Unhappy Update on my bike

So,

as you all know my new Brutale 750 with 40 miles on it developed some serious oil leaks and dealer took the bike back for repairs..

Today, dealer said that they fixed some of the oil leaks, but found more problems with one of the cylinders misfiring ?!?!?!?!

They will talk to Agusta on Monday and ask for a replacement bike... or something of that sort...

I am super pissed, becase I took vacaton from work so I could enjoy my new bike... what a bummer

Sorry to hear that, there must be some serious problems if they already talk about a replacement.

I hope it starts raining in your area so its not that hard on you.

Keep us posted!

Your new bike that sat for two years, was it in the crate? or was it on the show room floor after being run. It may have sat for two years with a wet cylender. As for the oil leaks that does not sound rite at all. If they want to get you a new(er) bike, on the bright side you may end up with an 06 or 07 . And if no 750s are not available a new 910. But anyway it sounds like your dealor wants to do everything to make you a satisfide costomer and without that you got a big problem Good luck with the outcome and now that you had a taste of the Brutale it`s going to be even tuffer of a wait

That sucks, but sounds like the dealer is going to bat for you. Hang in there. I think everyone has had the coolant leak, but Havent heard of any oil leaks. My 750 would creep twords 230 temp, but then it would back down, and Im in FL. Good luck.
