Trouble with the TS is it's in limbo, not cheap but not expensive,
on one hand The Yamaha MT09 is considerable cheaper and the pundits would say value for money against the TS (same category)
YES YES I know the TS is a way better bike but it's more money and not as "sharp " looking  :010: IMO
but it can't really compete with the Multi or 1000XR so in reality it's in a loosing fight on both counts........................................................
...  :015: :164:

Just re read post and the  :010: was directed at the Yam by the way not the TS, knew what I meant but reads wrong  :138:

The Sprint GT never made it to the US either and that ended up being the end of the Sprint line.

I didn't read every post in this long thread, so apologies if this has already been stated, but the Sprint GT did come to the USA as a 1-year model, 2011.  I looked at and test rode one while I was looking for a T1050 ... FWIW.
