Upgrade from M821

My 821 was totaled so I am considering a 15 Monster 1200 S or a 2017 Street Triple RS? Honest opinions? Track days are really not a concern for me - most of my riding are commuting and the weekend twisities with friends. The features of the Street Triple have caught my attention but I can't shake the sexiness and character of the monster. Please help me haha

From my personal experience if you daily ride, get the Triumph, if you weekend cruise get the Monster. I have been using Ducati's to daily ride, usually 7000 miles/year. I just purchased a new Monster 1200 R and I have been to the dealer more with a new bike than I have with 3 prior bikes. I am seriously considering moving to a different brand. Ducati is great...just not the most reliable when you need it to be.
