    Woohoo shocked it wasn't the 790 but that's a fine looking thing.

    Tell us more. In line4? Brakes? Sachs shock? Forks? Electronics?

    Yeah I think itís stunning. The poor 790 didnít stand a chance after I saw the Brutale.

    They're great bikes, very light and fast.
    The Brutale and the Dragster are essentially the same bike but for me the Dragster rides a bit more like a sportsbike because it's been thrown on it's nose with clip-ons and the Brutale rides more like a Monster - so it's probably perfect for you coming from the Monster.

    I expect it will feel very quick to spin up and will turn very quickly compared to the Monster.

    I think they're pretty bulletproof, just check the gearbox feels ok.

    I have to collect the RC from the shop on Monday after having some warranty work done on it, it's going to feel like I'm on a warp-drive missile after being on the Rudge for three weeks.
