I'm thinking the Honda will have the V4 torque and smooth power battles won and have lots of Honda refinement but be the porker of the bunch. Closest to "tourer" in this adventurer tourer category.
The "we try harder" Triumph will have a screaming triple and all the bells and whistles standard for a lot less than the BMW and which the Honda doesn't offer. The hooligan bike with gravel road and long distance capabilities.
The BMW will be the vibey slowpoke of the group but have the benefit of being well sorted out over many years of development. The bike that launched the genre is getting something it's had little of before: competition.
The new water-cooled BMW boxer motor, assuming that comes out next year, will likely be a huge development...wonder what the Roundel faithful will have to say about it?
