Kwacky's next new bike thread

Postby Kwacky » 19 Mar 2021, 09:33

I've swapped the F3 800 for a 2020 Brutale 800 RR SCS

It's got 300 miles on the clock.

I was looking at the Brutale when I bought the F3. I do like my naked bikes and these tick a lot of boxes. Long time fans of me will recall way back my forum signature was "Triples are the future, baby!" I do like a threesome.

It's got a gunshot QD exhaust on it and they're supplying and fitting an alarm and immobiliser. Obviously I've not ridden it, but I test rode a standard Brutale 800 a couple of years ago and the 800rr is the same 140bhp engine as the F3. With it being a 2020 model it's got the up/down quickshifter. The SCS means you don't have to use the clutch, at all, ever. Using a parking brake will take some getting used to.

The bike is currently in their London store, so they're bringing it up to Birmingham for its first service. I can either have it delivered or collect it. My insurance is up for renewal at the end of next week, so I've added the bike to the new policy rather than faff about amending the current policy.

I was hoping to share some photos but they've already pulled the adds.

The bike is silver/black, like this one. https://www.motorcyclenews.com/bike-rev ... 00rr/2020/

I don't know if you can make it out, but there's a foot lever forward of the rear brake lever. You press that to engage the parking brake. You press the rear brake lever to take the parking brake off.

Worth reading Michael Neeves review as well.

Good find with that tweet.

I know you're supposed to be excited about your new bike, but I'm REALLY excited for this one. That 798cc triple with updated electronics should be pretty special.

Some black bars would look good in place of the silver ones...

There's some technical stuff about the clutch, if you're into that sort of thing.

I just want it to work.

I assume it works in the same way as the paddle shifts on cars these days.

Nice.
I like that trellis frame.....they always make it look like someone put a bit of time & thought into building/designing a bike.

An Agusta dealer once told me that MV make a bike then put a price on it, rather than build a bike to a price.

It does show. When you look up close to an MV it's got some really nice touches, like the logo on loads of parts.
