Middleweight Three-Cylinder Engine Motorcycles- Comparison Review

One new egregious declaration is that the FZ-09's top speed is limited to 132mph max - not good.

BUT....at roughly 2/3 the price....it was faster in the 1/4 mile and 0-60 times......

That's what I'm looking for, not concerned about the 132 MPH limit.

awesome find. and even better read.

IN YOUR GARAGE?
After all the testing was done, we were all stoked on how awesome the modern all-around middleweight motorcycle has become. It’s even better now that we’ve seen displacement get into this sweet 800cc range.
And smaller displacement really is what hurt the Street Triple R in this company. Triumph has 800cc versions of this engine, and perhaps it’s time for one in this model. If you can live without the quick snap and meaty muscle of the other bikes, the Street Triple has the best chassis compromise and is a reasonable value if they don’t raise the price too much.
The MV does what MVs are supposed to do: move your body and your soul. The 798cc engine is top-end centric, and the chassis feels like magic on a back road, but the price and lack of engine-tuning refinement really hurt it when we considered what bike we wanted to ride home.
Which leaves the Yamaha. When we first heard the FZ-09’s price, we were worried that the bike would have a cheap feel or that there would be serious compromises. But the compromises are minor. Dudek summed it up well: “You really can’t go wrong with the Yamaha, especially for the money. It feels like it is pumping 1,000cc power out of the 847cc motor. The performance of the suspension may be lacking a bit compared to the others, but the trade-off for power and price is worth it. On smoother roads, the Yamaha behaves fantastic, and the riding position is best for longer rides.”
Sure, fuel capacity is a bit of an issue, but we like the bike so much and the value is so good that we just decided to live with stopping for gas more often. You’ll smile every time you top if off.

Yeah you can't really argue about it for the price youre paying the Fz-09 is a good deal.

I see the FZ09 as a better street triple, after all the reviews i've seen I can't find a reason to buy a street triple.
