They must have forgotten about the Brute, or got paid by Ducati. If you read thier review of teh Brutale, they absolutely loved it, both the 750 and 910. If I remember right, they said the thing was like the funnest bike they've ever been on and thier only complaint was the front end was too stiff on bumpy roads... I KNOW FOR A FACT they'de think differently if they rode an R...

US mags are stupid anyways....

yes,
the US mags ARE stupid
nonetheless..... to pick the S4RS over the Brutale 910 would be seen as ridiculous to any impartial jury

Just like all the car mags I get its all about the ad revenue and the use of test vehicles that sway results. Ferrari and Porsche are notorious for winning comparos with points in bogus categories like "got to have it factor". Now I just look at the pics and read the tech data!

I haven't picked up the mag.... but which bikes did they include for the test?

Price prolly has a lot to do with it! I'm not fond of the S4RS myself(former owner of S4R), but for the money, you do get a lot a goodies! I still wouldn't buy it however!

910R is still the baddest boy in all the land.....

Motorcyclist Magazine is probably one of the weakest bike mags. When you look at the overall quality of infomation there is really not much to offer. You could pick up any British Bike mag published in the last 30 days and there will be a mention of a MV Agusta, whether it be the new F41000R or the Brutale. The Brits understand sportbikes and generally love the MV in all its forms. Motorcyclist magazine did not mention the Brutale even as an also ran. Those guys are a bunch of paid off putzes. Just my HO.

i couldn't agree more
and anyone who's ever doubted your comments need only see THIS as an example of the truth

FWIW, the BOTY decission is mostly made by Boehhm...with some input from the other staffers (especially in the years since Cook left his post). He's a big dude and the Brutale is NOT a big dude's bike, so probably isn't as much fun for a big dude to ride. Further, BOTY tends to be awarded to bikes which have significantly advanced over previous offerings AND are easily available to the general public. The 910 makes very few changes outside of displacement and is NOT widely available. It is a niche bike, and was thus probably never even in the running.

To top it all off I suspect MV was not very cooperative about providing a bike or letting it sit in the garage for very long.

Just my humble opinion.
