    As I plan for better financial times, I've pondered my next bike.  The DM2 has ruined me for lesser suspension!  I have a sport-tourer and am looking at bikes in between  with less racer-crouch than my sportbikes, for the road. 
    I love faired bikes, but the nakeds offer the riding positions I desire.  So, I'm thinking Aprilia Tuono, but the new SPEED TRIPLES challenge that choice, especially with more top end power.  Triumph engineering is amazing.! 
    Let's face it, engine type matters.  I love triples, but a V4 like that would be amazing.

    My opinion...
    My next bike is a Speed Triple 1200RS or an MV Agusta Dragster. The Speed Triple for the HP and engineering, the Dragster for the unique look and the exclusivity. I tried a Speed Triple 1200RR and came away not liking the riding position and not trusting a computer to adjust the dampers while riding, it did weird sh!t on the test ride. It will probably come down to money, I can get a low mile used triple for ~$10K less than a Dragster.
