I had a days ride on the MT recently, it was fun to try it out.
My R3 riding position is much sportier than stock, but the MT felt like it was a fair bit more upright than stock R3. I could be wrong though, my R3 hasn't been stock for a good 15k miles. The upright position of the MT made my back ache after a few hours
The MT didn't feel like it had as much gust to it, but that could be a perceived thing, due to my mods on my R3 making it feel quicker.
