A new 850cc with 3 cylinders to replace the 4-cylinder and heavier FZ8, between the 675 Street Triple and the Z1000 for engine size, but with a lower price than both.
The back turn signals and license plate are far back, for easily adding saddlebags:

The FZ-09 looks to be the new naked king!
420lbs wet, good amount of torque, proper suspension... Won't take much to be better than anything from Kawasaki, Honda & Suzuki, should be better than even the Triumph STR, which is saying quite a bit.

From what I have seen so far, the Street Triple R comes with a better suspension, but there may eventually be an upgraded R version for the FZ-09.

The new Indians from Polaris/Victory are also coming soon, with $19,000 to $24,000 prices.
