F4-1000 vs Brutale S in the mags.

While picking up my Robb Report for the Brutale article, I saw the April issue of Road Runner mag has a face off between the F4 and Brutale S.

The F4 won by a hair, but the last sentence read: " For '06, the Brutale comes equipped with a 910cc engine pushing out 137hp in a package weighing the same as the 750 version. If that's not a rematch in the making, I don't know what is."

Don't bother downsizing. You can e-mail them to me or upload them to the gallery. Zip and e-mail might be better to [email protected]

I had a huge dilemma choosing between my SPR and a 1000. In the end I went with the SPR because it was different, and the article says that the Brutale was outpaced because of the engine on the 1k, but never losing sight. If that's the case with a Brutale, then F4 750 owners shoudn't have an after thought about upgrading. I'm glad I got the SPR, it really is different, and I think it was the pinnacle of the 750's...am I right on that? Meaning it was the last of the special models?

Great Article, Airfuel!! I was just about to go and look for the damn magazine, then I saw that it was scanned in. Another read to add to this crazy obsession.

RVM, I don't think you would of made any bad choices given the two bikes you were debating between. You just got an "exclusive" bike amongst an already exclusive marque. Congrats on the new bike!!
