Electronic keyboards are ridiculously piano-like. I almost added "these days", but I just gave away a +20 year old Yamaha Keyboard (88-keys) that was incredible. Keyboards "these days" must be phenomenal. If you've ever taken piano lessons in a classroom, the keyboards are always electronic.
My old Yamaha keyboard had built-in lessons, hundreds of voices, drum kits, metronome, a foot pedal for sustain, headphone jack, and more. The keys were pressure-sensitive (tap soft for pianissimo, hard for forte, and plenty in-between). I could record a melody from a duet on the keyboard and play along on guitar. Keyboard cost a few hundred $$$. You can take your keyboard just about anywhere, EASILY. (Mine ran on D batteries when not plugged in).
If you want a real piano: Thousands of $$$$. Moving expenses. Maintenance. Can't take it to your friends house for a jam. You only get one sound = "piano". Touch a key and EVERYBODY knows (no silent practice). You need space for it and you're practically married to it. Ugh.
For me, more of the excitement comes from making music, and the wonderful sounding possibilities of a decent electronic keyboard are myriad.
EDIT - Don't get me wrong, I would love to have a real piano! Just pushing back a bit on the idea that there may be less appeal because an instrument isn't made from wood. I think there is tons more appeal from an electronic keyboard. Would I want a guitar that is played by pushing buttons, like a video game? Not so much. A piano, however, is actually played by pushing buttons and modern electronic keyboards simulate that perfectly.
