2012 Tuono V4R APRC 14,999 USD

If I were buying a new bike today I'd be negotiating for the Tuono.
Yah prove is dropping. I love my speed R...Tuono was fun tho

Don't regret buying the Triumph but often think it would be nice to own something a little more exotic.

I agree the Benellis are attractive. Haven't ridden them but am curious whether the acquisition by Chinese investor has affected build and overall quality?

Here's some of my dyno graphs to chew on to keep the discussion going

2008 KTM Superduke R



2010 Ducati SF S



2010 KTM RC8R Akrapovic L.E.



At this point you could add some speculation about the new Superduke R.....

All very interesting; but...

a) How does this relate to the original question?

and
b) What is the point of having WAY more power than you can actually use on the street? (unless, of course, you do your riding on a track)

All joking aside, those are nice curves.

As some have already commented, it is a very open question from the op and thus can be very subjective to compare apples and oranges.

I was merely showing real world torque graphs on some other nakid bikes for discussion. I never did dyno my Speedy, but as others have commented and shown the torque curve is as flat as a pre teen.

I have my opinions on which bikes I enjoyed and which ones I didn't. Bikes aside and only torque curves the Speedy is tough to beat on the street.

Too much power for the street is also subjective. In reality you could argue that with most of the bikes on the road I suppose.

Alot of that comes down to where you are, conditions and ones ability including the ability to know your limits. As I am sure you know a track day or some type of closed course instruction is a fabulous tool that is transparent back to the street.
On the other hand the BMW s1000rr seems to come to my mind for the way too much power to use on the street that bike is mind blowing, but to each his own.

Nice curves indeed Leo

Only other naked I can think of is the SV1000. Haven't rode one but I have rode a TL1000 and didn't like it.
