The Super Duke just turns me off. I don't like Twin's, V or not.
Its design is trying too hard to be aggressive.
And the electronics is not good enough to keep that engine in check.
One of my friends got a new Super Duke and he got issues, something about wheel alignments.

I would have bought the Tuono in a heartbeat if it didn't have a few flaws.
No fuel gauge (wtf on a 2018 bike?) and no cruise control and heated grips.
For a bike to commute on that is just a deal breaker.

BMW is really shooting themselves in the foot with the S1KR & RR.
Design wise they are quite old, and in dire need of a make over.
A 2018 bike not being sold without a proper LCD screen on a premium bike is just bad.

I'm kinda upset on Yamaha, most of their bikes looks to be built from random parts.
Lots of it doesn't fit right. I have the impression of Yamaha if it isn't an R1/6/3 then they don't really
put as much effort into it.

And lets not forget the elephant in the room, which so many people hates and is hard to measures.
Electronics. Here Aprilia and BMW is in a league of their own.
About a month ago, I had a very nasty incident and my TC turned that whole event from a disaster to no big deal. Good electronics is never noticed, but always watching in the background.
