The new bike is without a doubt Brutale, but at the same time this is a new interpretation of the most admired naked in the world. The 4 cylinder 16 radial valve MV Agusta engine has reached a new level of evolution and technology. The 921cc, a new engine displacement for Brutale, finds the perfect balance between power and drivability. The new displacement of the legendary 4 cylinder is obtained with a new bore and stroke ratio with a focus on optimizing the power curve of the Brutale to be even more manageable while at the same time offering the class leading power. The new four cylinder MV Agusta matches 129 horsepower with a broad torque curve, incredible levels of power have never been this easy to control. The Brutale shares its chassis configuration and geometry with the 990R and 1090RR as well as most of the chassis components. The frame is a mixture of a steel trellis structure and lateral aluminum plates that has become the trademark of MV Agusta since the first application on the F4, a frame structure that has been continually copied but never equaled by other manufacturers.
