The Bosendorfer prototype illustrates the problem with
these hybrids: it was already obsolete by the prototype
stage. A Roland V-Piano gives approximately the same
performance at a fraction of the price.

The Yamaha CP33. It sells for $999.

Above prices assume no discount off street prices.

Your $1,000 limit is just below the point where we start to get into the better digital piano key actions. At that price I think there are no with Rolands "none-alpha" keys and I don't think Kawai makes anything at all for $1,000. So the CP33 is the only reasonable answer to your question.

Raise the limit to $2,000 and then there are more options. At the $2K limit aall the big companies have something to offer
