Newbie questions

Hi all
must say I am delighted to be part of the forum.

I am an ex competition engine builder for cars bikes but admit to knowing absolutely nothing about MV engines.

I am currently in the process of purchasing a blue/white 2013 1090rr ABS BRUTALE . I have not been this excited since i was a kid at xmas.

a few questions that you may be able to help me with.

1.I am purchasing this bike in the UK but i live in Malta (little island in the med) I am slightely concerned about how i stand with the warranty as Malta does not have an MV dealer I am very capable of maintaining the bike but is this likely to void the warranty.

2. I have searched the web for a road test on the 2013 1090 RR but it seems as if all the magazines have not got around to riding it this year yet a link would be great if anyone knows.

3. I will be riding this bike back through europe from UK - Malta about 2000 miles are there any obvious or common faults that can be expected on this bike so I can be prepared for them and bring any spares if required.

thanks in advance

YOU LIVE IN MALTA?! My daughter and a friend will be visiting there in July. I may have questions for you, if you don't mind. Sorry, I can't help you on your warranty questions, but I would suggest posting your questions regarding the Brutale 1090RR in the Brutale section. Welcome to the forum shrek!

Sorry for the duplicate post in the general section it was suggested it would be more likely to get advice in this section.

Ha ha yes it is interesting to say the least, they do have a unique driving style .
But a really nice place to live a lot less rain than Ireland and Sicily is only a 90 min ferry ride away and the roads there are amazing.

Any advice on my questions please???

Hi From Germany!

I also got a 13 Brutale RR. Done some mods to her:
- MV Corse Race kit
- open airbox with funnels removed and these odd tubes removed:
http://www.mvagusta.net/forum/showthread.php?t=50500

plus some cosmetic changes like bar, mirrors, flashers etc.

Bike runs like hell .

No probs till now.

You will like her .

Just off the phone to a dealer,advice given was you need to check with who you are getting the bike from as to what form of warranty comes with the bike i.e. European or dealer.The European will cover certain dealers who are reconised by Mv as trained by mv mechanics that way the parts can be supllied and fitted by that dealer.However if it's dealer uk only waranty then it's null and void as it leaves the country. The guy I spoke to also said that the 2012 model 1090rr is better spec than the 2013.Hope this helps if in doubt contact your seller.
