I decided to trade my F800R today for a S1000R. I've got to say the F800R is my favorite bike of all time for street / canyon riding. Very hard to part with but I loved my RR which I sold last year due to my old age my body couldn't take it anymore. When I sold it I bought a 2013 Tuono and I really like it but I couldn't exercise any self control when it comes to the S1000R, just have to have one. I'm going to let the F800R go and keep both the Tuono and the S1000R, for a while anyway.

I too had the V4 Tuono, loved it and your right about needing self control, I just wanted to wring its neck every time I rode it. I've done about 3,500 km on the S1000R and I'm finding I tend to cruise around on it without drawing as much attention to myself, but when required it provides just as much entertainment just without the sweet symphony of the V4.

No dealer network within a reasonable distance from the house. I love Tuonos, but I can't take a chance on one, since it's nearly a 400 mile round trip.

I have a dealer with a '13 Tuono for under 12 like two blocks away.....

....the only thing keeping me from snapping the damn thing up is the fuel range.

You got that right, the best I've gotten out of a tank was 93 miles. That was on fumes as the fuel light had been on for about 20 miles.

Local dealer has a white and blue ... but not demo for another week. Can't wait to ride this thing.... sat on it a bit more and feels pretty good but the ride will be the key.

In fact in the MCN review it comes in ahead of the BMW but behind the Aprilia Tuono because they like the flexibility of the Tuono's electronics better. In the 1000PS review the say the BMW is the safer, better overall value but the SDR is the bike to buy if you only have one ride left in life. Also, every review I've read so far says the SDR fuels very well. Maybe not as well as the BMW but leagues better than the old 990 and most other performance twins for that matter. Unfortunately, I can't afford to buy them both but I can't wait to try them both because I think they're both going to be amazing bikes.

Thanks.
People pay way too much attention to what's written in these mag reviews/shootouts/comparisons etc..

I've stopped to buy ANY motorcycle magazine 16 years ago. Especially german magazines and in particular EVERYTHING from the german "Motor Presse Stuttgart", i.e. "Motorrad", "PS" etc.
Worthless bullshit write-up's for the most part. New bike comes out, everyghing is favourable, four months later the reviews suddenly get a bit worse, and eight months later the bike is a POS, especially if it's a shootout against a BMW.
The exact same scheme, year in, year out.

If you're intrested in some bikes you have to do the reviews/comparisons yourself. Go to a dealership and ride the damn thing. Of course if you don't have the opportunity to do so you'll have to rely on reviews etc. - but then again, if you can wait a couple of months places like ADV etc. will give you better and way more detailed reviews of a particular bike than every motorcycle magazine.

In my opinion the only moto jouro/reviewer that was really worth reading here in Europe was Kevin Ash, may he rest in peace.

Does anyone know if the S1000R brake controller/ecu is the same (or same family) as the Bosch unit in the KTM 1190?

I'm asking because with all the rave reviews the MSC (Motorcycle Stability Control) is getting, I'd like an idea of the possibility/feasibility of having it be something that can be added to to the bike (as it was for the 2013 1190 Adventures).

I have 2 different suppliers telling me levers for the new R are the same as the RR levers and another supplier saying they are wrong, the R is a different lever from the RR. Anyone changed theirs and know?

This bike is on my radar.

Not enough twisty roads around here for it, but the magic suspension and motor are appealing. Plus the cruise makes it seem much more tourable. I've got an RT now, and I want a more visceral experience.

Just did mine this weekend. The clutch lever is not the same. I was able to modify it to get it to work.

Damn, I ordered a set of Pazzos today and asked them several times if they were absolutely sure the RR were the same to which they said they were positive.

I really like your Wunderlick tank bag. Does it not interfere with your bars?
