HAD A GREAT DAY TODAY, RODE A NEW 990 BRUTALE.
FIRST I AM NOT A PRO TESTER, I HAVE OWNED A 2000 F4 AND 2006
BRUTE AND THE RIDE WAS ONLY 20 MIN.THANKS TO THE DEALER FOR
THE CHANCE TO GIT TO KNOW THE BIKE A LITTLE. FIRST IT'S A BIGGER BIKE (TALLER) REACH TO THE BARS (VERY NICE, COMFY) TRANS (SLICK)
FROM A B GRADE TO A B+. THE REST SEEMS TO BE VERY CLOSE TO THE 06S. MY THINKING (my wife sometimes questions) is that i would pay
50% more money for a bike that was 20% better (it is what money does today) BUT NOT 100% MORE MONEY THAN THE TRADE, FOR MABEY A
15% MORE BIKE. 7600 TRADE 7600 CASH+. JUST MY THINKING NOT
TRYING TO OFFEND ANYONE. WOULD APPRECIATE YOUR THINKING ON
THE MATTER....MABEY I'LL TEST THE 1090...THANKS

Well, you definitely don't buy it because of "value" (quality/price). So I'd say it'd be the one that you enjoy the most. If the difference is even 1% more bike and it's an MV then just go for it.
I for one think that with the 1090 at least aesthetics-wise they shy away from the raw aggro ideal of the previous models and turn the bike into a fashion toy to which its legendary character is secondary.

Agree with you on one part. You buy a car with your head and a bike with your heart.

But..............
I have just taken delivery today of my new 1090RR after test riding (Mates Bike) a 910. Wow what a bike, totally different machine, slick gear box, amazing chassis, incredible brakes and an amazingly smooth power delivery. They have kept the MV soul but got rid of all the niggles. Mirrors that work and an engine map that works in town but delivers incredible thrills on the open road. Worth every penny.

The 1090RR will go down in history as an absolute classic, almost certainly the best bike MV have ever produced.

Did you go to fast by ferracci? I called them a while ago about test driving the new brutale and they said no demos on the Mvs. They have demos now?

They have a 990 in, rode it a few weeks ago. But that may be because I already bought one from them *grin*
