A salute to the United States and to the rich history of the MV Agusta brand, the 2019 Brutale 800 RR America wears an eye-catching red, white and blue livery and the same iconic graphics on the tank that appeared on the 1973 750 S.
Voted the most beautiful bike of the year for EICMA 2016, the Brutale 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 and adrenaline inducing.
RR stands for maximum power: with 140 hp at 13,100rpm and a maximum torque of 86 Nm at 10,100 rpm. A package specifically developed to retain the riding dynamics and sheer exhilaration of the models prior to the introduction of the new emission regulations. The result is a true technological leap with a refined engine cylinder head suppresses unnecessary noise and enhances the pure MV sound.
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. 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 minimize stresses and vibration.
The 2019 RR 800 takes Brutale styling to new extremes. New aero forms were introduced with respect for the classic style that defined the Brutale DNA typified by the unique front headlight profile and distinctive ‘organ pipe’ silencer which has increased both in profile and volume (+ 3 lt). Other distinctive elements include the split seat, retractable passenger grab handles, a graphic LED rear tail light and the compact LED indicators. The strongest feature is the futuristic signature light alloy structure of the subframe, which connects to the trapezoidal fuel tank, creating a visually front biased volume that accentuates the aggressive character of this naked whilst retaining a uniquely balanced compact proportion. Introduced specifically for the RR version, are new forged wheels with a specific contrasting surface treatment.
The upgrade of the Brutale 800 RR is also electronic. The throttle unit has been updated, up & down EAS 2.0 Quick Shift is standard complimented by a hydraulic clutch with integrated slipper system. The engine management is entrusted to MVICS system and includes an updated Full Ride by Wire System incorporating multi-map with eight level adjustable traction control. Finally the new dashboard is now equipped with an OBD function (On Board Diagnostics).
More power is managed by the introduction of a new steering damper, with eight levels of manual adjustment. The hydraulic Marzocchi upside down fork utilize lightweight gold anodized aluminum stanchions (comprising an external compression adjustment system, extension and spring preload) and an adjustable Sachs rear monoshock.
Braking is entirely Brembo, with a pair of 320mm floating front discs and four piston radial calipers up front, and a twin piston caliper on a 220 mm diameter disc at the rear.
To top it all, the Bosch ABS 9 Plus, ensures safety and performance on all road surfaces.
