I'm a Moron BUT!!

Can someone tell me why the Brutale 1090 has only 144hp The motor by looking at the specs looks the same as last years F4. 1078 cc , 13:1 compression, same bore and stroke......Is it possible to get the same HP out of this engine?

Oh that's an easy one. They're detuned so that the fairies who ride them don't get into trouble. The F4, being a real man's machine, delivers all the power available. Hi Randy!!!!!

They have over estimated the hp numbers on the F4 because the F4 riders, lacking in the manhood department, need something to brag about.

I think the difference is in the air intake system and fueling that makes less power than the F4 (also Lee's statement as well)
I think they have different injectors as well.


There is a way to get the same amount of power...








you just have to buy an F4

If at first you don't succeed, use a hammer instead

144 maybe doesn't sound much, but when you open it up in 3rd gear to overtake a car and realize your front wheel is up high in the sky, although you didn't go WOT, you realize that 144 is a conservative estimate and that the catch is in the torque number.

Hi, all the same but for a naked bikes it's good! If you want more HP then visit to any MV dealer or MV site and buy some performance parts and make it reach near to 200HP.
Good luck and drive safe.

I have another big horsepower sport bike so no fairies here. I would like to know what the suite of performance parts that MV is referring to acually is. I don't need 200hp on a naked, however. I have sent a couple emails about this to MV, but no answer.
