Where are the middle weight sport tourers

My 2000 VFR with 130k km still gives me a thrill but my loyalty will not last forever. I love the niche of a middle weight sport tourer but with modern day features. Unfortunately this segment of the market has been neglected. Honda dropped the ball on the future of the VFR. The market has shifted to inseam challenged ADV sport tourers. My cage is a SUV and I do not want one for two wheels. The Ninja 10000 is nice but missing comfort features and the BMW R1200 RS has everything fully loaded but is out of my price range. What I am looking for is around 125 hp with 80 ft/lbs of torque in a sport oriented sport tourer. There were choices in the past, is this segment lost?
