Itching to buy the 2010/11 1090RR

Guys, this has been on my mind for long. And I'm almost there to get me the next gen Brutale but definitely not the 2013 for the changes made, colors, wheels, exhausts etc or the 2012 for the cheesy colors (with due respect to 2012 owners). Not much difference between 2011 & 2012 except for paint and the radiator shrouds that get to look more like the smaller Brutale's. Now 2010 has 3 colors and in 2011 they added the red frame with grey/silver paint. I am sort of honed in on the Black/White followed by the Grey/Silver Red frame. Although the red frame looks a little tacky for some reason on the big Brute (at least in the photos) while the dark grey frame on the 2010 looks very understated and svelte. But black/white paint looks a touch Japanese on the tail section. Since I have a 1078RR in red/silver no fun in getting the same color for 1090. Now I know color choice is very personal but what do you suggest?

Why go from a 1078 to a 1090, although the bikes are different are they different enough to make the change worthwhile? Have you ridden the 1090?

I maybe biased but go for the red frame looks great in the flesh, it's one of the things people like when they check the bike out.

I really wanted the gray model with the red frame (was replacing a silver with red frame Brutale) as shown above but couldn't find one so I settled for the 2010 black paint scheme. I have no regrets.

Very personal opinion regarding what colour schemes you like...

If we all liked the same colour scheme, then most of us would NOT have any bikes because the factory doesn't just make one colour and demand would be higher than supply.

In my opinion , I think that the red frame, although it looks good, reminds me of the fact that it looks like a Ducati

I really like my frame / colour scheme, but that's my personal opinion.

And if you don't like the colour scheme, there are plenty of paint shops that could change the colour for you.

Glenn, our bikes are exact dame MY, one thing I notice is how the red frame makes the tubing look a much wider diameter, mine looks "fat" while yours looks "slender"

I think the black or grey frame works best - highlights the red engine head better looking that little bit more special.

Hi,i've got the white/black with the black frame,Pierre's has the bronze and Getec's the black, it changes the look of the bike more than you would think,i also think the late 2011 bikes have a different ECU programming, compared to the 2010 demo bikes i rode while making up my mind to buy, my bike from new has had a less abrupt pickup from closed throttle and has only improved as the K's have gone bye,the whole bike really and adding an Inox manifold has only improved it.Good Luck Steve

No i havent ridden the 1090. I will be keeping the 1078 as its the original brutale and im nuts about it. I also like the 1090 for the improvements and I simply love the Brutale so two of em is healthy for the heart.
