MV Agusta unveils 1000cc Brutale, called the Brutale 1000RR.
Generates 206 bhp, will go to 300 kph.
5.0 inch TFT display for instrumentation.
8 step traction control, 6 axis IMU.
Will compete with the Ducati Streetfighter V4.
MV Agusta has taken the wraps off what is now their flagship naked product, the MV Agusta Brutale 1000RR. This is a 206 bhp four-cylinder motor that will take you all the way to 300 kph – if you can hang on.
The Brutale 1000RR is based on the Serie Oro, which was a limited edition super exotic naked from MV Agusta, and as such uses fewer exotic materials for various things in order to keep the cost down.
There’s still carbon fiber in places, yes, but the titanium bolts of the Serie Oro are now all-steel bolts. The wheels are made of forged aluminum instead of carbon fiber like the Serie Oro.
The features set is also quite impressive, as befits an MV. The all-LED headlamp has cornering lamps that are guided by the six-axis IMU. A 5-inch color TFT display is the instrument cluster, and one can select from various riding modes or customize things like the 8 level traction control via the display.
The four-cylinder engine in the Brutale 1000RR follows the V4 format and generates roughly 206 bhp, a smidgen less than the Serie Oro’s 210 bhp. There is a new crankshaft, new valve guides, and new camshafts.
The air intake is new as well, with its unequal length ducts that optimize fuel efficiency. The suspension is electronically adjustable, as is the steering damper. Brembo provides the brakes, with top-shelf components in the Style calipers.
The MV Agusta Brutale has priced at Rs 25 lakh globally. Considering the outgoing Brutale 1090 was priced at around Rs 20 lakh here, ex-showroom, we can safely consider the Brutale 1000RR to make a leap beyond that Rs 25 lakh mark in the Indian market. The Ducati Streetfighter V4 has been served notice already.
