I am buying a 2010 Brutale 990R, anybody have suggestions on where to buy, what costs to expect, service costs/recommendations, etc!

Why a 990 and not a 1090? Or, for that matter, why not a 910 or 1078?

Have you ridden any or all of the above?

I live in Colorado, have never ridden a Brutale or any MV for that matter. I picked the 990r b/c of the price...15's my limit!

Sheesh...with a $15K budget, I would go a 1078 in a heartbeat. Also depends on how much bike experience you have?

If you have not got a lot of experience on a rocket ship - I would recommend an 910R, as the 1078 can be very brutal(e)...

I spent a day thrashing a 990R in all sorts of riding (freeway, canyon, city, etc.) and it is, without a doubt, a fantastic bike out of the box. It is comfortable, easy to ride and it will outpace a mildly modified 910R from 120mph to 150mph (although the 910R will accelerate faster due to the lighter rotating assembly, but once it stretches its legs the 990R just motors right on by). That said, however, I am not quite smitten.

Personally, I think the 910R is a much more exciting motorcycle to ride.

My advice is that you'd probably be better served buying a used 910R or 1078R and spending the leftover cash-o-la on suspension and ECU tuning and, once that's done, maybe some carbon or titanium Yum Yum parts. It's my belief that you'll end up with a much more enjoyable motorcycle than the current Brutale offerings from MV.

Just my $.01 ... I'm keeping the other penny.

I would also cosider how tall you are. If you are a tall bloke go for the 990/1090, they will suit you more then the old models. Or else its just a matter of getting some new parts to improve the riding position on the old ones i guess.

I almost bought one from Fay Myers in Denver.. there is a 2009 1078 there and they will sell it for 13k. Talk to Bryan Penny and tell them Aaron in FLA sent you(maybe I will get a t-shirt). Buy it!!! you wont regret it. My brother has already looked at it. He lives in Denver-

good luck. i hope they still have it. Send me a PM if you need to

Ive only been riding for a few months. I ride for about 10 hours a day and have had some extensive training but im still very much a rookie. I've got alot to think about but man, im just in love with the looks of the 2010 brutale...although its hard not to love the others as well! Thanks all for the advice...I'll let u know what i do for sure!

Why so much emphasis on the 910R? Surely you would struggle to get one of those new now, and it's been completely outclassed by the 989 and 1078RR.

The 989 and 1078RR are the best of the original Brutes and you can still buy one new (old stock) absolute bargains, faster then the 910R or 910S and yet easier to ride and live with,

and most importantly compared to the 990 and 1090 the 989 and 1078 are the original Brute designed by the great Mr Tamburini. = More character then the latest offerings, although not neccesarily better.

The real point of the matter is, whatever brute you can get you really can't be dissapointed. the Brutes wipe the floor with every other naked on the marker including the Ducati SF.

i like the refined nature of the 1090, however, my pocketbook/Marco is saying that i should be able to live with a leftover 1078 and use the saved monies towards improving the ECU and suspension.

I've got a 2008 910R with 8500 miles. It has 400mi on a recent service and brand new rear wheel bearings, brand new Michelin Power Ones, and a brand new headlight replaced under warranty by MV USA. All work performed by Pro Italia since new.

I'd take $9500.

gtedeschi - Take this blokes bike. Don't get the 910S if a 910R can be had for just a bit more.
