Just curious: did you use 'r.out.tiff'?

Note that the default compression is none.
compression   TIFF file compression
                options: none,packbit,deflate
                default: none

If you set this parameter (eg to deflate), you will get smaller

(get the GeoObject extension, Add-Ons section).
