Buying a leftover 2004 Brutale S

I'm looking at buying a leftover 2004 Brutale S that has been in the crate until today. Is there anything I need to worry about or check for with it sitting in the crate for the last 2 years or so, and anything in general about the 2004 that I should be concerned about? It's a long distance from where I live to the dealer and I want to be sure that nothing is wrong with it before I leave there.

Don't do it!

Get new 910; you will not regret extra $ in the long run. 910 has updated gear box, more power and BETTER engine & fuel mgt system. 2005 Brut I believe was different than 04.

Brut guys tell him the truth.........

Check the fluid levels, tire pressure (a good idea before every ride) and make sure there is no battery corrosion. It should be under warranty anyway, so you should be OK. If its the brutale at an MV dealer (im pretty sure I know where your getting it), you shouldnt have a problem. Good Luck, your gonna love it!

I will second Peter's thoughts. 750 is great but if you can afford a 910 its worth the premium and resale value will be better. There are now a lot of 910's on ebay. Whatever you do...make it an MV

I also got my 2004, new in April. You will love it! I have ridden the 910, and still prefer the 750 (although I do lust after the 910R ), plus there are other benefits like a significant discount on the purchase (presumably you are getting one), and lower insurance rates.
Between the 750 and 910, JamesC started a thread a while back, and IMHO it basically comes down to whether you prefer the to ride supersport type bikes, or liter bikes.
But either way, you will not be dissapointed

Oh, but my fuel sensor was defective, BTW, but was replaced under warranty.

Getting a 2005 Brutale 750

Well I've put my money down on a 2005 750. Picking it up next week.

Dealer said he'd want me to keep a close eye on things and bring it in pronto if there was any leaks or sounds. He said it's just a precaution as the bikes been sitting for a year and a half.

Thanks for the input so far, I appreciate it. I'm set on the 750 because the only reason I can afford a Brutale period at this time is because of it being so heavily discounted.

It is from an authorized MV dealer so I don't have any worries there. I guess I'll just do the usual pre-ride check and hope they went over it good today while setting it up. I'm going to be riding it back so just don't want to get standed half way inbetween
