Dry Clutch was a Prototype.....

So I finally heard back from MotoCorse that has the crazy Brutale 1133 with the Big Bore kit and the dry clutch by HRT. I wanted to know what was available and how much. The dry clutch was a (non-working) prototype that they decided to not move forward with on manufacture. So clears that up.

Now, next question, Does anyone make a dry clutch for a Brutale?

Nope, no one produces a dry clutch for the Brutales.
I know of a guy in Italy that has a dry clutch on his, but its also a prototype. I thought he was the only one, but seems like Motocorse has one also.
I also know he was selling his very specially tricked Brutale for a not absurd at all price.

Being that a dry clutch is going to be an issue and understanding that you want to showcase the internals why not have a glass front cover fabbed up so you can see the wet clutch. I am sure you could get some anodized internals and it would be the next best thing visually. There are a couple companies that do that to any OEM clutch cover.

I actually want a dry clutch cause I like how they grab and I don't want the resistance of my clutch dragging through the oil as it spins. Oh well. Wish someone would just make it.

There would have to be engine casing modifications to prevent the oil from entering the clutch housing...

The initial cost would be a lot to create it, but once they moved a few, they'd get their money back quick if it was more reasonable. Don't want the Duc guys to get all the good stuff.

A guy from HRT did it, as you can see HRT logo is on this Motocorse bike also. So it's probably done by the same guy.

He had the working bike, there were clips of it on youtube.
