MV Agusta Brutale 1090 2013

The above bike is here in Michigan and I have a few questions if you could help me here in making a decision.


The dealer wants 15K for the bike. Is that a fair price for a year old bike?


Are there any inherent issues with this motorcycle? Is it reliable?


I plan on using it as a 2nd bike. It will never be redlined, road hard or anything other abuse. I just have always admired MV's and this seems to be a good choice. Primarily as a ride to go to bike nights or local events.


Is it rider friendly for city driving?


To give a little background on my riding style I have a Honda ST1300 with 106K on it. I am 60 yr. old. The bike has never been redlined or for that matter much over 6K in revs and for the high 90 percentile I am in 5th gear by 40 mph.


The Brutale really caught my eye. The seating position is comfortable for what I will be using it for. I doubt I will breach 3K a year on it.


So any insights, info, warnings or advice would be appreciated.


Thanks in advance for your input!


Dennis

The 1090 is an excellent all-around bike. I think you will surprise yourself and put many more than 3k on it in a year. I don't think $15k is unreasonable for a year old new bike.

I"m assuming it's a 1090RR?

A dealer in CO is selling a new 2013 1090RR for $14,500. $15K for a new 1090RR sounds reasonable.

It is a new 2013 1090 ABS, not an RR. No miles on it.

$15K is the MSRP, so basically there is no discount for it being a 1 model year old bike. Given this is the price range for the 2013 1090RR (MSRP around $19K), I would expect the 1090 ABS to be less than $13K. I'd keep looking.

The 1090RR I pointed you to on Ebay would be the same price when you add in the ~$500 for shipping.

That is 15k OTD. He is asking 14k for it.

Still sounds high Gug. Send your dealer these links below and get him to drop the price another $1K. Good luck.

I agree the 1090 ABS (they don't sell the R) is a good choice for your style since it's power and torque is lower in the rpm range than the RR. Though I think either would deliver impressive performance for you and may "inspire" you to push a bit more Regardless, you won't be disappointed in performance.

Heck, with the exchange rate, you might want to look North of the border and get a "10% Discount".

Speed is relative, but fast is fast.

I was browsing the forum and came across what appears to be an issue.

Is this an inherent issue in all the Brutale's?

I wouldn't worry about this. The first time I rode a 1090RR (same engine tune as the 2013 1090 I believe) is after I bought mine. I was expecting it to be a snatchy throttle beast. It's not. It's actually fairly docile around town. You do have to be precise with the throttle control, though. I find this to be the case on a lot of fuel injected bikes, like my 8V Guzzis. The only time it can be a bit snatchy is if you are coasting off the throttle to a low speed in 1st gear, then crack the throttle open a little. I find it best to use some clutch control for this situation.

I'm finding it to be a fairly comfortable, and easy to ride, gonzo bike. I love it!
