As I refered to them, the Sprint belongs in a conversation with the VFR. It's ergos are good for long sport rides, but I would not attempt a cross country run on either the Sprint or VFR.
VFR is just a reference to a bike that people know.
-- as far as sport touring (ST), the VFR, Sprint and several others are far more sport than touring.
FJR is another reference to a well known bike.
-- as far as sport touring (ST), the FJR type tourers are far more touring than sport.
The FJR is to me... younger man's GoldWing. It can hustle, but it was more built to be a comfy tourer.
The Tiger has Dual Sport Suspension. SO it is super long travel and the bike stock used to feel like it was floating ('06 model and previous).
Mine has been changed with fork oil weight and height to give it a much more firm feel, but it still feels awesome heading down the interstate. It is half faired, so the rider gets some winde protection, but not as much as other Sport Tourers.
And the Tiger falls into that Adventurer tourer realm.
Here is how that sentence should have read...
"I liked the Sprint ST, however due to the long travel suspension on the Tiger, I chose the Tiger. However, the Sprint was on my list of bikes I was interested in."
