Considering a Brutale 1090RR

Hey All,

I already have an F4 (you can see my previous thread here http://www.mvagusta.net/forum/106-f4...ial-build.html)
however i have been on the look out for a second bike for a while now, usual suspects, Monster, Tuono or a Brutale etc.
I went to view a 1090RR today and I am seriously considering buying it, seems it great condition, rode well (easier than my F4) with 13k on the clock. Good price also.

The bike would be used more as an everyday bike but not to commute to work, occasionally with the missus on the back.

Anything i should look out for on this model? assuming it is much the same engine etc as my F4 so similar know little niggles.

Any advice appreciated.

All the usual stuff - check service history and that someone familiar with MVs has done the servicing. All the similar niggles apply. Its missing some top line power compared to an F4 but the lower gearing more than makes up for that, and roll on in gear performance is better.

I love my 1090RR but I wouldnt buy one as a pillion bike though ....it likes to wheelie in enough as it is, with someone on the back I would think a whiff of throttle in any gear will have it on the rear wheel

I fitted the single seat cowl and took the pillion pegs off; I have a more pillion friendly bike for taking the missus out on !

cheers

I have just bought one. Brilliant, brilliant bike. Wonderful engine, brakes are spot on, 4th and 5th gear everywhere and pulls like a train. Do it. It's a beautiful thing.

I have a 2012 1090RR and it's a great bike! Not as fast as my F4 but a great all around bike for traffic or open road. It does everything well! I'm not sure how comfortable a pillion would be because I've never taken one.(I'm enjoying my extra F4 wheels jhollis ;-) )

Ok, the deal is done. She is now mine however it will be a couple of weeks until i get to pick her up (we are both travelling)

Told the Missus I need 2 MV's as she has more than 2 handbags so same theory goes, different bikes for different purposes. Plus she can go on the back but going on whats been said here she may quite scared!
cruiser and cruiser like this.

Congrats...I may be a long 2 weeks ......

If your missus likes getting her knee down on the rear and wheelies, im sure she will love going on the back of a Brutale

cheers
