Bike Magazine

I was just speaking to one of the guys from MotoGB, apparently BIKE magazine borrowed a Brutale 1078 last month, the article should be in the next issue, they loved it (obviously)!

Cool

An interesting comparison test. Twice as expensive, twice as fast?

To be sure, it's twice as good looking.

I like their recommendation at the end: to buy a 910.

Time is a delusion. Lunchtime doubly so.

I just liked the quote:

"But for all its image, compared to a 1078, the Zed is as taxing as
a Parkinson interview. The Z1000 is mug of Ovaltine and an early
night next to the frenzied, 36-hour, six-in-a-bed, cocaine-binge
Brutale. The MV is savagery made stylish, a nuclear-powered
caveman in an Armani loincloth. A proper badass."

I can't wait for our demo to arrive!

Obviously at this point I should stress that I have never been an Ovaltine user, nor could I condone the use of any warm, bedtime drinks!

OBVIOUSLY, at this point you would like to stress that you are a habitual 6-in-a-bed user.... Would you care to enlarge on the 6-in-a-bed...?

Remember friends.......this was a Brutie quote, not a pansy ass F4!

Just think, if Lee had worn any kind of loin cloth on his Tambo, I wouldn't be having continual nightmares.
