910s impressions

Just finished my first day with new 910s. She's a 03/2006 build, red in colour. Coming from the Brutale 750s it felt right straight away. I have opted for the hard break in method advised by many, so once warm I twisted the throttle to the stop .
Things I noticed first were a general feeling of more refinement to this motor. There is slighty more vibration evident however, mostly higher in frequency & this generates a little tingling through the pegs. Something I never experienced with the 750 & slightly annoying at first, but seemingly gone soon afterwards as the miles went by. The feeling of refinement led me to think some of the 750's character had been lost, that rawness dulled down. A new sound is introduced in line with this trait, a kind of whirrr noise at light throttle openings & lowish rpm.
3rd gear, crest of a hill with the road sloping away, crack the throttle wide open. Holyshit.....feels like 2nd gear on the 750 as the front wheel proceeds to hover inches above the ground for 100 metres before touchdown with a chirp of the tyre. Now were serious I thought.
Onto the twistes, broad spread of power makes it such a joy. Gone is the crazy stepped power delivery of the 750. Replaced with smooth liner power, more urge everywhere & warp factor launches of the corners. This thing really hauls & requires more care with the throttle to prevent unhooking rear tyre or lofting the front. This is where the 910 pulls back fun factor points
Probably hit 10000-11000rpm sometimes & I'd say whilst low end & midrange are worlds apart, topend feels only a little bit stronger. Ofcourse that will probably change with a few more miles on her.
As for sound thankfully not much changes, (except for the whirr mentioned earlier) the glorious induction sound is still there . Yet to see redline but some of the 750's mad mechanical thrashing/F1 style scream may have faded sadly. . Something I wasn't expecting.......the 910s sounds about as loud or louder at idle than my 750 with the midpipe fitted!!! And it's bone stock!!
Another bonus: for whatever reason, despite the 910's higher compression ratio, there is way less engine braking
Getting on the gas from a closed throttle is more abrupt than 750 & disconcerting at first but only really affecting the slowest of corners/roudabouts etc. This would probably be my only gripe, not as much of a problem as i anticipated. You can ride around the problem with revised technique or a power commander which I intend to do later anyhow.
Early days yet & with more time plus mods yet to come I can say the 910 is already better.............conclusion.

OK 721,,, youve just about done it for me. I've been lusting for a 910 and I just may have to buy one now after reading your report. I think the 3rd gear, cresting the hill, carrying the front wheel skyward part sold me! Yee hawww!!

the hard break in is no prob @ all, just before they leave the factory
they are put on a testing bank and they go (almost) full throttle for 20 mins
(so soft break in is just wishfull thinking)
congrats with the new toy, hope you will love it as much as i do

i've never heard of that
i'm all FOR a HARD break-in..... i believe in them strongly

go to your local dealer and look at a new brutale... right out of the crate
smell the INSIDE of the motor....
look at the oil that comes from the factory (drain a bit out of the bike)

you'll quickly see that the motor hasn't been run at all.... or maybe just turned over

i think that they might TEST a few of the motors this way... but they certainly don't do that to ALL of them... or the motors wouldn't LOOK and SMELL new out of the crate
