Brutale 800 RR

The revolutionary MV Agusta three-cylinder project has reached a new pinnacle of technical development and performance. It has done so with the Brutale 800 RR, completing the path taken by another Brutale, the 675, the first model in what would become a wide range of naked, super sport, touring and crossover bikes

The revolution, by MV Agusta, has a new name: Brutale 800 RR. Adrenaline and pure style. A sublime riding experience that has enchanted riders in search of that something more, beyond extreme acceleration. After conquering unanimous positive feedback and being voted the most beautiful bike of the year (www.infomotori.com) for EICMA 2016 (Milan, Rho Pero, 8 to 13 November) the most beautiful naked of all time returns to be the most powerful, and the most technological, whilst boasting the lowest emissions within it’s category. Thanks to the”RR” equipment, the quality of the Euro IV updates and implemented electronics the experience of the MV Agusta Brutale RR is even more intense, immediate, fluid and adrenaline inducing: 140 hp from launch, a full torque curve, complimented with the best suspension and control package. So, MV Agusta strengthens its technological leadership in the year Euro IV regulations are introduced, reinterpreting the same performance led strategy that make it an icon in motorcycling: the ‘bad’ Schiranna naked, benefits from a thrilling riding experience accompanied with an exceptional level of refinement: less vibration, noise reductions of 50% compared to the previous model, lower emissions, more power, and less demanding set-up. A dream constructed around acceleration and design.

RR stands for maximum power: with 140 hp at 13,100 revs / min and a maximum torque of 86 Nm at 10,100 rpm / min generated by the presence of two injectors per cylinder. A package specifically developed to retain the riding dynamics and sheer exhilaration of the models prior to the introduction of the new restrictive emission regulations. The result is astonishing; a true technological leap with a refined engine cylinder head developed for noise suppression to the benefit of augmenting ‘permitted’ sound by MV: namely those generated by the combustion. With the introduction of new components such as a harmonic damper, a new mechanical cam-chain tensioner, new camshafts, new valve guides, all completely redesigned and utilizing new materials to minimize stresses and vibrations. Noise reduction also extends to the side covers of the engine, which also act as engine protectors. An entirely new countershaft, starter motor, and primary gear drive, are aimed at improving the reliability. The designs of the transmission gears are also redesigned to achieve better meshing and therefore smoother transitions.

The main characteristics of the MV Agusta Brutale 800 RR are:

  • In-line 3-cylinder engine with counter-rotating crankshaft
  • MVICS (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System) technology
  • 8-level traction control
  • Composite steel trellis and aluminium plate frame for high torsional rigidity
  • Single-sided swingarm with adjustable rear monoshock
  • Upside-down adjustable 43 mm front fork
  • Racing-type radial front calipers
