Brutale Model Comparison?

Not my usual part of the forum, but after a winters worth of contemplating, I'm considering a move to the "dark side" (or is that "softie" side???) ..... Is there anywhere where a list of the bhp & torque specs of the various B4 models are given? It's quite confusing with 910, 920, 989, 990, & 1078 variants all available (I don't want a 750), let alone getting into S, R, RR, etc., .....

So which model had what power, and which is the nicest to ride? Which is the torquey one, and which is the screamer? is one restricted compared to another? can extra gee-gee's be liberated from one easier/cheaper than another?

There are 920, 990 & 1078 variants for sale not too far from me, of differing ages, mileages and price ....... so I guess one answer would be to ride all three ..... if the weather and road conditions were a little nicer at present!!

This is an interesting article comparing the 2012 Brutale 1090R vs 1090RR. http://www.Motorcycle-USA.com/219/14...RR-Review.aspx

Basically, the 'R' generates more hp and torque until the 'RR' hits 9500 rpm.

Also slight differences in geometry (8mm longer wheelbase in 1090RR over 1090 and 1090R), better suspension and brakes to consider.

I have a 920 and am no expert

I think pre and post 2010 is the biggest difference e.g pre oil filter is a remove the radiator to get to it, post like my bike it is in the oil sump under a cap _ they are a total redesign gen 1 and gen 2 if you like

Other than that its minor component / capacity differences

I've only ridden the 920 but power wise it has plenty and there is further power if you wanted to chip it so I would not worry too much about power in your decision unless you are a very experienced rider 150 cc difference shouldn't be a world of difference

I could be wrong so please correct me

but the 910 S or R, are brutal much more fun , you have ride these ones not pilot them
easy way to describe the Brute range from newest to the 910
its the difference of riding a very nice chubby chick gets you there in comfort ,.. then theres the great looker huge hooters gets you there to quick .,, then theirs the animal bitch RIDES YOU FOR AGES does everything you want twice over and leaves you with a huge smile and memories to take to the grave (thats the 910)

i have a form of dislexia as i have said plenty of time and it dont bother me .................. but im not stupid or a tard so dont try it on


MV Brutale's go faster than a crackheads dole payment and that's fast

I WAS A BIKER BEFORE IT BECAME A FASHION STATEMENT

Me thinks someone owns a 910 ;0) all good I feel about the same about my brutale, some how I always think of "this is SPARTA" and my bike kicking me into a pit if I don't watch myself anyway I think they all probably perform better than the jap equivalent esp in the torque department and they all certainly please my eyes its nice owning the most beautiful bike I've ever seen

I believe from larger rake angle Dons. I suppose they wanted to make the RR a little more stable to cope with the extra ponies. There is a good R/RR comparison at this link: (2012 models)
