I have my eye on upgrading to an MV and the 1090 or 1090R are at the top of the list. So far no dealers have been able to give me a straight answer as to when they will arrive here. Does anyone have info on when we should be expecting to see them at US dealers? I've been told that the Brutale 800 should be arriving in May and the 1090 would be before that. I'm in SoCal if that helps.

I'm getting the buying itch and the other option is a Tuono. Left over 12's have some hefty discounts right now but I want to test both.

Thanks! :brutale:

Yo LynxFX,

I have allready had my 1090R delevered about 6 weeks ago.
Haven't had the chance to ride it as its freezing cold out here in Europe.

Was in the same boat as you. Did the test with the Tuono and it was over. Gas response did not work in any way. Much hesitation in the throttle and in some ways annoying to ride.
Front design is ugly (i my opinion) and bike is very thirsty!
And what definitely broke it for me: i like to take a look at my bike in my garage. Something that makes me smile. Can't say nothing wrong with the design of the 2013 Brutie!

My dealer also told me the US would only get the 1090 and the 1090RR.
Probably no 1090R for you guy's....

Thanks for the info. I still want to test ride both back to back. Sounds like the 1090's are on their way so I should get that opportunity soon enough.

I'm probably one of the few that really likes the look of the Tuono, especially in yellow. It just has that alien oddity look to it. Slap on a Transformers autobot sticker and it would fit right in. The Brutale is beautiful in a completely different way.

Probably the biggest negative for me is the range on the Tuono. 100 miles would get quite annoying, especially if going on group rides. "Hey guys, please stop, I need to fill up....again." On the other hand you can get a left over MY12 for $3k off right now.

Well there you go, they are already here. :yo:

Escondido is a bit of a drive at the moment. Might need to get down there in the next couple weeks.
