ok, to put some (my) perspective on this to inform future buyers: i came from inline 4's, an 07 FJR w 46k miles and 2 R1's, an 08 and a 14, each over 10k miles. The triple will not overwhelm you when downsizing from 4 cylinders to 3.
But like everything it's all a mater of tradeoffs. It was a rare occurrence when i could unwind my R1 in anything past 3rd gear. It was so fun at high RPM's but they just arent achievable on the street without serious risk of "performance award" citation. The FJR just cruised effortlessly down the highway at 80+ mph and could go all day at that pace and could easily "rev" it to over 120 with plenty to spare.
But I now ride a Tracer 900 GT w maybe 13k miles And love it more because I use 90%+ of the rev range on a regular basis. I'm always in A mode unless tight twisties, then im in Std. The bike runs much cooler, the engine is much narrower than an inline 4. The overall bike is fast, effortless to ride, and fun in the twisties.
