Considering new 910S vs Speed Triple

A little help for a newbie.

Previously, I owned a 06 Triumph Speed Triple, (great preformer) as a results of a crash with a cager I am shopping for a new bike. I was considering anew Speed Triple but I went to the local Dealer saw the 910 S and fell in love. the bike is BEAUTIFUL, the mags seem to love it. What is your opinion, Speed triple or 910S

I haven't been able to test drive (dealer won't permit) so I am trying to get as much input that I can.

S3 it a beast no doubt, but it doesn't handle like the Brutale, nor is it anywhere near as nice, or as reliable.

You ask on an MV forum? Brutale of course...

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

I haven't ridden a Brutale but I have had a go on the speed triple and I didn't like it one bit. Funny, because I also rode the Sprint ST (with the same engine) and I thought that was a great bike.

Brutale gives you one extra cylinder, S3 one extra headlight. This could be difficult.

ride both bikes
the speed triple is a nice bike
but..... there is NO bike like the Brutale

you don't have to believe us.... because, afterall, this IS the MV forum

but.....
send 1,000 folks to ride BOTH bikes
and 1,000 will pick the Brutale.... IF they were the VERY SAME PRICE
but, they are not
so....
only YOU can decide if the BRUTALE is worth the extra money TO YOU

I am already hooked ....it is the Brutale....regardless of being on this site or not. The thing is beautiful. I just want to be reassured. Good to hear that some members believe it will be more reliable.

I have spent the last several months on the RAT (Triumph S3 site) and they are quite passionate, it is a nice bike, very easy to ride, power in the right places but missing refinement.

As I explained to a friend, a Corvette Z06 can out perform a Porsches but a Corvette is a Corvette and a Porsche is a Porsche. As they say "there is no subsitute" and the Brutalle is a Ferrari!

i was also surprised initially to find out that the MV was one of the most reliable bikes on the road.

honestly...
everytime i even LOOK at my brutale i know that i made the right decision....
but..... to get on it and ride
heavenly
it surprises me in the best way possible each time i head down the road
