New Bike Possibilities

After reminiscing with some other Redline OG's last weekend, I really want a new bike. Looking at 3 possibilities:

Aprillia Tuono 1100V4 RR
KTM 1290 DUKE
Yamaha FZ-10

I'm also going to look at the Ducati Monster, Hypermotard, BMWS1000R, Kawi Z1000, and Suzuki GSX-S1000, but the front runners are the 3 above.

Thoughts?

You can get 2-3 Z900's for the Duke price. I guess it is what you want, and what is in your wallet. I always had trouble spending over $12K out the door on a new bike, and never did, even the new GSXR 1000's.

Ride them all before you buy. I was set on getting an Aprilia RSV1000V4R until I rode it, yes engine sounds like sex but it had less trq than my first Gen RSV-R and that's what turned me away, now i ride dirt bikes pretty much exclusively. John your a twin guy I have a feeling based on your past steeds, don't ride the 1290 because you will buy it, those torques are addicting.

The 1290 Duke like Al has is a bad ass street ride for sure!
