Seems to me that the 800 is MV's version of an "R" with a better suspension than the B675 but for any company, let alone one that is already on the rocks, to offer the same model with two engine choices so close in size and output just doesn't make any sense to me.

Ducati is confusing enough with the M696/795/796/1100/1100EVO and M1100 "Diesel"....... now that's one ugly Duc .....



Drives dealers nuts and confuses the buyer.......

Fewer/better makes more sense to me so I hope not.

The Brutale 800 is a beauty (IMO)

Agreed. Ironic though, as this word stems from Brut, which is latin for "Ugly".

yea i like it too. not sure about the headlight but it's a nice compromise between the Duc. Streetfighter with it's huge underbelly, and the sleek styling of our Streets IMO.

I remember when I first saw the " Diesel " Duc . I seriously thought at first it was a diesel powered v twin . I was astatic. Then I saw it was only a fashion piece .. Total turn off. I like the Brutale . More than the Monsters surprisingly .
