get the triumph if you want a bike where you can get parts for it from the dealer in a few days if you need it, namely an oil filter.
get the mv if you want an exclusive bike, a bike so exclusive that the dealer won't know when they can get in an oil filter for the bike that is new so the old ones dont fit on it.
in hindsight, the 1090 i bought is a great and fun bike to ride that is not in question at all.
but when it comes to getting anything like accessories/parts, etc, and we are talking simple things like an oil filter and service manuals, its an absolute nightmare to get anything from a dealer that then has to get the parts from mv. These aren't even major parts i'm asking for these are things that MV should have sent extras to dealers with the bikes, but for some reason they didn't.
Others may say "that is the price of admission" maybe so, but its something to consider as the msrp is only the first step in the price of admission that you will pay. MV will seriously test your patience if you ever need parts for the bike.
Where are you located ? In oz you can get a new 1078rr for approx $2k cheaper than the new speed triple. The new brutale is a little more. I've owned both and agree with others comments. Both great bikes but the I'd take the MV.Help me decide on which! Pros and cons. The Brutale is like 9k more!
Yeah! +1! (1078RR...)I have just faced the same decision. Having owned and loved a S3 for the past 3 years, I had pretty strong links with the trumpet and was sad to see her go. The new model is fantastic to ride, but it lacks the outright performance of the brutale, and doesnt have many of the extras like TC and a slipper clutch. The triumph will be a better bike if you do long rides though. Its hardly slow, and has a better seat, and more leg room. Lets call it the practical solution.
So to repeat what others have said, if money matters, get the speedy and add a few extras to make it a bit special. You will still have a great bike and 5 k in your pocket. If you want the best bike, buy the MV. Its better dynamically in almost every area. And lets face it... its more cool :smoking:
As for me... I plumped for the best. Ordered my 1090rr last week!:yo:
