I work at a multi line dealership in Hawaii and from time to time an MV shows up. There are not many on this island so it rarely happens. Guy said it was a 2006 Brutale 910R if I remember correctly. Looks to be in good condition with low miles. Anyone have any info on these? He was meeting someone here to work out a trade for their RSV4. I personally like his bike better, the RSV4 was a bit beat up and was in a wreck from the looks of it.

Any paperwork with this bike?
My initial thoughts were one of the following:
A 750 Brutale Oro or
A Brutale 910S with some tasty upgrades or
A Brutale 910S with some items painted to replicate a Brutale 750 Oro.

I say 910S because I thought the 910R was released with radial brakes, not the axially mounted ones above. I may be wrong. See VIN info below.

I took a screenshot to eliminate one option and I think this frame plate (below) is made of magnesium. Standard frame plates on a Brutale 910S (or 910R) were grey and made of aluminium.
I can see the horizontal machining in the frame plate that is unique to these magnesium parts. That is a very good sign.
If the machining lines are there, then it is either option 1 or 2 above.

The 10th digit of the VIN will identify the year and a picture of the top triple clamp will definitely help confirm this.
The Butale Oro 750, just 300 made, had a gold coloured magnesium lower triple clamp / frame side plates / wheels & swingarm, as can be seen on this bike. They also had plenty of carbon, which I don't see on this bike.
Replicas were made, some with just a paint job, some with the correct parts.
So, I want to say 910S with several tasty components to replicate a Brutale 750 Oro.

The faint horizontal lines in the image below indicate that this part is made of magnesium!

The frame plates looked very similar to the ones on my Tamburini but these were gold. The kid didn’t really know much about his own bike. He bought it about a year ago he said. I didn’t get much info like the vin number or more pics. He was asking me what we thought a value on it was but I wasn’t able to give him an educated answer.

It’s a Brutale Oro. In addition to the magnesium wheels and frame plates, You can tell by the orange colored passenger seat. The later Brutale has a red passenger seat. It’s probably worth around $10k.

On closer look, I’d say probably not a Brutale Oro after all. The magnesium wheels and frame plates may have been added, but there are a number of missing things if this was a true Oro. Front fender should be carbon fiber not painted red. Air intake and under tank cover should be carbon fiber not plastic. It does not have the correct “serie Oro“ sticker on the silver piece by the headstock. The taillight cover should be cf, not plastic. i Would first look at the last 6 digits of the vin, if it’s higher than 000300, not an Oro.

I Agree. I was typing this up as you posted that:

I don't think it is an Oro.
The reason is that the Oro, and it looks like you have one, has these parts in carbon:

Whereas this one has plastic components:

You are correct about it being probably a 910S Dave. 910R came with radial calipers and also Ultra-Light wheels, not the stars.
@gen2rt ... All the red passenger seats turn orange after time in the sun....which there is plenty of in Hawaii.

Can always look at the handlebars. Oros have a gold plate on the clamp. This doesn't seem like an oro bc of the non carbon fiber parts but they could have been replaced. Hard to find carbon fiber replacements if they were ever damaged
