Roll on. I have a ST1300 and a FJR 1300. My buddy owns a ST as well. We did a 50MPH roll on and the ST hung with the FJR to almost 90. The FJR superior HP took over. I knew the ST had great mid range but I did not expect a bike which is almost 100 lbs heavier and down on HP to run side by side like that. That's a tribute to Honda engineering. Having said that the FJR is a beast from 80 to 145. It's not the fastest bike bike I have ridden, but it sure feels like it. At 76 years old I still enjoy watching the road get narrow. Both are great bikes for different reasons.If any of you have a similar experience i would like to hear it.

I know this is an old thread, but I do have both a Superduke GT and FJR (and an 1199 Panigale). Yes, the Superduke GT will destroy an FJR. It has much more midrange torque and it weighs over 150 lbs less. Interestingly, the 1199 does not have great midrange, but when it hits 7,000 rpm it's really fast.

MWO, I had an ST1300 15 years ago that I replaced with my first FJR. I was not a big fan of the ST. It's a nice bike, but not enough "Sport" in the Sport Touring.
