2013 1090RR Test Ride

After my local MV Agusta dealer told me that the beauty I'd like to have (2018 Brutale RR Graphite/White), this one:



it's exactly the same bike from 2017-16-15-14-13... and that she wouldn't be available until next May/June, I thought it would be a good idea to pick up a 2nd hand and wait until the new Brutale comes out. Words are that it'll come with the same F4RR new engine (please, correct me if you know better). So I've had the chance to ride a 2013, this other beauty:









Unfortunately, a quite cold day and semi wet road test ride doesn't say too much, but I wanted to have it anyway. The seller claims to have barely 8k miles on her, really feels very new, despite being a 2013. I'd appreciate if you see anything out of the line or any wrongs at the pics, or any advice on what to look on her to be sure I'm not making a big mistake.

The ride was absolutely nice, it's a very compact bike, very obedient and steady, powerful brakes, her hilarious howl -oh my...!!-, and quite torky at all ranges. This was my biggest concern, as I'm losing 44Nm from my actual ride (and some ponies as well, but no biggy).

The only thing I didn't really like was (and please forgive my english because is not good enough to make a good explanation of this matter, I lack some vocabulary for this) a kind of whiplash+void of power when going from no throttle, to engaging the throttle -say going in 3rd, putting one down to enter the turn, and it happens when engaging the throttle again). It's like the sound of a valve that opens and closes very rapidly, and sometimes feeling that small void in the throttle. I hope you can recognize this as a brand matter, or as whatever mechanical fault or characteristic... It is ride by wire this one, right? I don't really know what. Please, care to comment on that?

Thanks for reading. Cheers!

Im actually having a Brutale 1090rr in the back of my mind for a trade in.
Stunning bike, better seat position compared to supersport model. But the headlight is ugly.

If and once u get her, let us know how she rides

"Snatchy" throttle pick-up (the lag you describe) is a fairly common complaint among many newer bikes (and not just MVs...even Jap bikes). There may have been map updates that have not been done to this machine which may improve that sensation.

Ask about map updates

.....Otherwise, I have found a sensitive wrist can easily ride around such glitches...and if you keep her running high up in the rev range you never notice. In other words, never dropping below around 8,000 rpm. Of course, hard to do anywhere but a track. And you will lose your license if you ride like that on the street.

The bike looks great! Love the color scheme. Is that the "America" model??

Oh....and the chain looks too tight !!!!

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

It is definitely the character of the bike to not like slow speed, low rpm throttle roll on's. e.g. at a give way signed t intersection. I pull the clutch and slip it.
Not a big issue, it is the MV way of telling you it is not a stuck in traffic city bike.

Well, that's gotta be, it was more noticeable at low revs, that's a fact. I'll ask for a software update and I'll try to push her harder if I take her in, but LOL, how in hell do I ride above 8000 this beast out of a track!!?? I wouldn't be too sure I could do that even on track!!

Well, in my defense I must say I come from many years riding big twins, so I'm very much used to ride under 7000rpm. But It's not going to be my first, nor my second 4cyl, so I'll soon get used to it, I hope.

Thank you all very much for the feedback.

BTW, the America Ed. is this one:

I like mine its a 13 and this color scheme gotta be careful winding out the gears abruptness going into 3 or 4th can cause the front wheel to lift moreso on cooler days

That's another beauty, congrats!

Really? In 3rd and 4rd gears? Without using the clutch? Well, I'm pretty familiar with that anyway, my SDK1290R has a strong tendency to point the front wheel to the sky too. You must be very careful with the throttle, pretty torky beast as well.

Very nice, I have always loved the Super Duke. Since you have the SDR and test rode the Brutale which do you feel is more comfy?

and any other thoughts about the two.
