Yet another couple test MV Agusta Brutale 1090, HyperMotard 796

Yet another couple rides: MV Agusta Brutale Ducati HyperMotard 796


A dealer sent an e-mail they had demo units of the 990 and 1090 Brutales available. How I resist? Why would I even to resist? I’ve wanted to an MV for a long time.

I went a friend who has also been by those for quite a while. She a Ducati 620 Monster now. She the 990 and I rode the 1090.

She’s not to fours at all, and had to get used to curve, and the big hit at 8,000 rpm. She the handling to be effortless and confidence-inspiring, and said that the MV felt as big a step up from her Ducati as her did from the Honda 250 Rebel she had it.

I was *very* impressed. The handling and were stunningly good. to be, you had to make choices in suspension and Soft ride and compliance vs. control. Stability vs. response.

bike does a freakishly job of doing it all. It was comfortably and handled bumps and potholes yet smooth well-controlled and confidence-inspiring. It stable, yet was easy to turn and lightly and well in S-curves and of all shapes.

Engine-wise, it’s a and feels like it. Being a big in a light bike, it certainly lack for torque or response in any way at any You could shortshift and take it and it behaved perfectly well, or you wick it up a bit and get some real at any time.

It had a kind of funny exhaust as if a great ogre was gargling his somewhere deep in the system. The said he has had very little with the engines on the MVs, but he had any very high-mileage examples I would be interested in hearing if has put serious miles (100K+) on any of the MVs.

The shifter was stiff, and a very positive foot, from first to second. shift kicked an impulse through the clutch lever, was a little odd; never a bike do that before. was a bit touchy at low speeds, but after a few in traffic, I got the hang of it and it wasn’t a anymore.

Brakes are the same Brembo that all the high-end Ducatis and are similarly extremely effective.

bikes come with control and all that, although we come near testing features.

The quality and aesthetics are this is a fantastic bike. I better the high regard are held in by their owners.

It be a tough choice for me between and a Ducati StreetFighter S, which very much be a direct – similar price, power, and I still like the twin’s characteristics, yet the MV has an edge in both and handling, and is a better-looking bike. were very easy to intuitive, instantly fast and with good controls and

I’m afraid the MV joins the short


I then took a on the new smaller HyperMotard 796, my friend took an 848 out.

She a lot more familiar with the 848 of and enjoyed the little spin, but how much work it was to ride compared to the effortless speed of the MV.

I the little Hyper. The HyperMotard has been top of my short list for a and remains there. The 796 was surprisingly and fun, and would make a all-around bike for anyone who short.

I would still the big one, but if I was on a limited budget, I be perfectly happy with the I don’t know what the ingredient is, but that bike makes me smile to ride, nothing else ever

It was obvious that it wasn’t comparable to the MV in any way, yet I enjoyed it at least as much, which is the bottom line really is. impressive, especially for under That’s about what I for my Monster 17 years ago.

Thanks very much to Forza of Escondido for the opportunity to these bikes.
