I have been lurking here for a little while taking in all the wisdom. Well, I went to Pro Italia today to check out bikes and they have four 1078's there 2 white, one red and one black. I liked the white a lot, but the red one really speaks to me. In terms of ergos the 1078 fit me like a glove, so no issues there. I feel pretty smitten with the Brutale, so the question becomes, do I get a good deal on an '09 or wait for the 1090 to hit early next yr with the TC and smoother power delivery for a few extra $$? I already have a Hyper and a few other bikes, so the wait won't be a big deal. What are your thoughts? Thx in advance.
