Got to go on about a 100 mile ride yesterday with my riding buddies on the Brutale with its new Ohlins shock and new Pirelli Diablo Rossa Corsa tires. If you want to really improve the handling of your Brutale I would highly recommend both of these products. The shock totally removes the harshness of the stock shock. You have great control and bump compliance at the same time. The new tires are a step up from the Diablo Corsa IIIs that they replace.
