brutale tank made out of carbon?greenspun.com : LUSENET : MV Agusta F4 : One Thread
my dealer told me today that the tank and the seat of the brutale oro are not made of carbon. Is that right at this price? thanks in advance.

I dont think it is, as the tank would have to have passed the homoligation tests, and they would have more than like have used a steel tank for that. I'm not sure on the seat unit to be honest, I think you are mainly paying for the magnesium parts (frame plates, wheels, swingarm, triple clamps) and the other carbon parts as well.

The owners manual for my brutale s indicates the tank on both the oro and the s are thermoplastic.. I found this out when I went to try to fit a magnetic tank bag to my bike...It didn't stick.
