Fun bike. BUT, I don't imagine it'd be fun after 20 miles of riding.

I really just want a Triumph Scrambler...

That engine sucks so bad. When I rode my dad's it felt like driving a Civic, he has either a 2003 or a 2006 I forgot. Like, what is throttle response even, amirite Yamaha?

Huh?
I thought mine was stock and it's fine. It's not even sluggish at 8Krpm or higher
But what do I know it's my first bike.

Is that what inline fours run like?! I maybe didn't go to the upper fifth of the RPM range but all I remember is going 'fuck this' in my helmet repeatedly.

Having said that I only have actual experience on V-twins and singles. I figured out a long time ago (even before I test rode any bikes) that is the power delivery scheme I will like the most. First bike was a 650 twin, then a 654 single, now a 999 twin again.

Well it's got small cylinders. 4 of them but small it's definitely not a torque monster. I learned to like the screaming.

I actually can't wait to compare it to one of the engines you mentioned
