Character and a wicked exhaust note
Build quality, price

The MV is a hard bike to actually justify owning. It costs a lot of money, lacks power compared to the competition and doesn’t really do anything better than them. But who cares? It looks bloody brilliant!

The Brutale is a bike that really pulls at your heartstrings. The 750cc engine isn’t the most powerful, and needs to be revved, but when you do it sounds like nothing else. Add to that the excellent handling, simply stunning looks and gloss over the slightly dodgy build quality and the Brutale is a very special bike.

Better then the competition? No, not really. The TnT is a better bike, and cheaper, but the MV just has something about it.
