910R to ?

I had a 910R a few years ago and sold it to buy my current house. I am looking to get another Brutale. I loved the ergos/power of the 910R. I am looking to get something newish but with similar power and ergos. What would resemble the 910 more the 1090 or 800?

I did find this thread, but nothing comparing the 1090.

Buy another 910R or 1078R....most seem to think first gen Bruties are built to a higher level of quality. I'm obviously biased.

910R, S4RS Monster,'78 BMW R100S, Heritage Softail, Chrome V-Rod, Sportster 48, Kawasaki Concours 1400, '07 Ultra Classic with sidecar, yellow Vespa LX 150, a cool little Ruckus, and a very understanding wife........

Finding one is tough. The price of new ones makes it almost not worth looking into used.

In my opinion, the 1078RR is the way to go - a 910R on steroids!!!
I also think the 1090RR would be a better bet than the 800.
Power = Giggles. Giggles = Happiness!

Hi NK140, having had both a 910R and a 2011 1090RR ( see Eddy's post just above to see what it looked like!) I would never go back to a 910R or a 1078RR and here's why.

The ergos are very similar but IMO the engine is much nicer to live with, still has awesome power and lots of character but with HD's input on this one it felt to me a much more refined model, plus you still get the hand made frame and the really nice wheels as well as the Brembo monoblocks.

I put on a polished set of Arrow headers, removed the flapper and cables, no errors an no mods required at all, it was making 144 RWHP with loads more torque than the 2013 onwards 1090RR.

I rode a late one back to back with mine and was really surprised at the lack of torque compared to mine. If I could have kept mine I would but had to sell it for the next project.

And as you will see on here they are virtually bullet proof, I didn't have a single issue with mine in 4 years.

But as always the choice is yours and you buy what you want to buy.

Cheers

James

1090rr up to 2012 i think ,has the same basic engine as the 1078rr, max torque at 8500 rpm by memory.Tony my Mate has destroyed 2 of them ,do not worry James it will not be 3 ,LOL. The 910 r is a great bike but like the 1078rr needs serious money spent on it to bring it up to par to the 1090rr.I have just about changed every part on this Bike .This is just a small run down.
1=front shocks with Andreani inards
2=rear shock nitron
3=EVR slipper clutch
4=upgraded water pump
5=cam chain tensionor
6=rear hub bearings
7=mirrors
8=indicators
9=clutch basket
10=front disks to Braking Wave rotors
11=Pc5
12=race ecu
13=new Throttle bodies
14=corbin set
15=Tps
16=crap loads of carbone
17=decate with mide pipe
18=can not remember the rest

the 1090rr is ready to go,and most of these issues have been fixed

19=crap loads of money,but i am in love with her.

cheers eddy
