I tend to be quite funny (read peculiar) when it comes to motorcycles, I like many but very few get me excited, to the point where I would do anything to spend a weekend on the open road with it. Whatever your bent when it comes to two wheeled machines, you will not be disappointed with the MV Agusta Brutale.
We of course cover the Agusta F4 back in 2012, that was because the F4 is always a thing of beauty. MV never cease to make me excited, their designs are the most consistently beautiful irrespective of the machine they are producing. The Brutale is not just another example of that, it is an example to everyone out there how to design a naked machine and make it look drop-dead stunning.
It is undeniably beautiful. From the front lamp to the tail section, this machine has refinement at every twist and curve, not to mention the enclosed exhaust system, in typical MV Agusta fashion, goes above and beyond style and performance.
- 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
Available in colors:
- Black Matt Metalic / Matt Silver
- Pearl Ice White / Matt Metallic Graphite
- Red / Matt Silver
For myself the only thing this machine lacks, although lacks is probably the wrong word, is the ability to customise the paint accents, I would find myself wanting to take away the pillion capacity (including the pegs) and changing the accent to my own personal colour of choice. Currently this isn’t an option, so it would require another £3,000.00 expense after the purchase to make it my own personal machine. That said, could I live with it look like other peoples? Absolutely!! This machine makes me smile every time I look at it, so when I have the spare £13,000.00 to part with, I would definitely be considering parting with it for this.
