Normal faults: - Hub, headlight, gearbox spring, hot starting, hair trigger throttle (std. ecu). Mine's dropped a couple of coils over the years. Present battery (Yuasa) is almost 3 years old. Commute it, tour it and have done a couple of track days. 50 000k up now. Run a Microtec from Chris which fixed the fueling (eventually). Been as, or more reliable than some others I've owned. Still loving it after 7 years ownership.

Cheers

thanks deano most of that i have covered can take of the parts on the 910,
have gear selector spring, hub, headlight , the hair trigger throttle do you mean
if you open the throttle it bolts out the barn like a stallion.

Yep, pain in the arse round town and on the road until you get the suspension sorted a bit. As I said Microtec fixes it, although it's an expensive solution.

They didn't and yes. A mate had a 2014 1090 and that wasn't much better.

I see this is an old post, did you eventually purchase a 1078RR

I am up in Perthshire and at present looking for another MV after 4 years away from biking. I am also looking / interested in a Brutale 1078/1090, I am willing to travel anywhere in UK for this class of bike depending on mileage and condition.

How are you finding your present Brutale? after 3- F4's and back and neck pains, I am hoping the Brutale will slow me down more than the F4 would

Initially I was concerned with new Scottish emission regulations but guess I will just stay well away from city driving

I have been putting enquiries in at Cupar Motorcycles, Bennet's, and the usual autotrader searches but no success as of yet, if you have any pointers I would appreciate


regards Roy

My 1078 brutale is perfect on fuelling ,after spending Dollars , Personally i would go for the early 1090 rr ,by memory the black motor , around 2010 to 2012 ,they are the best built .If you are tall the 1090 is the way to go . My mate has the 1090 rr and i have the 1078 rr , both are great bikes , no snatchy throttle on either bike . Out of the box you will have less issues with the 1090 .

cheers Eddy

Less issues maybe but not quite the charisma Eddy. Don't like the finish on the 1090.
