Cool Help! 1090RR or 1078RR Brutale?

Yep. I'm considering going over to the naked side. The raw 1078 or the more civilized 1090? Both with the appropriate Race ECU and decent pipes of course.


I truly welcome all responses. My only experience with a Brutale was with a 910S, a week long almost two years ago, when my F4 1078RR still had cooling problems.

Cheers,

Michiel

B 1078...because I love the F4 1078 so I can imagine the FUN factor on the Brute and I´m sure you can get a good deal also!

List price for both is the same at my dealer's but the 1078RR's list price sounds a lot more negotiable.

I love my F4 1078RR (the Millesettantotto) but I'm afraid it'll have to go to make place for a (slightly) more practical ride. I won't be able to ride as much as I did due to a change of working environment. Riding to work through the Amsterdam canal street system on a Brutale seems slightly less bonkers than on an F4.

The rawness of the 1078 attracts me more than the supposedly more civilized nature of the 1090; but that's all theory as I haven't ridden one yet.

I should have read Khameron's extensive (though not conclusive ) review of May 2010 before posting; he knows what he's talking about.

Any further commenst are very welcome!

I've only driven B1078 so I can not compare the ride characteristics. But I can confirm that a 1078 is raw.

I would argue that it is easy to håndere in the city. You will get a good view of traffic when you sit so upright. But the gas is a bit off and on.

A Brutal 1090 is surely yet more manageable. But when it comes to build quality, I mean the old 1078 is at a level above the new model. At least when it comes to appearance.

No matter whom you choose, it is desirable bikes both.


Good luck with your purchase.

one thing to consider, is the older 1078 will have more aftermarket pipes and such for it that are interchangeable than the new 1090.

i'm noticing that for the 1090 year there are not a lot of mod parts out for it compared to a 1078 bike and such, something to consider if you really want to mod the bike a bit.

Because it doesn't need the mods like the previous model.

the older ti mid pipes are really nice and have more options to connect to the stock cans than the current 1090, i would love to get a set of ti mid/headers going to the stock cans instead of the arrow/thunder exhaust can.

The lack of response is amazing to say the least I should have posted this in my trusted F4 section. I knew it!
