Question Will a Brutale fit in a 4x6 trailer?

Hey guys,

Does anyone have any experience fitting a Brutale in a standard 4x6 trailer? I bought a 750 on Sunday, and will pick it up this coming Saturday, but won't be riding it (hence the trailer).

I've taken my Cagiva Mito to the track before in a 4x6 (diagonally) and it was close but with a bit to spare once you get it in. As far as I know the Brutale wheelbase is 4cm longer than the Mito's (and the wheels/tires are a little bit wider which will be a factor).

I think it will fit. But I thought it worth checking here to see if anyone has tried and succeeded or failed - I don't want to turn up and not have it fit by 1 or 2cm!

Cheers. Nice to now be a part of the mvagusta.net gang!

Congrats! Mine just fits in my Dodge with a 6.5` bed diagonally with only inches to spare. Good luck but I doubt it will fit.

Brutale is 82" long. The hypotenuse of a triangle with 4' and 6' sides is 75"

Yeah it's an E46 323i, so it's got the 2.5 litre inline 6, which tows pretty well. I wouldn't try it with a 318 I tow all sorts of things behind it.

Oh and I tied the Brutale down with 6 heavy duty straps before moving the trailer. I was very pedantic, as I didn't want to hurt my new baby, and she survived the trip in top form.
