Hello,

New to this forum, so first off hello to everyone. Considering on buying 2006 Brutale 910. It would be my first Italian bike. Although I'm interested to "test out new waters", I'm also a bit hesitant since I have no knowledge on reliability. Person who is selling has service records and bike has 11,7xx miles. Is there anything anyone could advise/suggest I should be looking for? Or perhaps convince me I shouldn't go for it? (Hard to believe though, this being MV forum)

Thanks

Welcome!

Pyliokas;

The only issues Brutales have is the blue backed SPU causing strange electrical

symptoms, check the color of the SPU back (see sticky at top of Brutale section)

And the glue on the headlight lens

Check for play in rear hub/aluminum flakes on rear wheel

My '08 910R has 32,000mi burned out 2 low beams and the tiny pin on the backside of

the side stand mount wore out ......

That is it!

Most reliable bike I've ever owned


:drummer:

theknurl,

Thats basically what ive read too, most common issues are ones that you've mentioned. SPU might have been changed, the guy only mentioned valve adjustments as service, but then again he is second owner and bought the bike at 8K miles, so perhaps original owner changed it. Light isn't an issue in my eyes. Rear wheel, well that might be, however most of people said they replaced the rear hub and that was it.

Glad to hear its a realiable bike for you. Some positives always help to make the decision. I feel that being european myself it would be a sin to not try out that italian beauty :D

Thanks.

The experts have covered all the potential issues; so let me give you the opinion of somebody who also bought a 910 as their first Italian bike (actually, first bike full stop!).

Do it!

MV ownership is a special thing; the days you can't go out for a ride, you'll spend looking at it in the garage, wanting to go out for a ride. It really is a beautiful bike compared to the alternatives and, like all MVs, lives up to the 'Motorcycle Art' strap line.

A few things to bear in mind (although most are fairly obvious).

1) This forum is an incredibly useful resource. There are a lot of knowledgeable people on here who are always happy to help a fellow owner out.

2) Aside from MV events, you will very rarely see another MV out on in the wild. I put 4-5k miles on mine last year and only saw 2/3 other MVs on the road.

3) It's Italian, therefore it comes with two specific traits. Bits are generally more expensive than other brands and embrace the bikes temperamental/less desirable attributes as unique character traits. They really do have their own personality.

4) Enjoy it, pamper it and prepare to grin like a loon whenever you ride it.

Get it bought mate :D
