In the Market for a Brutale

Greetings All,

Trust everyone is enjoying summer. Need some help guys !
I am in the market for a Brutale and contemplating between a few choices:-
- Used 2010 Brutale 990R @ $8900 plus shipping from CA to NJ
- New 2010 Brutale 1090 RR from dealer @ 14K
- New 2013 Brutale 1090 / 1090RR (will search for a deal)

I recently sold my 2006 910S was a great bike loved it and now itching to a be a repeat MV Agusta owner again.

Offcourse trying to strike the best balance between performance and bang for the buck. What are your suggestions /idea/ thoughts?

Couple questions /queries come to my mind
- Is the 990R that different from 1090 RR?
- Should even consider a 2010 model when the new 2013?
- Do I really need the extra HP / brembo brakes etc - in the RR model
- With the introduction of the B3 800 - lets throw that into the mix

I do ride a lot and easily put about 10K plus miles on my bike per year.
Will be using it as a commuter as well as weekend fun ride

Love to hear your views and welcome your input /feedback!

Thanks !
Chan

I'm assuming your in NJ (like me) from your post . Did you check with Fast by Ferracci? HWhen I was there a couple weeks ago, he had 2012 leftover 1090R there (if that's a consideration). The extra power and brakes is nice. But the slipper clutch in the RR is a preference of mine. I might be misinformed, but the 800's are very few and far between in the US. I think the dealers only got in the 675's recently.

The dealership I'm getting my 800 from (tomorrow) has only gotten one 800 so far, still pretty scarce cross country. I think 675s have been in US dealers in May/Jun.

There are 2 800's sitting in louisville. But to be honest, if you have the means, the finish on the 1090's are better than the 800. Little more attention to detail when you put them side to side.

I was originally in the market for an 800 but as soon as I saw the 1090 next to it I went for it.

Think I have to agree - the finish and workmanship on the 1090 is little cut above the B3. Also I heard that 800 had a issue which was identified by MV and they have sent news heads to Fast By Ferraci to get all teh B3's recalls taken care off.

Any idea how much FBF is asking for the left of 2012 1090R - I can alwasy call em

My dealer told me to stay away from the B3 800, said it's full of problems and to keep my 2009 1078RR as mv has never had that level of quality since the sale of the brand later that year. Specifically he said the throttle was very "twitchy" and not in a good way, among other issues.
I've never had a problem with my '09 (knocking on wood) and while I don't ride it as my primary bike, I've got about 11,000 miles on it.

Hi Chan,i never rode a 990R when is was looking for my bike,but i rode a 920 and the 1090R+RR back to back and im no Rossi but i could pick the difference in the steering and the Monobloc brakes are a great experience,as with the whole bike, have brilliant feel once fully run in, from the experience of my bike i'd have no quarms using it daily,i've had no cooling,stalling(it did in the first few k's)idle problems,from what i can gather the more you ride it the better,the only problem(touch wood)has been the LH mirror pod came loose and there is a bit of freeplay in the rear hub cush drive rubbers which i'll get done before the warranty runs out,otherwise its got better and better,actually what sold me was riding the RR with 4000ks of magazine demo bike use,it was much nicer to ride than the new one and i wonder if people don't get enough k on their bikes before they start complaining,i see these post saying you can run them in in a 100k-piston and rings OK but they rev better after a few 1000 in my opinion and the gearbox is Heaps better.Cheer Steve

The 1090RR is the flagship for the newer Brutale. Any other model is still very desirable. If the 1090RR fits your budget, that's what I would go for.
