It's feckin beautiful, and that triple is something I crave to test, but what's it supposed to be? Is it supposed to be motard-y?

I think it looks more streetfighter than motard. barely.

now for the important issue - do a test ride on the Yamaha FZ09 for a comparison.
The Yamaha is a LOT of fun to ride.

Moto forza in Escondido has them in stock. They are motardish. They are nice and have all the latest fueling updates including a heavier throttle spring. To be honest I have the Brutale 800 and the fueling is just fine.
As far as the Yamasaki, it is nice but it is no Brutale. The motor in the Yamasaki is good the rest needs improvement. The motor in the MV is also excellent and the rest of her too is great. Is the price difference worth it? It all depends on what you want from your bike. A sorted bike with little need for mods get the Brutale or other MV triple. For a bike that is cheap and you will want or need to mod to get the most from her, then get the Yamasaki.

Ive been working on the wife trying to get a tiny indication that i can sell the griso and get something new, on the list is a 899 panigale, ktm 1290 and the rivale, but the 12 litre tank on the rivale puts me off, its one of the reasons i got rid of my tuono v4 poor fuel range. the 899 is 24k nz dollars the rivale is 25k and the ktm is 28k. my wife had a double look at the rivale so its working.

Fun day at the track flogging the Little MV, bloody thing went well, but my mates gave me a lesson in why tyre warmers are the bees knees.369184369185 I think the rear shock is going to need revalving for the road, and possibly the track, it was hard on the tires.

With the poorly valved sach shock the tire struggled for grip getting out of the tight corners. Well the shock has been re-valved new oil and gas pressure, and oh boy what a transformation. The guy who fixed it is one smart cookie when it comes to suspension. The shock wasn't over damped, it was under damped, and blowing through the shim stack causing the shock to bottom out, and feeling like it was harsh. But now it just soaks up everything in the road. $250, best money I've ever spent on a bike.:):):)
