You say that now. I said the same thing a long time ago. If you don't ride a lot of miles/distance then yeah no need for a touring bike.

I would consider an FZ6 as a light touring bike. Doesn't have the seat or the space for long long trips but you can ride 500 miles or so on it no sweat.

I know they look ugly and I agree but that kinda stuff goes out the window once you ride one you actually like.

I have a Aprilia SR50 factory I have been thinking about selling. I know it looks nothing like a Ruckus but it beats it in top speed, acceleration, MPG, handling, and stopping. I just had a new Malossi crank and top end installed 300 miles ago.

Looks like this roughly...
