    800 reliability

    Hi guys! I have fallen in love with the new Brutale dragster RR 800 and I would like to have a bit more info about the reliability in general for MV especially the motor and what is available in the performance section. I currently ride a 2013 RSV4R and it will most likely end up as track duty only so I need to find a new street bike and the dragster RR really got my attention. The only problem would be that the dealer is 1.5 hours away from me just like my April dealer is so looking to not have to visit him too often lol

    800 reliability

    My dealer is 1.5 hours away as well bro. I have the RSV4 as well.

    That's the price we pay for having nice bikes... So, don't worry about the distance to the dealership. I believe it is worth it to get the brutale. It looks sick and performs awesome.

    Otherwise, just get a gixxer and have fun riding a heavy piece of Japanese metal

    my friend just bought a f3 2013, we did a lot of research, 1 fueling problems a thing of the past,2 now they have a real slipper clutch (another old bad point)3 they appear to be bulletproof cant find any real engine failure problems, but he dropped it last weekend, good news he's o.k., bad news is he broke off the rearset mounting points on left frame spar, good news its replaceable so he doesn't need a frame, bad news a new spar will take till nov. to get here! but found used one on eu ebay.
    Nothing in this size feels as light and it turns like a 300! Go for it

    My closest Guzzi/MV dealer is 100 miles away.
    That's life.
    I have the ONLY Griso in my metropolitan area. And I like it that way!!
    It's only natural that I add a Rivale this summer.

    Thanks for all the good answers, my fear was having to trailer it every once in a while if there was problems that would keep me from riding it to the dealer. I just need to decide if I drop the $$$ on it and keep my RSV4 for track duty

    When you say ''track duty'', do you mean track day's or road racing? It would be nice to see an other RSV4 in the CSBK this season. The more the merrier!

    Still too many problems with their new releases if you read over at the mvforum. I'd still stay clear, which is a shame.

    I have the turismo 800 with 10k miles on it my mate owns a mv dealership here in uk I've had no problems with mine and have done a few long distance trips on it . Mv are having money problems and when I was at the factory a few weeks ago the production line was closed . And my mate has not had a new delivery for weeks but can still get parts no problem!

    I had a brutale 800 and I had no problems with mine. I put over 9000 miles on it before I sold it. I had the cams out to due a valve adjustment. It is a very well put together machine. Easy to work on and very well thought out. I would not worry about reliability. They are solid.
