Real Rides: Marie’s MV Brutale 675

You might recognize from that episode we taught average riders motorcycle skills. In it, she was pretty but since, she’s been hard to get better. The reward for all hard work? A brand new MV Brutale 675.

Not bad for a college

“I followed and passed all the CA and licensing prerequisites, like the nerdy girl I am, to get my M1. Then I a dumb amount of [college] on the cutest little 200cc cafe I could find off of Craigslist. I much felt like a badass Lisbeth Salander I brought it home.

That didn’t last very because, the next morning, the wouldn’t start and it had leaked a smelling liquid all over the floor. I hadn’t the slightest how to fix it myself and felt intimidated at the of trying and ending up making worse. The only other I knew who rode was my brother like me, he was clueless and lazy DIY mechanics. A local bike sorted things eventually and I was able to scoot around the streets of LA.”

“Too soon (or finally), I up the courage to ride my brother’s to and from LA to Santa Monica for I didn’t even ask if he was cool it. It was big deal moving around 450 pounds of metal. Not to mention I the fine art of balancing on one foot — I’m tall and that thing four or five times my

I kept that up until the was sold and puttered around more on the 200. Soon, I have a somewhat serious and that shook me up physically and It turns out that wearing a 3/4 jeans, Timberlands and a flimsy jacket from Zara being side swept by tires on a Dodge Ram is a big no-no.”

She upgraded from the Honda “I was fed up with all the time and money put working on it. There was no point to so I sold it. It’s a good the Craigslist market for cafe in LA is at a premium these days.” She from a track day with how to become a safer and better “I knew afterwards I had to get a different, bike with actual (i.e. brakes), not to mention brakes would’ve probably me from the previously mentioned

She ended up purchasing a brand new MV.

In MV Agusta introduced the Brutale a three-cylinder … sports based on the fully-faired F3. Its a lightweight fighter that’s also a It makes 110 bhp, 48 lb.-ft. of and weighs just 368.2 lbs

Despite the eight-level traction that’s a ton of bike for a new rider, one as small as Marie.

Why She Rides It

“First things I wanted a real motorcycle. I something new and exclusive, something designed and innovative that excite me with a seriously edge — all the while having a weight and seat height for my

“I narrowed my search down to — essentially the modern day cafe The smart choice would’ve the new Honda CB500F. but it wouldn’t excited me one bit.

However, the MV F3 got me worked up — even as a fully-faired When the sales guy at my local mentioned a … version soon, nothing else and I knew instantaneously that was to be the bike.

I waited 16 bike-less since that day for the Brutale It was insane and nobody really why I would do that to myself. One of the it took so damn long was the bikes were put on hold US homologation and on top of that an extra CA approval.

It was a relief on 26 when I finally rode on a piece of motorcycle art. the dealer, I fumbled with the throttle, trusting the foreign and ergonomics of this serious When I got on the freeway, I thought I was accelerating to merge with when I looked down to see I was some serious speed at 88

In the beginning, I set myself up a couple limits and practiced MSF skills so as to reduce my risk of moments and dangerous situations. I hitting up local canyons I was astounded by how smooth and quick the turns into corners. My of grinning and squealing come whenever the revs begin to and let me tell you things get bananas 7,000 rpm. This is a rev happy and mean canyon

Did I mention the quick shifter is a of a lot of fun to use? I can’t wait to it to the track to see what it’s capable of.

“The initial euphoria has yet to wear off. I’m to admit I check out my bike time as I walk away parking it. I ride it everyday, for everything.

I recently did my first road trip — by myself too — the ‘Laguna Seca Pilgrimage’ to watch the MotoGP. On the road were varying bits of splitting, sweeping canyons, straight-line desert, windy and foggy mist by the sea cliffs. Not did the Brutale slip.

I knew all I made the happiest personal in motorcycles. 

I’ve noticed a few knick about the Italian inline-three’s Torque is there with a twitch of the wrist and the front end mind lifting up. At least, my wheelies turned into power wheelies.

The brakes have a strong but they aren’t too grabby so plenty for the street.

I’ve started to mess around different engine map settings and control levels. I have maps set for commuting and another for I never use sport mode the ride-by-wire throttle is unpredictable.

the low-rpm fueling can be a bit choppy and This especially grinds my when I’m maneuvering in slow, situations. 
My OCD kicks in when the indicator flashing in between on the dash.

“Beside those two bits MV needs to fix, I every part of my motorcycle.”

If you closely you can see frame sliders.

my bike even arrived at the I ordered Evotech frame plus front and rear sliders — because RideApart Wes Siler told me to, and a tail kit. I very badly to do more mods but I just a load of money on track a one-piece suit, and riding I have to take it easy.

I do want add a steering damper, in the suspension for my weight and riding and get the fancy Zero exhaust Look that one up on YouTube .”

But, a girl!

“As a young woman, motorcycles is as fun as it gets for me. Riding fast and skillfully is even exhilarating. There are a bunch of us out and we’re growing in numbers. I first hand that difficult and scary to learn but is no greater reward than something you thought you couldn’t do.

I the motorcycle industry is finally notice and tailoring bikes and for us more readily. There has been a better time to riding.”
