Brutale - Old vs New??

For those who have owned the previous Brutale series and now have the new one or those who has rode both series....
Which one do you like better and why?
What are the biggest differences (improvments?) you noticed between them?

Rode both , the new one you can use daily The old one is harsher (power comes more brutal) , but build finish of the new one is..............just my 2 cents

Yes, that's what i was already expecting and i think the same applies to the F4's.
And i agree the "old" ones are more special

I concur but both new and old models are very special indeed

There are motorcycles and then there is MV

Have ridden both and own 1090, maybe the build is 5% less than older model but 20% more useable . Are you thinking of riding it or looking at it ??

Not knocking the older model , but ride both both, you will then have the answer .

This has been discussed in detail several times. The 1078RR is definitely the most refined older model, especially in the suspension (harness people complain about) department.

Thank you guys
Steve i will ride it of course, but i don't ride as much as i used to and i have more bikes so yes looks are very important. I like the new Brutale, but i think the older ones looks even better.
And of course price is important also

own a 910s ride and have riden the 990
my verdict
the old 910 was called the brutale because it was a brut hard harsh quirky unlike any other bike and i love it for it .........its a true bike
now the 990 smoooooth just like any other bike its predictable some might say boring

as to the finish the old brutale 100% every thing perfect looks high class
the new looks a little cheeper just not as hi standard
i was going to upgrade to the 1090 but i wont bother
