2011 Naked Middleweights Shootout

Motorcycle.com lets it rip on 4 streetfighters, the BMW F800R, Aprilia Shiver, Triumph Street Triple R, and the Yamaha FZ8. The Ducati Monster 796 was late to the party, and was prevented from joining. I like how they call them unfaired funsters, check out the comparison.
