Have I Understood The 1090 Correctly?

Hi all, apologies for the newb questions, the nearest major MV dealer that I know of is a good few hours away so I've been reading up on the forum before planning a visit.

I'm looking at the 2013 1090 as my summer commuter, I ride 90 miles every day come rain, sun or (atm) snow. Mainly fast dual carriageway with some twisty sections and a block of fast filtering/splitting. I've got a tourer for winter/rain, my dream bike for "special occasions" and now need something for everything in between

It sounds like the Brutale is exotic, fast, grunty, comfortable and so hits most of the marks.

-Fuel mileage of 170 miles seems easily doable, perhaps 190 before dry?
-How about with a Microtech setup, I've read that it improves efficiency but not seen any indication of how much you can stretch a tank to.
-Is ABS really available? - I've seen no bike/prices/real details other than the initial announcement.
-What are the service intervals ? I'm assuming 5-6k miles from what I've read which would mean a dealer visit every couple of months in summer.
-Looks like the bike isnt too loud stock - I love to hear the pipe on the move but 6am starts with a loud can make you very unpopular!
-Finally, is there any real difference between a base model and an R ? I know that the RR has the difft engine but the R only seems to have cosmetics (led brake lights and integrated mirror/indicators) over the R.

I've got my eye on a white 2013 base model and I'm not a million miles from XBikes so a tune up would be in order immediately after running in.


thanks!

Welcome to the forum mate. I do hope you get one, these guys site is very well laid out and easy to go through - http://www.mvagustaimports.com.au/

As for your questions.
1. I don't see the point in buying a high performance machine and then worrying about fuel consumption, but I know some do and they might come along and comment shortly. Not too many 2013's doing a lot of mileage on the forum as yet.
2.Chris from X-Bikes can help with the Microtec, give him a Ring.
3.Yes ABS is out there.
4. Close enough on the service intervals
5. It's legal.
6. No, on the Brutale they all use the same motor, only on the F4's are they different. The base model is just de-tuned I believe.

You will note that there are various other difference's, like more sedate brakes, other wheels, less adjustment on the suspension ...etc

Good luck, I hope this helps.

Welcome, I don't own a 1090, have ridden lots of Brutales mind incl 1078. So my thoughts.
As for fuel tank range of 190 miles, no chance even if you ride like your gran is pillion. Brutales drink fuel, our 910 used to get around 90 miles from full to light on, bit better now but more like 130 to dry.

Chris knows his stuff and will sort you a microtec but I would hold back a bit until you get some good miles on the bike and see why you feel the need for one. If you want more noise yes that's available, but get a full system and ditch the cat then go for a microtec. Keep the original set up for MOT time.

As for base and R etc, Donsy summed it up well, the spec is in the detail.

Good luck and report back when you get aboard.

Thanks for the comments Donsy. Apologies I should have been clearer, tank range concern is more about convenience than cost - I agree with your point, I'm sure the 1090 will eat tyres when pushed hard as well so it wont be the budget choice.

From what I've read about a Tuono for example I would be lucky to make a single round trip without having to fill up in the way. I hoped the large tank on the 1090 might just stretch to 1.5 or 2 round trips (about 180miles).

Thanks
Andy

If its going to be a pure commuter, perhaps the 990 might be a better alternative? - it's still an awesome bike, but perhaps not as mental (IMO)

...but welcome anyway, you'll love whichever one you choose.

Hi Andy
Not got a 1090,would of liked one but they were too much dosh . I've got a 2011 Brutale 920 . Great bike, rode it to Italy last year, superb apart from a hard seat after 4 days . On a long motorway run at about 75-80 mph I get just about 180 miles to a tank . How magazines reckon you get 200 out of a tank god knows . Service interval is about every 3600 miles . I've fitted MV Corse cans and they are slightly louder than stock .Done just under 5k miles so far and love it . No dealer near me either . I drove 5 hours upto Robinsons in Rochdale to buy mine .

Brutale 800 Italia
Monster 796 .

Before I decided to place my deposit on the MVA 1090 base, I was tempted to buy a Monster, but the small fuel tank on the Ducati made the 1090 an easy choice. Anyway, the MVA logo on the tank is the stuff of dreams!!

72s,
I would love to give you any advice on the 2013 1090R as i have mine in the garage from the first week of january.
Crappy weather and snow (again ) have prevented me from doing any miles on it.

Looking in the garage however gives me the smile any day!

Have had 2 bikes on the shortlist. (ugly) Tuono V4 and the (beauty) Brutie.
Couldn't be more pleased by my choice and i even haven't ridden it yet ....

Guy

"How about with a Microtech setup, I've read that it improves efficiency but not seen any indication of how much you can stretch a tank to"

I have a Mar 2011 1090RR with Microtec - I get about 170 km - sometimes more, sometimes less, depending how I ride.

And it rides like a weapon !
