Welcome to the forum! What can I say, the Brutale, and really any MV is not for everyone. Mine has nasty, firey attitude, with the looks and performance to back it up. Its an experience all to itself. If you are a new rider, I dont suggest this bike to start out with. But if you have been around the block, it a smile machine, and will occasionaly make me shit myself too.

You're right, there are some nuiances that just dont seem right for what you are paying. Fortunaltey, they all are simple fixes, most covered by warranty.

I had some electrical gremlins, turned out to be turn signal fuses. I was more suprised at the fact that the bike still used fuses for its turnsignals, than that being the problem.

Regardless, quality control is certianly up from the earlier models, some of us have not had any problems at all with their bikes. I have come to understand these irregularites as part of the "italian experience". One good ride on the bike clears up any lurking suspicion that I didnt get what i paid for, its all there.

Look at any motorcycle message board. Most of the threads seem to be about problems people are having with their bikes. Typically, people only post when they have problems and need help or want to complain. Now, check out this board. Not alot of threads about issues, mostly people praising the bikes and talking about new bits to put on their bikes.
These bikes are not perfect, but I believe they are as reliable as anything out there and a lot more fun to ride.

Not a single problem with my 910. One thing reported in every press write up on the Brutale 910 was the outstanding fit and finish. It's is the best put-together bike I've ever had. I don't aniticipate any problems with my bike.

I'll second that, not a single problem. Fit and finish that puts every other make to shame. Take a test ride and roll left and right through a high speed twisty section then cruise a freeway and turn the grip. Believe it, you will never again consider anything else. You won't even be upset with the sticker shock.
