After lusting for a Brutale for the past year or so, I finally found the bike I had been searching for ...... for sale on this site. I recently purchased MVITALIAN's (Mark) 2006 Brutale, and had it shipped to sunny California.

Mark had taken very good care of the bike from the beginning. He supplied all records, manuals, CD's, stands, etc. with the purchase -- this was a bike that he truly cherished and was passionate about. He had already installed a CF Rear Hugger, CF Instrument Cluster Cover, Clear Alternatives Brake Light and Turn Signal Lenses, Rizoma License Plate Hanger, and a CF Tail. He had also installed the MV Corse Race Exhaust, EPROM, and had the bike Dyno Tuned by Corse Superbikes in Wisconsin (they did an excellent job).

After spending a lot of time on this site, I was already pretty tuned in to what I wanted to do to the Brute when I received it. While waiting for the bike to arrive, I got busy on the internet ordering parts. Thanks to all who post on this site ..... your information served me well!

When the bike arrived, there were a few boxes of goodies waiting to be installed:

Gilles Rearsets, titanim finish
CF Air Intake Covers
CF Key Guard
CF Radiator Trim
CF Chain Guard
CF Swingarm Guard
CF Wire Covers
Arrow Titanium Steering Damper
CRG Lane Split Mirrors
Motovation Bar Ends (Vibration Dampening version)
Spencer Seat Modification


I am really happy with this bike.... the Brutale is a blast to ride, and is perfect for the crappy stop 'n go traffic we have here a times as it doesn't overheat. And when the traffic is clear - watch out! This thing screams! I couldn't stop grinning all week. Thanks to Mark who made this transaction as simple as possible. Thanks to Ben (Odonata) who helped me pull the tank to install the CF Air intakes. And thanks for information this site provided. Here's a few pics of the new Brute:

Nice Greg, helping you with this bike is going to cost me a lot of money... I am going to have a get one myself because I have caught a bad case of Brutale-itis.

Congrats again, I am very envious.

Congrats, very nice mods.
I dig the rearsets.

I would like to see the seat mod, whenever you have time, if you can post a pic.

The bike looks fantastic. I also have the Gilles rearsets in titanium on my '07 910R and they are great.

Who was the vendor for your carbon fiber? Are you happy with the quality and appearance? Don't have any CF yet, but Christmas is coming! Would value your opinion and hearing if you like the carbon that came with your ride.

CONGRATS!!! Enjoy your Brute!

I bought my Carbon Fiber from www.Carbonworld.de

I am very happy with the quality, fit, and finish for the price. I suspect that quite a few vendors contract the same production facility to produce product for them, and I believe Carbonworld may be the producer for several different brand names of carbon fiber products.

They are really a great company to work with -- the shipping is quick and cost efficient (cheap). I usually pay about 15 bucks for a shipment to Los Angeles (from Germany). I even ordered some side panels from them, and didn't like how they looked once I installed them on my bike. There was nothing wrong with the product, I just had poor judgement in my purchasing decision. Christoph (from Carbonworld) told me that it was important to him that I was happy, so he accepted a return and refunded my money in full. That's good service!

I was able to snap a few more pics today .... I can't stop looking at it! In the first pic, you can see that I attached a stainless steel lanyard to the passenger seat so I won't accidentally lose it. Easy to do, items available at your local hardware store.

Keep posting them pics, I can look at them for hours on end

only problem is! im still stuck between a brut and a 312, the more i look at the pics of your bike the more I head towards the brutale

then I go look at the 312

hell, why is life so difficult at times, hopefully the Milan show in November will help make my mind up
