Smile Uk member - 1078RR - Fallen in love!

Hi everyone,

junked in my 2012 Ducati Streetfighter 848 last month and picked up a 2013 1078RR. It had 996 miles on the clock, managed another 500 before the rain started!

Jesus, what a bike. It has a HP Corse full titanium system and race ECU fitted. The noise, ow the noise. I'm sure it won't be long until the police offer me some advice on it!

Anyway, i look forward to learning more from you guys!

I have a MV Factory carbon swing arm cover and Steering Dampener on order but the factory are being very slow delivering the items!

+1 on what Brian says! Welcome and enjoy. I have the full H.P. Corse and an Arrow system. H.P. Corse is a bit noisier and 'coarser' sounding but looks the bomb.

Cheers

Funny I have an 848 SF and now changing to MV

For me Ducati are going in wrong direction and have nothing I want to buy! SF is cool bike and I have done 17k. But front brakes are troublesome and I wanted a change

Love the look of that. I went for the 800rr cos I liked the triple engine and exhaust style but that looks mega. Have fun!

Hi Henrik.

I had the SF for two years and wanted to change. I loved it but having financed it over three years i could walk away or trade it in. I've never kept cars or bikes for longer than i needed so started to look around.

Nothing came close to the SF. The jap stuff just wasn't an option as i liked the way the SF needed to be ridden if that makes sense.

MV in Waterlooville have recently opened so i popped in to see what they had. That was my first mistake!

Three days later the Brutale was in the SF's place in the garage.

The bike has so many options (i forgot quick shifter too) that I couldn't say no.

The best Brutale you could buy

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.
