Brutale 920 vs Street Triple R 2013

Hello,

I am currently riding a Brutale 920 MY 2012. Today I realized that a triumph dealer has opened in town. Before getting my MV I was aiming to get the new ST R but couldn't since there were no Triumph dealer.

What is your take on switching from a B920 to a ST R. I like to hear your thoughts, pros and cons, etc...

Thanks

Definitely the ST R. Less there are people using a MV Agusta, more special my MV is.
Depending on where you are based, the ST R is most certainly cheaper to service.
ST R probably drinks less petrol than MV because all bikes do, even without the fuel leaking from the connectors.
Joke aside, the ST R was my first choice. Then I saw this. Vanity, vanity, vanity.

I had a street triple for four fantastic years, road it all over Europe on road trips . It was a great bike .
I've had my 920 for two years and test rode a new STR a couple of months ago and was quite prepared to trade the MV in there and then if it was as good as I remembered mine was.
After a couple of hours riding I thought it was a nice bike but it didn't win me over . On the ride home I thought, what were you thinking? You have the best naked bike going right here, why was I even looking at anything else?
For me the Triumph had a lower seat height,used less fuel and i've got a dealer 15 mins away, they were the only real positives .

Doggy having ridden both bikes, how does the B920 compares to the ST R in terms of handling and power?
xeorex I totally get your point, but you know how one always thinks that other bikes are better than his? well this is where I am now, that's why I need to hear other thoughts...

Isn't that like giving up Cinderella for the ugly step sister?

Speed is relative, but fast is fast.

Why give yourself such a dilemma, it's OK to have 2+ bikes.

I've ridden an STR and lovely bike that it is, it didn't excite me in the slightest. Now I've never ridden an MV (no demo's around here) but I know I want to own one. That to me says it all.

If there is one brand that would convert someone to riding a bike, you just have to show them an MV. Job done.

It is such a good think we must wear a helmet,
It hides that smug face you can't stop having while riding this bike.
She does give that feeling

At the end of the day, both bikes are more than my skills can handle, but I love my MV because people literally stop and stare when I ride by.

I wouldn't give that up for better fuel performance, a lower seat height or a few extra dollars saved on servicing.

Go with the bike that gives you the biggest hard on!
