I totally forgot about the Touno! Love that bike, but not naked enough for me. Agree with all the comments related to the 1098. Drove my buddies 1098 and it's just constantly daring you for more at each gear. I never felt a loss of torque.
Someone raised a good point of ease of being aggressive. I feel the 848 SF requires a lot more attention than the other bikes mentioned. I also understand that rider ability is at play here. I still get a fair amount of anxiety on exit ramp loops and the potential to lose the line if you don't get the throttle control exactly right. Which can simply be just poor throttle control. On the other hand, most other motorcycles I've ridden have more predictable throttle response and smooth on, off transitions.
Any thoughts on this?
