G'day Guys and Gals

I'm a newbie here on the site and Was wondering what feedback and review's I could get of a Brutale 750. I've just jumped off a Guzzi Sport 1100, and have been without a bike for a while. There is a good Brutale for sale for $8000 which Im looking at getting pending a test ride and a few reviews.

Anyway thanks guys

Tim

Where are you located? If you are in the US, that asking price is about $3000 too high for a 750. You're looking at an '04 right?

Other than the fact that they are both Italian, the Guzzi and MV have nothing in common.

The 750s were largely trouble free. I don't remember reading about any of SPU issues with them. It is a great bike. Send a pm to John (fazer 6). He rode his for something like 50,000 miles.

Yeah no worries, I knew I could get some info off someone on here.

I also dont know much about the bike yet, other than its a 750. Still have not seen it, and not putting any money on it until I do, The man himself will call me tonight about a few details on it and I might go and see it tomorrow perhaps. As for the asking price from what I could find the usual asking price seemed to be $10,000-10,500 AUD.

From what I have heard this bike is having some leaning out problems when it gets hot. Apparantly the fix for that is a Power commander chip which fixes it....I hope.

I didnt think the guzzi and MV would have much in common other than the two have wheels and run on fuel. Are they that amazing to ride the Brutale's?

Oh God yes :brutale::mouthwate:
I have always had a pin up poster of the F4's but when the Brutale's came out, I always knew I had to have one. Its not bad, I had my Guzzi since I was 18, and Im now 22. I wouldnt have thought too many 22 year olds would have a MV of all things.

Im headed out today to go and see if I can test ride one just too see, but what makes them so good?

lol fair enough, Must be the Typical Italian thing like the experience you have when you drive an Alfa Romeo full tilt through a twisty mountain.....I suppose you would get plenty of looks on these things?

Where abouts are you from Outback?

To start with, the chicks really dig 'em. That enough? :smoking:
hahaha fair enough.

Ok here goes:

I took a 750 Brutale out for a run thismorning, and what a machine!!! It was love at first sit! and yes i mean sit, I sat on it and fell in love. I then asked the dealer to take me for a run on it, I had a old Granny of all people looking at it when I rode past. The local counsel workers all stopped to have a look at it at the lights and were trying to get me to pop a wheelie. Which it does in first and second quite easily!.

For a 750 I didn't quite expect it to go so damn hard, its certainly something special. Its very light in the steering and I found it quite polite in the light traffic I had to put up with, but oh my god how good are they around a few corners.

The only gripe I have with it is the throttle is so sensitive, im sure I can get used to it, but the other thing is the Mirror's, How on earth do you adjust them???

I will be waiting on the first owner to get back to me tonight to see if he wants to sell it or not, but as far as im concerned there will be a brut coming to live here!!! :brutale::brutale:

I dont know how many times I got that with the Guzzi of mine, and everyone would say, "Oh you gotta be careful of those bikes you know, when you accelerate they throw themselves down on one side!!!".....Uh huh mate, yep no worries!

I reckon that'd be a good trip Outback out to Birdsville! hahaha
