Buiyng a Brutale 910. S or R?

Hi!

I own a F4 today and considering adding a Brutale 910 to the bike shed. My dealer offers my a 910S or a 910R. What are your views on that?

I'm leaning towards the R version but do I get my moneys worth?

Thanks for any help you can give me!

cheers, zeta

no question for me..... the "R"
because of the brakes
the extra horsepower is not the main thing for me
the new midpipe/slip on you can replace for yourself
but....
the monoblock brembros and 8 pound LIGHTER FORGED WHEELS
are worth 5K AT THE VERY LEAST..... so.... the 3K extra is a bargain.... IF you want to spend that money
no offense to the "S".... which is utterly amazing

So R you say... here in Sweden we pay 5000 USD more for the R then the S but on the other hand I will buy race can and middlepipe anyway and the breakes and the wheels are awsome...

so maybee the R version it's for me... I'm getting information on the delivery time later today I think and that pays a role to since the riding season in Sweden ends in september.

Spalding, Have you taken delivery of yours yet?

MV Blackie, What do you think about the tourque on the 910 engine?

cheers, zeta

In my opinion, unless you plan on tracking the Brutale a lot OR you plain out love the looks of the R, then go with the 910s. Personally, I went with the 910s because I HAD to have the red/black color scheme with the red frame. I knew I was not going to be a track junkie with the bike so I did not need the upgraded brakes. Would I love to have the Brembos? You bet, but not enough to give up the red/black. I have decided to track the Brutale in a month or two. But chances are, in the long run, I am going to pick up a used Ducati 749 or F4 750 for the track.

I will not do any track on the Brutale. Trackdays I use the F4 for. This year I got my first baby so there will not be so much time for trackdays but next year will be full...

Talked to the dealer and he will look into a good price on the R version since I bought the F4 from him... so on monday I will decide. I was asked to think about what parts I would be interested to get in a deal... do you have any thoughts?

Thanks and cheers, zeta

For any type of aggressive street riding or for the track, get the R. Everything included on the R contributes to it going faster ... makes a noticeable difference on hard canyon riding. Also, I don't know if the regular 910 comes with the Pirelli Supercorsa Pro, but I highly recommend these tires. If anyone has had experience with the Michelin Power Race tire, please chime in.

i find the r styling kind of uninspired; a little too under the radar
