2006 Sprint ST vs 2006 Honda VFR. Which One?

Definitey the Sprint. Both are very good Sport Touring bikes, but ever since Honda added variable valves to the VFR (in 2003?), the VFR has suffered from lots of criticism re: throttle response and lumpy power delivery. The Sprint, on the other hand, was significantly updated last year and given a bigger, smoother three cylinder. The only criticisms of the Sprint seem to be engine heat managment (cooks your legs in hot weather) and poor side luggage (something Triumph was going to fix this year - not sure if they did). Plus I think the Sprint is much nicer looking - IMHO.

Hummm, new VFR next year? Any clue as to the specs? I have owned 2 (a 91 and a 96) and would not touch the V-Tech model, with chain driven cams and hideous styling...the only redeeming factor is the factory bags for the newest VFR. Honda, PLEASE give a VFR1000 that weighs under 500lbs WET, NO V-TECH, and other silly gadgets and no Flash Gordon styling.
