Talking brutale description...

People often ask me what the brutale is like to ride. I always find it hard to describe. I came across this review and I think this is a really good description...

"Coming to its dimensions, the Brutale 1078RR is very compact and features robust, high-spec components. The 1078cc engine is simply marvellous it produces enough power to propel this bike to a top speed of 252km/h, which is not bad at all for a naked. The acceleration feels incredible and its virtually impossible to avoid pulling big wheelies in first and second gear. Also, the mid-range if very strong. To give you an idea of how strong, the Brutale 1078RR accelerates from 60km/h to 160km/h in 7.6 seconds, which a Yamaha R1 does in 9.2 seconds."

Interesting...

I cant wait to dip into my 1090rr's power. Although Ive heard that the 1078 was a much more aggressively tuned motor...

More low-end? mid-range? Thoughts?

I don't know for sure but I thought the 1090 was just more civilized than the 1078 in the way of setup - suspension, etc. and power was the same.

there is a list of new components here:

The 1078RR is the end all be all. The 1090 might be a little more styled and have more matching parts but $500 and a good painter did all that for me on mine. My wrist can smooth out the acceleration. I'll take more power, more torque and less weight ANY day over a 1 yr newer model.

Since the thread started out as "brutale description", I'm going to throw on a Dylan Weiss cut on the MV Agusta Brutale after he road the 910R. I like his description of what its like to ride it.

What is great is only MV owners truly know what he's talking about (especially us Brutale riders)

Side note: If you've never seen the youtube parts 1-5, its definitely worth watching and provides a view at the the care that goes into building our bikes.
