Default front sprocket removal

Is there a secret or does it just take a lot of torque

Just did my Brutale . Tried a few things but ended up hiring a electric impact wrench which did it in 5 seconds. It was that easy im going to buy my own

The trick is to remove the nut while the chain is still there.

Yes, very good.

Torque the front sprocket nut to 140 Nm and the manual says add Loctite 243.
The phonic wheel is torqued to 8 Nm, again with Loctite 243.

Not sure whether your having an issue getting the retaining nut off or the speed sensor ?

The nut should come off using the normal "Shock & Awe" and the speed sensor just needs a little spray of WD40, wait a while and tap it very gentely with soft hammer.. Should come off.

Was using an air gun with 150 psi and it would not come off. Finally used a torch to heat it and melt the loctite and presto it's loose
