Haven't seen too many MV Agustas on here. This one is mine.

I just got it yesterday. It's a new 2008 MV Agusta Brutale 910S. Yes, new. It was a leftover from the darker days of the financial crisis...not too many people buying motorcycles in 08-09 judging by the leftovers in the local shops. I picked it up yesterday for a SCREAMING deal...I've looked a classifieds and done searches all over the net, and it was less than any used MV Agusta that I saw, of any year. The dealership just wanted it out of their showroom. I was happy to take her home. It's definitely a she...she's the italian supermodel girlfriend that I never had.

Just picked this up on Friday. Actually found it here on ADV from OldPete. Awsome deal and
all there except for rear shocks. 1620 Miles, been disassembled since @1980
Came with both seats original tool kit and some really cool shirts.
Cool guy, good to meet him.

Thanks! I like both, but for very different reasons.

well thanks, being a noob to the Guzzi world I did not realize they aren't stock, searched around the net to see if I could find any others with gold rims, nope, all black. I bought the bike just recently with only 2400 km. Amazes me the the PO went through all the trouble adding all the little carbon fiber parts, changing or painting the rims, higher clipons, relocated the footpegs then never rode it, crazy!

I looked at that bike almost a year ago.
At the time he was looking for too much $$$ and I was looking at too many question marks in those boxes.

If that motor indeed fires and works and everything is there - you probably got a sweet deal.
If not - well - it will be a fun project.

I chickened out and bought another Bevel in PHX.

When you get 'er done - holler at me. We'll get 'em together...

Well, thanks for passing on this one. The more I look the more I like it. I've owned 4 others (now gone) and this will be no problem. I'm very happy with the deal. I owe you a beer (for passing)

FWIW. The carbon bits prob came with the bike. The real treat is that Guzzi titanium exhaust that sold separately for around $1,500 US. Great bike!!!

True, pipes and a chip I believe (or was told) and they sound ohhhh so nice . I thought her Austrian stable mate with wings sounded good, but it doesn't come close in comparison
