I have a buddy with a Tiger. He loves it and only stranded him twice in the first 10k miles.
It makes MY logic that as a 1 bike owner the Ninja is the right one for me. It's gotta do everything from get groceries to track time relatively well. Same as my old VFRs that won this (newly invented) category for 10+ years.
They do have an Oscar for this. It's called the "lifetime achievement award."
I gave up on these lists when Dirt Rider magazine called the Cannondale dirt bike their "Bike of the year". It was funny because the bike never ran long enough for them to test. It blew a hole in its case after the electric start jammed. I saw that. Second, it was so bad, the company had to file for bankruptcy.
