PH2: MV AGUSTA BRUTALE 800

MV Agusta's Brutale gets a bit more brutal with a new 800cc version


Despite the 675 triple Brutale only just landing in the UK, MV Agusta has announced a brand new 800cc version of its naked bike.

Weighing just 167kg the Brutale 800 uses a longer stroked version of the counter-rotating triple engine from the F3. The 54.3mm stroke (up from 49.5mm) gives the 800 a claimed 125hp and 60lb ft of torque. As with the supersport bike the 800 comes with a comprehensive electronics package that includes eight-level traction control and four fuel modes.

The steel tubular/aluminium alloy frame is the same style as the 675 Brutale and the 800 also has a single-sided swingarm, four-piston radial Brembo brakes and fully adjustable suspension.

Prices are expect to be around the £10,000 mark with the colour choices red/silver, white/red, grey/white and blue/white.
