One point I'd like to add is that if I had a highly qualified mechanic near me I would add a V4 Tuono (I prefer the RSV4 since I love my s1000r) in an instant. They are fantastic bikes with great handling and feel. The sound is just gravy on top :)
I for that matter never would keep a Euro bike as my only bike. And for that matter, the ideal number of bikes you should own is n+1, where n >= 1 :745:
I have 6 right now.. its a disease  :112:

I test rode the '18 tuono just prior to getting the skr. Would totally agree with others regarding fueling in the the lower range. It was completely stock. Other than that and not having a fuel gauge, I really liked it. Ergos for me were at least as comfortable as the skr.  I believe the '21 will be sporting a new ecu with friendlier mapping low down. a fuel gauge and better ergos especially on the rr model. I am anxiously waiting for the local dealer to get them in inventory. They say sometime in June.
All that to say, I love my bmw and would have a really hard time putting it to pasture but I have had an itch for a V4 that still hasn't been scratched and keeping 2 naked's  is unfortunately not an option for me. As Windyrun said the rsv4 would make a great teammate with the sk , however the plate fees on that bike here would be are pushing 2 000 CAD a year as opposed to 700 CAD for a naked. Choices, choices, choices !
 On another note, anyone had a chance to ride the aprillia middleweight 660 models? Reading some great reviews online.

No but I've read many reviews by owners of the ktm 890r (written by tuono riders) and they love them!!

That's on my list to test ride when I get some time, I've a hankering for something a bit smaller and lighter as well as the Beemer but still with a bit of go in it.

The problem is the smaller bike always feels underwhelming in comparison.

I had a 675 Street Triple a couple of years ago, nice, light, easy to ride but just really boring.

I had a sat on a new 1100 yesterday , the bars are much more leant forward than the R (which im sure would be an easy fix with risers) but the foot rests are in much too high a position for me, I can just about tolerate the Rs footrest position but the Tuono I think is to closed based on the race rep for me to consider, I need an all day comfy roadbike and the 1100, for me, isnt it.

I see this post is still going. Not sure when I started it, but since then I purchased a 2021 Triumph Street Triple RS and it is a fabulous bike. I sold the KTM 790 Duke and hated it.  The Street triple is so small, light and nimble and the riding position is perfect for me.  I'm closer to the bars than on the BMW, so not so bent over.  It's not as fast as the BMW with 121HP, but it's definitely quick. I am not riding much and have thought about selling the BMW S1000R.  I put risers on the bars and that helped, but the reach is longer and still pretty sporty, but nothing like a pure sport bike. I prefer riding the Street Triple, but unsure what I will do.  That would be the bike I would keep if I got it down to one bike.  But I have all good things to say about the S1000R - so smooth, fast, very smooth quick shifter and great handling. Love the sound it makes.  Just a really well built bike.    No interest in the Aprila Tuono.  No dealers in my area, don't like the looks and it is more sporty than the BMW.

The new tuono (standard version-not factory) specs say the bars are higher and the pegs are lower so the new one may interest those looking for less of an rsv4 with bars (instead of clip-ons).

Looks like it is more touring friendly. Better ergos, taller screen and bars, grab rails for the pillion and luggage options to boot. Sort a reminds me of the XR a bit.

That is the one I sat on...may be different to previous models but in comparison to the 1000R, its a lot more tighter & sportsbike focused.
