I would say go with the '05 910. Seems many appreciate the increased power/torque over the 750, although they are both great machines! Same price, and the 910 does not have that many miles, can't go wrong!

The good news is that you can't make a bad decision here, but having just been faced with a similar decision, I would have to recommend the 910. I was actually debating whether to get a used 750 or a new 910 and I opted to pay more for the new 910. It seems like you have a no-brainer on your hands. You have the benefit of more low-end torque and higher resale value - i.e. the 910 would be worth more in 1 year than the 750. I've only got 300 miles on my 910, so others may differ in their opinion, but for me the choice is clear!

Take the 910, you will grow out of the 750 in no time, you can keep the 910 for longer and make it a project bike.

Well, I had the same debate with myself, and I say the 750.
I wouldn't buy I used one anyway, you never know what the previous owner did, or how it was broken in.

But, for me, it came to wanting a more revvy motor, cheaper insurance, and the matte black. Although I am very pleased that MV, unlike most companies, actually reduced weight when increasing displacement. This makes the 910 still fall into the 'middle-weight' class of bikes, while outputting significant power.

[edit]: Although the 910R looks more and more tempting every day.

tough choice

I think this choice is tougher than some may think. I too am going back & forth on this decision. I have seen the other differences/pros & cons mostly covered here. But one question still remains. I love the way the 750s delivers it's power. It's all excitement. gently building through the midrange & then exploding into the top end with the most glorious f1 style scream.......it's intoxicating!!!! But yet sometimes I'm left wanting more. Not at the top end, but in the middle. Obviously the 910 would address this issue. But how does this affect the sensation? Whereas the 750s power & torque curves peak at around the same revs the 910's torque explodes early & then tails off for for a long time while the power & rev's build. Best of both worlds perhaps? But how different does it feel, seat of the pants style.
My other doubt is the sound! what are the differences?
As there is no Brutale 910 demo for me to test in my area I will have to rely on what is discussed here and magazine reviews. I love My 750s, but It's time for a newbie????????
Help required please.

I think the thing that sums it up the most was back when the 910 was debuted, and the reviews were given....

This quote sums it up the best:

Although most people will probably opt for the $14,500 910 when it arrives in America this fall, I’m not convinced. Bigger, in this case, isn’t necessarily better.
There you have it. Mind blustering 2-stoke style fun, or literbike torqueyness. I've driven many a literbikes, and ABSOLUTELY LOVE TQ, and coming from a liter twin, TQ is something I'm missing. BUT, I love the scream and fun this bike has up top. I'm kinda wondering what they mean by lacking mid range, as midrange is aroundthe 6K mark, and that's where I have the most fun cause that's where the power starts kicking in...unless thier idea of midrange is 3-4K...but then what's considered bottom end?

All in all, you can't go wrong. Remember "Bigger, in this case, isn’t necessarily better."....
