I expected this bike to get a perfect 10.0 review. There is no denying the appeal of the Brutale but at 20k and a limited dealer network I find it lacking. The comparo will be very interesting to say the least. Nice job all way around.

"Given the proper performance enhancements, a Honda Civic can post some respectable lap times, but a Porsche it will never be. The same analogy applies to owning an MV versus owning a more pedestrian brand, and only the person purchasing the bike can calculate the value of MV Agusta ownership."

Well said.

I don't get it, but I'm glad it exists.

It's "only" $16.5K, just $500 more than the Triumph S3R.

I got stuck on the rr pricing. I like many others have lusted after a Brutale or Tuono. The S3R at 16k and a better dealer network looks like the better bike so far. The comparo should put all questions to rest. At least we can trust MO for a true unvarnished no manufacturer propaganda true evaluation.

Glad you see and appreciate our efforts! We love all three of these bikes, so picking a winner won't be easy.

The first part of that is subjective. The factory streetfighter thing in general is what I don't get.
