Of the naked bikes I've ridden, I'd put the Brutale above the S3. I liked it more than the Speed Triple. There two reasons I bought the triple over the Brutale though; cost of aftermarket parts and availability of OEM parts.
I think the Tuono V4 is interesting. However, my friend owns an RSV4 and I have to say, I normally don't care about gas mileage and motorcycles, but a bike should do much better on gas than a pick up.
Another bike that I put on par with the S3 was the KTM Super Duke. Really cool bike, but the Speed triple looked a bit better, IMO.
I had a Monster S4R a few bikes before the S3. While not the worst bike I ever owned, it wasn't a positive experience.
