Thinking of Buying 1090RR

Hi all, I am new to this forum and looking for some unbiased advice , I currently have a Speed Triple which I have had for 3 yrs, the bike has served me well but am now ready for a change.

My short list is one for 2 bikes; Benelli TNT or Brutale 1090RR, I have ruled out the 1078 as I believe it vibrates a fair bit through the bars, numb hands I don't want!

So my main concern about the 1090RR is I like torque and whilst a nice revvy motor is great it also has to be usable and not be as flat as a fart below 6000 rpm, any comments? What I don't want is a naked R1 if you see what I mean? The reason the Benelli is on my short list is one thing is for sure is they have character and it's not a UJM by any stretch of the imagination!

thanks in advance!

I have recently get a 990R...and I got impressed!

I am coming from a FZ1 (Naked R1, you know...) that has no power under 6K RPM...and a R6...what to say...more or less the same...

My first impression with the Brute is that you can count on the torque from 1k to the 10k RPM.

So, you can get more benefits...

- Chasis...show him the corner and he goes for it...
- Brakes...Nissin pump and Bembro radial mount (best partners)...just touch the lever and the bike STOPS...and softly.
- Suspension...works finest and soft enough for a daily use.
- Motor...read above.
- Beaty...tons!
- Exclusive...what to say...

When I turn to get a new bike...Benelli was not an option...you got no trust with the bike and the brand...I have talk with several Bike Shop owners and all of us gave the same answer: "No way".

Anyway...it is just my opinion based in my experience.

Brutale 990R Black '10
Yamaha TMax '11
Husqvarna WR250 '10
(Previous: Honda CR250R '03, Yamaha FZ1 '06, Yamaha R6 '07)

If you're not liking the characteristics of an IL4, then maybe wait for the aprilia tuno v4! If that comes out even in the same frame as the current model (which it won't, but who knows what aprillia will do!), it would be awesome bit of gear. For what it's worth though, my 1078 has more bottom end grunt than the tuono did and that had spades full of it! I haven't ridden the 1090 so can't comment on that sorry. But ride them all, you'll soon know what's best for you

I have a 1078RR and recently owned a new blade, and also ride an F41000. The 1078RR had the most ridiculously fat bottom end ever. It absolutely stomps from 2krpm. I mean I can outdrag almost anything starting in second. Unless you have spent some time on a 1078 or 1090, its hard to understand the stomp. My mate has a streetfighter and it is also very strong on bottom but you can only really use it above 3krpm. Its will rattle like a tractor. The big bore brutale's get my vote every time and I have spent time riding all the contenders. The liter sports bike get wasted when stomping around town using the bottom end. My F41000 feels positively weak against the 1078RR unless you have it screaming.

Good post Davman, I have a streetfighter too and you are exactly right, you have to ride it above 3000.
But it feels pretty normal to ride it around above 3k all the time... it's just not a problem

Good to hear about the grunt of the 1078 - I'm going to check one out this week.

I'm pretty excited !

Sounds good to me, I notice many of the reviews say the 1078 / 1090 have loads of torque which is a bit strange for a 4 in reasonable state of tune but I won't complain about it Have ruled out the Benelli, too many issues concerning reliability, maybe it's just peoples perception and the new ones are sorted now but it shows in the re-sale value or rather lack of it. The new Tuono V4 looks very dull in the colours I have seen so far, I have ridden the old one (Factory...top bike) my speed triple has far more grunt, Tuono gets better as you rev it, far more top end rush than the speed triple, Tuono finish and handling second to none.

What kind of average MPG can I expect from the Brutale? I notice the 1090 has a large tank so not a huge issue apart from being used a speed triple which rarely drops below 45 mpg!

Thanks for all the comments.

You will not be seeing 45 mpg on the MV.....but who cares, it is just such a sweet ride.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

I had a 2005 speed triple which had a lovely spread of strong torque. My 08 1078rr Brutale has a totally FEROCIOUS spread of torque from tickover,comparedto the speed. A different league.

Specs below, all stock bikes:

R1: 179hp (133kw), 85lbs (115N-m)

GSXR: 174hp (136kw), 89lbs (120N-m)

MV (1078 Brutale): 154hp (114kw), 86lbs (117N-m)

Aprilia V4: 182hp (130kw), 85lbs (115N-m)

Trumpy Speed3: 130hp (94kw), 77lbs (105N-m)

Aprilia Vtwin (Tuono): 137hp (100kw), 79lbs (107N-m)

Duc (Streetfighter): 155hp (114kw), 85lbs (115N-m)

Of course, this doesn't indicate WHERE they make max torque & power, but this is where the Brutale shines because it's nice and low and continues almost right through the rev range - very impressive imho. The trumpy is nice and low too and you get that big torque rush down low (similar to the v2 aprilia) but they drop off sooner (which further accentuates the torque hit).
