Brutale vs ...

I purchased my 2006 brutale 910 a few months ago and haven't had a chance to ride it much for a number of reasons. It is as beautiful in person as advertised but I'm curious how brute owners would compare it to others you've owned.

I have a highly modified fz1 which I love and is somewhat similar but I wanted a special and unique bike to replace my Ducati 1198 (RIP - totaled by texting teen). Brutale had a great combo of performance, looks, ergos and rareness all for $6,000. Which is funny being that I have another $1500 plus already in SPU, mirrors, shipping, grips, front blinkers, etc...

I LOVE my 910R.....there may be other bikes that do certain things better, but I have never felt more comfortably in control on any other street bike I've had the opportunity to ride.

That said, progress marches on......lot of new stuff out there I haven't ridden yet, but none of them look as good as my MV....and I don't see myself coming around every corner either.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

O owned a FZ1 and I have a 1090RR and there is no comparison. The 1090RR is so much better in every aspect

I had a B910 s 2004 which I liked very much, after coming from a Aprilia Tuono (well sorted in the end) and the Brutale felt better.
Sold the 910s for reasons ....
Anyway, bough an 2012 Aprilia Tuono V4R APRC - the bike has lots of power, riding modes, quickshift etc, was doing EVERYTHING extremely well, but
I traded it for a 2008 Brutale 1078RR - for me a much better bike, more raw, direct, no ride by wire.

So for me the Brutale rocks!

I choose a Dragster RR because I'm quirky (and so is the bike) having been away from the road bike scene for 10 years (Was MX Racing National level)

Before that I had a Benelli Tornado Tre 900 which was like a MV only alot less reliable. I sold what was left of it after half of it falling off over the Isle of Man TT 2006. The video is still on youtube somewhere

The MV is everything I wanted it to be...Im just hoping they bring out a faster version in the next year. I think I went for it as I dont like inline 4 pots and love italian bikes 'feel'. Im a twin man really but the Benelli was raw and the triple was amazing. Got the MV hoping for the same which it 70% is

Previous road bike have been;

1 x Tornado Tre
2 x RSV Mille
1 x SP1
2 x R1
4x R6
1 x SV650S

Had a ZX6R (Old G1) and a Duc 748 both for a few weeks but didnt like either so sold quick

Motocrosser from 1993-1999 & 2009-2014

Now just a keyboard warrior & road rider supporting my son in his racing

Follow me on YouTube for old races of me, current road and track racing & my son competing

My FZ1 pictured was no way as good as my 1078 brutale, the fz was much softer in every way and less focused than the brutale.

Interesting that many of you have had the FZ1. I still have my FZ1, too much money into it to sell.

MV will be treated to only the best weather days and shorter rides. The FZ will go any day, any weather, any distance. Agree that the FZ is softer more suited for longer distances.
