I'm really contemplating a new bike. I could throw some suspension on the FZ but not sure I want to sink that much more into it since I'd never see that money back when selling.

Though this is for sure more than I'd want to spend on a new bike. But the S1000R is tempting.

I feel like the BMW is probably a far more refined bike than the Yamaha. The budget/shitty suspension on my FZ-07 has put me off on Yamaha. And the 2017 S1000R can be optioned with electronic suspension and cornering ABS on top of all the standard features. It's more money for sure but goes towards a bunch of nice features.

I don't know if you can knock Yamaha for putting budget suspension on their budget sport bike.
