Milan Motor Show 2012: MV Agusta Brutale 800
Milan Motor Show 2012: MV Agusta Brutale 800

Along with the MV Agusta Rivale 800, it was also presented at the Milan Motor Show the new MV Agusta Brutale 800. A naked that aims at the popular "medium" displacement (we must see what we consider average in 2012 …) take a pinch of the cake that the Japanese share. Personally, the bet seems to me the best move that the Italians could have made, reaching those to whom the 675cc seemed a small thing …

MV Agusta Brutale 800, more and better

The MV Agusta Brutale 800 is basically the 800cc version of the little one in the family. This new three-cylinder engine delivers 125cv at 11,300rpm, while the 675cc stays at 108 at 12,500rpm. The difference is also notable in terms of the torque achieved, 81Nm at 8600 turns by 65Nm at 12,000 of the base engine. These new virtues have made it necessary.

Thus, we see a 43mm diameter front fork as adjustable as the rear shock. Also receives the electronic package (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System), that is, Ride by wire, traction control with eight steps, adjustment maps etc … what the motorcycles of the Italian catalog are receiving as, say, "minimum services". The problem for your competitors is that the minimal services in MV mean Dry weight 167kg.

We will not find great changes in this regard, and I am grateful. The lines that have marked the Brutale in recent years are a hallmark of incomparable and unique identity. Its characteristic headlight and the triple exhaust outlet cut out following the figure of the rear rubber are details from which to take heart.

It will go on sale in four colors:

  • Metallic ruby red / Silver
  • White / Red Jamb
  • Matte Metallic Gray / Pearl White
  • White / Pearl Blue "Italia"

The first three will be available at a base price of 9,990 euros, going up to 10,390 if we want it with EAS while the Italian version goes to 10,990, being available only with EAS. The prices, as you mentioned, are subscribed to the taxes that each country wants to impose.
