Well decided to shop for a new bike. Currently I have Suzuki SV 650S 2012 model that I love to bits so may end up having 2 bikes but unlikely. Originally I had my heart set on Ducati Panigale 899. Just loved its looks and thought I could live with a sports flared bike. However after a test ride I had to scratch that idea. I think I am too big of it as I could not tuck my knees in around the tank and it also got uncomfortably hot (in the winter!). But amazing sound from a stock exhaust and a very spirited ride. So I decided that I want an upright comfy yet very sporty and fun bike and shortlisted Tuono, S1000R and Brutale 1090. Test ridden them all. They are all great and if I was to summarize my findings - my head tells me to get S1000R, my heart tells me to get Tuono but that part of anatomy that some shallow men consider the most important... tells me to get Brutale 1090. I just came back from MV Agusta Riding Experience ‹ MV Agusta Australia Augusta riding day and rode 1090. It is just ridiculous. I rode both Touno and S1000R before and they were very spirited rides and very fast, but brutale felt like so much more fun even though it is the least equipped of them all. I also think it would be the most expensive to service. Would appreciate any input from Brutale owners.
