F4 to Bruale 920

Oki guys Im getting old (29) and Mrs cant get on F4 much as its soo uncomfortable! So Brutale it is!

We tried a 1090, 1090 Corse and a 920.

She fell in love with a 920 today as it has the all in one seat which apparently only come on the 920, true? Can I put the 920 all in one seat on a 750 or 1090 (I doubt it but worth a ask)

Im happy with a 920 (Plenty of power for me), however doesn't sound as good as my F4 so will need an exhaust and a power commander (however I cant find one for a 920), isnt it the same ECU as 1090? Do they do a PC V for her?

Cheers

I had a 920 for three great years, a very underrated bike . I think the 920 was the first with the one piece seat (2011) and the later 1090 and 1090R's also have a one piece seat but the RR's still had a two piece seat, I think?
I bought some mv corse cans for it which made it sound a little better, but not amazing . Maybe an Arrow thunder pipe would unleash the proper sound?

They're power and red line sits lower than the F4, so you don't usually get that banshee wail while riding regular as you don't sit in the higher rpms as much. The one piece seat has its latch in a different location than the two piece seats, so you can't change over easily.

Speed is relative, but fast is fast.

FWIW, my wife and kids found the F4 more comfortable than the B4, and more confidence inspiring (safer) when the speeds increased.

I'd rather go fan Microtec than a PC, and there's one for sale on the forum at the moment.

Cheers guys. Donsy sadly my Mrs doesnt say the same. Im not that fast a rider I got the F4 as it was my dream since I was 14!

Doggy - What year are we talking? I cant find any with a one piece seat even a 2016 model in the showroom didnt? The mrs likes that it humps up a bit at front and stops her sliding into me when riding.

Just found a 2014 1090 with the single nice seat! Also seen some 675 and 800 with single seat (however they look far less comfy on here http://cycle-ergo.com/) So want a 4 Cylinder!

I wish I understood which ones had that seat and ones that dont?

the 1090 models are a bit friendler on the ergos -- more stretch.

try visiting mvagust.com to view the current models to get pics of the different trim levels to spot the seat setup youre looking for.

Im really digging the base 1090 in black with the neon yellow accents:

Personally I'm not a fan of the Brutale 920, 989 or 990. Not up to scratch in my opinion. I would suggest the 1090 if within your budget

^might explain why the smaller displacement 4 cyclinder brutales *may not be offered anymore in certain markets... I say "may" only cos the US site shows only one 4 cylinder brutale available for '16, the 1090RR.. UK site shows base, RR, and Corse, again only in 1090 form. That said, I have no idea what part of the globe "Warwick" is per Bikerzz's profile. Rhode Island, USA? Or perhaps someplace more worldly than my knowledge of geography..

would seem silly to offer the smaller 4 cylinders due to the sales success of the 800 models.

Yes guys. Im in UK

I have no need for power 920cc plenty! However I do find it looking rather plain! After reading reviews I defiantly want a newer one (920,990 or 1090) and I dont like the look of the 3 cylinder ones!

The looks of the 1090RR do draw me however they are ALOT more money for looks alone (And a worse seat for Mrs on back)

drunkentrader - Are you sure? Thats not true according to http://cycle-ergo.com/
