Brytale Choice

Does anyone have any thoughts on the recent model Brutale 675 & 800? I'm thinking about a purchase now. This will be my first MV Augusta experience and I'm a little worried about the maintenance since the nearest dealer to me is about 6 hours away. I'm strictly a pleasure rider - will probably never get to a track. I'm looking at the Street Triple R against the Brutale. My head tells me the Triumph, my heart the MV.

Given a choice, and money not an issue, the Brutale 800 would be my choice. The Triumph is nice but the MV is nicer.
As for maintenance...MVs are very easy to work on, and extremely reliable if maintained properly....initial satisfaction will depend on quality of dealer set-up...

Bottom line is....your choice. If you go with your heart you will likely never have second thoughts.....but only you can decide.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

If you buy the MV (and you should) please learn to type a little more carefully so we don't make fun of you. Welcome to the forum

Brytale.... thats made by MV Agysta, right?
Just be careful never to type MV Augusta (or Aygysta) and you'll be fine, Tony.

We're all here, but we're not all there.

Give the poor guy a break, he's just joined - Y is after all right next to U on the keyboard, so I reckon more typo than misspelt, also once you hit send you can't edit titles BTW - make sure you have auto correct off or the Augusta - Agusta thing will really haunt you! I know!

Most important of all,Welcome aboard Tony.

My advice is when it comes to motorcycles any smack-down between head & heart should see the heart kick the crap out of the head after all the correct bike is meant to nourish the soul & the soul certainly can't be nourished if the heart is not in it.

I've never made a single decision with the head or by (God forbid) ticking boxes when it comes to bikes hence a stable full of MVs and more to come

As you said, you are a pleasure rider, the MV WILL pleasure you no doubt about that, especially the 800.

Imagine opening the garage door when your going for a ride, which bike is going to stir the soul most.

Is the the MV a dream bike? If so, make your dream a reality!
If not, go with the one that gives you piece of mind.
Personally, the dream is alive and fracking awesome!!!!!

Do it! Do it now! Don't be a girlie man.

I have the 800 Brutale and I love it. It is powerful and can and will demand your full attention. Remember it is not called the 800 powder puff but Brutale. The street triple is nice but it is more powder puff. Ride it with that in mind and you will be ok. She is one nice looking bike. She will blow ladies skirts up and make you go into cold sweets, thinking about how much fun she is to ride.
