    No thread for this yet?

    Based on Brutale 800, full range of advanced electronics, priced competitively with Hypermotard 796, coming second half of 2013.

    I think it looks HOTTER THAN HELL! :eek1

    So much drippy plastic.....looks like they dipped it in melted chocolate. Like a Pontiac Sunfire on two wheels. If this is their most off-road worthy model, judging by tire selection and handguards, why put so much plastic on it?

    Too bad really, becasue it obviously used the naked triple as it's basis, which is a much more handsome bike.

    Fuel tank size looks good!

    The fuelling and throttle delivery will make or break it.

    Love the Brutale. This, not so much. Looks like an insect.

    I love the look in pictures, but it's really hard to decide without seeing it in person.

    I do like it!

    Hopefully they will have it all sorted out before (if it ever) gets to these shores......

    I like it, although I would like to see some pictures with some light on it. Its an interesting take on the hypermotard theme. Looks like a fun around town, canyon carver - sort of along the lines of a speed triple, Duke 690, hypermotord...

    I could see one of these in my future.

    MVA's aren't that hard to find, especially since Ape's in SoCal. Provided they actually bring it into the US market in the first place.

    ...to my MV Agusta Dealer friend who had an F3 sold, cash in hand, and MV sent it to another dealer. His customer never got the bike he paid in full for.

    MV is a joke.

    All three happy owners out there can rejoice, the rest of us will suffer through beta testing a low volume Italian bike with little dealer support, parts supply, and warranty Hell.

    Pretty? Yes. Real? Barely.

    From what I hear, fuelling has pretty much broke the 675.
