I occasionally ride my pals Superduke 1290 , spent a few hours on the Tuono & Triumph very kindly gave me the best part of 3 hours testing the Speed Triple RR & RS - The build quality , components & Power of these bikes is something i appreciate.
I couldn't stand the GSXS when i 1st rode it , to the point where i had to change the awful rear shock & make braking upgrades. If it works for you then sweet , I'm not in my 40's+ yet so for me i like the exhilarating speed & more importantly getting there ! me I dont want to make any changes to a bike aside from aesthetics & engine tuning (euro 4/5 omitting - within reason).
I've actually been commuting on the rsv4
never thought i would , I personally don't find it uncomfortable at all (an hours commute into London) - I cant go from that to a GSXS , i'd prefer an old s1000rr , Duke 1290 or Speed triple , maybe a Hypermotard or Yami Tracer 900gt (if i'm being as practical as i should be)
I reckon an (despite the end of line manufacturing R.i.P) old gixxer (2016+) would be a better option , probably the same price , comfortable enough (adjustable clipons could alleviate issues) & rapid
