If moneys not the deciding factor and you arn't doing any dirt/gravel riding, then it sounds like the tiger, fjr or the ST would be a great choice. Which one comes down to you..

To be honest it would be hard to name a bad bike for you as we do not know several important reason like
Age
Experience
Previous bikes
Size
Intended use ( commuting,touring ,two up , dirt ,? )
Expectations ( are you going to keep it for 3 mths or 3 years )

Try the Tiger before you buy

I've had a Triumph Speed Triple for a year now and love the bike.

I've had a crazy notion of eventually also owning the Tiger, so last weekend I took advantage of the Triumph demo truck, when it visited Issaquah, WA. Honestly, I was underwhelmed, it was a competent bike but not that inspiring.

The other Triumph I tried was the Sprint ST and it was a real kick in the pants, like the Speed3 in terms of the Wicked Fun factor but also well set up for sport-touring. Suggest you try the Sprint ST and the FJR before buying anything...
