I currently have a Fazer 800 which I love but I'm thinking of moving up (or at least getting her a sister...) Up until recently my choice was basically an FZ-10 or a Tuono Factory. I've sat on both and find I feel more at home on the FZ-10 (its ergos don't seem too far from the FZ8S).

I see Yamaha has moved to fight the Tuono on more even terms with the FZ-10SP and that'd be the way I'd go but I'm not sure the bike is coming to Canada. One of my local dealers (also an Aprilia dealer as it turns out) he wasn't actually aware of the SP. Too early maybe?

I've lurked on Aprilia forums and am unimpressed with the reliability record of the Tuono; it's a sweet bike but I don't think I could enjoy a bike I couldn't trust. My FZ8S has been a rock and, being a Yamaha, I expect a '10 to be just as reliable.

Hope you don't mind me lurking here and posting once in a while as I continue to try to decide :)

Lurk all you want,lol. Another thing people forget is the loooongservice intervals the Yamaha's have for the valve adjustments. I have always noticed the high up keep of hardleys, and Euro bikes vrs the Japanese bikes. Probably why I've owned only Japanese bikes, my 2017 FZ10 is my 30th street bike since 1973. Cost of operating and maintenance is lower. It's your decision in the end though.
