    Beautiful bike! I love MV Augusta, definitely on my wish list. Their styling is so radical. If you think Moto Guzzis are kind of rare, have a look around for one of these.

    If you get a chance to take a Brutale 1090 RR for a ride, go for it. You won't want to give it back. I got my chance recently & it remains the most complete & satisfying new bike I've ever ridden. Wouldn't change a thing.
    Heresy from a Guzzi dude, I know...

    I ran across one of these in Stratford on Avon a few weeks back. Maybe the sexiest moto I have ever laid eyes on!

    What "wasn't" shrunk, was the fuel consumption. Averaged from 11-13 litres per 100 Kms!!!
    Dunno, but I reckon that's around 19-23 (US) mpg....
    Nearly sent me broke!! My Guzzi gets @ 5L/100Kms and my Impreza @ 10L/100Kms.

    Sooo worth it though. A ton of fun & I gave it heaps too! Immensely chuckable & would lift the front wheel passing through 130Kmh without breaking a sweat.

    But I'd never own a Dragster. Not the most reliable jigger on the road. Bike sat in our garage for weeks at a time getting warranty issues addressed & would not start randomly, meaning another rescue on the back of a ute.

    It's gone back to its owner. Now I could say something like "it was like having an affair with a beautiful woman...."
    but that wouldn't be my style..
