View Full Version : Brutale 910S comfort
10-29-2008, 05:50 PM
Has anybody here sat on the Brutale 910s? I'm 6' 215 lbs and although its a good looking bike I'm thinking the ergos are for little Italian guys. With the economic downturn several have popped up for sale and I was wondering about the fit for a chubby rider. I've seen the 750 and it appeared to be very small and a trip to a dealer for me just to sit on one is 3 hours away. I'm very comfortable on my '03 Tuono but it may be time to swap out if it fits.

Yeah, I've sat on one...
It didn't seem to bother me and I'm 6'2" 225. However, most write-ups have slammed the Brutale as having the perfect ergos for a 5'2" tall person...
I'd really see if you could ride one first, just to be on the safe side...
I've had a 910s for over year and about 6000 miles, incredible deals on these used right now btw. In comparison to my tuono it IS a tiny bike, that said I'm 6'2" about 170 pounds. Not nearly as roomy as my tuono, because of the comparative cramped position of the brute, I wouldn't personally have it as my only bike, but it is a blast to ride and wonderfully handling in the mountains. It's got some quirks but still a great bike and very well built.

I have one and have done many multiple hundred days with no problem. I'm 6' and have Gilles rearsets which give enough legroom to make it comfortable for all day riding.
I haven't ridden a Tuono for a long distance but the Brutale is much more comfortable than my RSVR for all day riding.
