Almost perfect Brutale, imho




I know the Brembos that came on the bike are lighter but I'm not a fan of the black wheels. I love the Senna Wheels.

I have a full Titanium system, but it didn't look right with the silver wheels so I sold it.

The headers are the race headers and are longer than the stock headers. This required a major modification of the Arrow mid pipe in order for the Thunder exhaust not to stick out to the middle of the rear wheel.

Just the right balance of carbon fiber and aluminum I think. CRG bar ends and mirrors, CRG shorty Levers, and the MV Corse locking gas cap. The jury is still out on the short levers. I think I like the full length better.

MV Corse Carbon fiber rear hugger.
MV Corse carbon fiber upper and lower chain guards.

Carbon fiber tail with integrated tail lights and blinkers.

Clear lens caps on the front blinkers with the absurd US mandated spacers removed (thanks, Ed).

FBF rear sets and reservoir covers.

Very well done!

That's one of my favorite wheels of all time, it looks great on your bike.
The clear lenses and spacer removed on the front blinkers really helped clean up the look
I like the CRG short levers better than the full length, good choice.

Nice bike! I especially like the shorty pipes and Senna wheels on your bike!

I think I like the full length levers better too.

I would have to drink about a dozen red stripes before I would be drunk enough to do that.

Agreed . Rim stripes would be like sewing a cock on Lucy Pinder

Looks great. I would not have thought the Senna wheels would have worked that well. The silver is a great contrast with the black bike. Exhaust sets the bike apart more. Bravo

Hey John...hope all is well. Sorry, but I have to agree...no red stripes.
