At last, a wet weight published for both the B675 and B800 ... 416.67 lbs.
Where the Street Triple is a relaxed, naked bike that is also tremendous fun to go ballistic on, the Brutale is far more aggressive. It’s sportier than the Street Triple and considerably faster, making it not a hell of a lot slower than the Speed Triple and, I reckon probably faster on a track than the 1050 due to its light weight.
The MV is not a bike for less experienced riders, as the power is pretty ferocious when unleashed and this, combined with the light weight, can make it a bit of a handful on bumpy roads. Although nowhere near as user-friendly or charming as the Triumph, the Brutale 800 is certainly the best Brutale I’ve ridden and a brilliant bike in its own right."
.......has a new owner :(
