Rider Comparo: 2015 Aprilia Tuono V4 R APRC ABS, 2015 BMW S 1000 R, 2015 KTM 1290 Super Duke R

When the radical, Hayabusa-based Suzuki B-King debuted for 2008, it was the very definition of excess, a naked sportbike that made 145 rear-wheel horsepower and weighed 572 pounds wet. These three from Europe clock in at more than 150 horsepower with curb weights well below 500 pounds, knocking the B-King off its throne. But they aren’t bucking broncos, they’re civilized steeds with state-of-the-art electronics that manage power delivery, chassis dynamics, braking control and more.
