Had a Honda 919, good bike, liked it a lot but not in the same class as my triple. CB1000 would be my next choice. That proto KTM looks the bomb! Are they going to produce that like that?

Does that translate as "It looks fantastic in the publicity photo but when you ride it up the road it might implode"? I certainly won't be trading in my S3 for anything branded with a KTM sticker

+1 on the Brutale, in red, nearly bought a 990R earlier this year but went for the speed instead.

Would be my no 2 naked bike.

If I get another naked I don't think it'll be another musclebike. Possibly a DR-Z400SM.

That KTM is mighty nice though.

another vote for the Tuono, if I could even buy one nearby, due to lack of local dealers (one of the reasons I sold my Shiver for the S3)

Tuono is lovely to ride on the open road - actually it's really lovely to ride - but in this part of the uncivilised world don't expect excellent local support after you have made the purchase. To date Triumph have delivered pretty good after-sales support for the S3 - there's a degree of comfort that the bike is produced in the UK and there is a range of dealers available. I've tried a few 'specialist' or 'niche market' bikes - usually the after-sales service is minimalist verging on non-existant. Still some of them look very pretty in the glossy adverts,
