Too much $$$$. It’s a 15 year old bike. Low mileage and bits have value, but not that much.

Thanks! Yeah, I'm having a hard time even justifying $5000. From what I've been reading here so far it seems a 08-10 would be way less work to get feeling more modern (suspension, brakes, stator, r/r, etc.)

Just found a '14 for the same price the next state over.

You are correct. I wouldn’t pay 5k either. And you’re right about upgrades in the 2008 and up years. Don’t let the fever of a new toy overwhelm your logic. It happens to me all the time.

When I was done with my '06 Tuono R, which I really liked but went through 2 stators in 10,000 miles so I sold it. I rode 5-6 bikes. The Tuono V4 and the BMW S1000R were the most impressive. I wanted to get the Tuono but was put off by my previous experience. The BMW was very impressive, but $4K more than the 2014 Triumph Speed Triple which I bought. I have been very pleased with the SPD!

Also,

Anyone have thoughts between this and the Tuono?
I currently have a 2010 SE speed triple and a 2018 Tuono Factory. Love both bikes, for different reasons. The triple was the apex predator naked back in 2010 and is just such a pure experience, no electonics,no abs, no quickshifter etc. But an absolute joy.
The Tuono is a beast, bristling with electronics, that V4 note is unmatched, and puts a smile on my face every time.
Every time I'm on either bike I don't wish I was on the other, that's why I've kept them both. So I'm a huge fan of both. However, I've had the triple for 10 years and the maintenance cost have been negligible. The Tuono has only 3K on it, so I'm sure that those costs will mount as the miles climb.
But for $7500, you can get a much newer triple. Not sure where the $7500 would land you on the Tuono, years wise.

Thanks for the feedback, this definitely reflects what I think so far from what i've been reading. Prices have been a bit crazy here in SoCal lately, i've seen a few 2018 Tuono RR's going for $12-17.
