Saw the new Brutie today

Stopped by TT to check in on my bike, and took a gander at the new Brutie. No demo yet, though I did sit on it for awhile. A bit taller (I couldn't flat-foot it, and can on my 910), but WAY comfy. They definitely fixed the seat in a good way.

Overall, nice looking bike. Fit and finish is superb, and it's amazing how they tucked everything into the frame.

I definitely don't like the new instrument surround though, it's about twice as big as the old one and sloped down at a dramatic angle. It does appear to be removable's not just a "cover" like the old one.

They also had some other tasty goodies at TT

Gorgeous bikes, That ducati and aprilia are beautiful!. Yeah the massive instrument cowl is among the things about the 'new' Brutale that I really don't like. I really need to see 'one in the flesh' though as I'm sure it's a lovely bike but there's no way I'd change my 1078 for one...NO way!. Come to think of it I'd not change my 1078 for anything. Get one of these, fit a microtek'll stay faithfull to the end. Like being married to Halle Berry!!.
