Question ever wish the Brutale was 1 inch larger?

Wouldn't it be great if MV offered a larger (as in overall bike size) version of the current Brutale? A "Brutale II" if you will.. the engine can be increased relative to the current riding dynamics of the Brutale, so as not to over do it and keep it how we love it, just a larger profile Brutale for larger riders.

at 5'6".... i'm glad that someone finally made a bike for ME

after spending the last year on a BMW R1200GS... which is the quintessential bike made for tall folks... it's a novelty to be able to "flat foot" the bike at a light

I am 5'10" and I guess the avg. size rider... I have no issues with either MV but I don't wish my performance bike to be any bigger... I like them the way they are, small and nimble.

You could buy a Tuono, they're about an inch or two bigger, but I find them visually unappealing. Downright ugly, actually.

Cheers,

True, if you want bigger, get a Tuono, the MV is perfect! The first time I sat on mine I was awestruck! The bike is MADE for me!

(Of course, being 5'3 I realize guys that have another foot on me, probable don't like it as much, but to them I say )

Hey!!!!

I'm 5'2" and I'm glad I finally found a bike that FITS! Don't keep encouraging them to make bigger bikes and FURTHER limit the selections for us shorties.

I know a lot of people that have had custom seats made to increase seat height on their bikes. Would that work.

Oh, but yes, there are things I run across now and then that I really wish were 1" or 2" bigger....

I'm also 5'6" and for the first time in my life I have a bike that fits my frame. Seat height could be 1/2" shorter for me (*30" inseam) but everthing else works for me. I'm seriously thinking about modifying my stock seat with a gel pad and taking the 1/2" off of it.
