The bike is insane to ride and it still gets a lot of attention I got the thumbs up 3 times this morning...the drawback is going on long distance rides I get tired of hauling a heavy back pack and there is not very much room on the passenger seat for a day bag although I did rig up a pack for my saddle sore 1000 ride. I think I will be buying a ktm super duke gt...
I use with satisfaction Kriega US bags
I have a US10 and a US20, which i can lock to the tank and tail very quickly and very safely
I made more than one tour, couple of them of over a week and more than 3000km of mountains road with those bags. and they work great

hopefully this helps

New Dragster and there has been a problem since the beginning with hunting/surging between 2000/5000 revs.

Been back to the dealer and following advice from MV's, re-mapped, new gaskets, sensors and throttle bodies fitted.

Definitely improved, by there is still a hint of the problem that does make uncomfortable riding

Looking to contact dealers to try to compare with a demo or find another owner with the same model.

Any members experienced such a problem?

Bruce,

Thanks for sharing, and best of luck on resolution. Brand new bike and new gaskets, sensors and TBs?? Really?
Not encouraging.

Play it safe, ask your dealer about extended warranty. Not sure if they offer one where you live though. I bought an extended warranty for additional 5 yrs/no limits on mileage before my Brute factory warranty expired.

If I recall, my dealer said 2018-7 MV have a standard 3 year warranty? Is this true? Extended warranty makes a lot of sense with these machines. Frankly, I am pretty conflicted the more I research the Brutale design. I do appreciate honest feedback from owners.

Standard warranty is 3yrs, the extended warranty i got adds another 5 on top of that. When buying a "left over" bike (or car), make sure it wasn't RDR'ed, or reported to factory as delivered which happens if the "left over" is pressed into demo service. Dealers RDR the unsold left over vehicles to collect on "trunk money" offered by factory to dealer so that it can be passed as additional discounts to the buyer. Problem is warranty starts ticking on the day the vehicle is declared as retail delivered. Make sure what you are looking at something that has a full warranty remaining. If not, then try to get the dealer to kick in an extended warranty as part of the deal.

Tirefriar,

Thanks for your advice on extended warranty. Very good point indeed. So, one more trip (home to Colorado) soon, then back in town for a change. Focus will shift to the MV decision. Best bike prices around TEXAS usually is during fall/hurricane months. Dealer might give me a break? I do have a lot of confidence in my dealer given experience with my Moto Guzzi.

Back in town, in Houston. I am going to talk seriously with my local MV dealer about a yellow/black 2018 Brutale RR he has in stock.
We will see what happens. If it has been titled, and the 3 year warranty is reduced he would have to give a discount to get me on board. Looking to trade my 2015 Triumph Street Triple 675 RX. I have not ridden the 800 MV, but did test a 675 triple MV a few years back and was impressed, but did not like the snatchy low end in Houston city traffic.

We will see what develops. Love my Triumph, but wow the MV is something all together else.

Any advice?
