PH2: MV Agusta Brutale 800

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.

    Looks lush!

    Where are the indicators on these?

    The fronts are on the radiator shrouds. The rear ones are still a mystery to me too...

    Nice, really liking the shape of the Brutale, should really add one next to my F4....

    What an excellent looking thing, I've always liked naked street bikes.

    Does anyone have any technical info about how the counter-rotating crankshaft works? Sounds interesting.
