The 2021 MV Agusta Brutale 1000 RR has been unveiled for the international markets, and the latest iteration of the motorcycle packs mechanical upgrades and new features. The styling, however, remains similar to the Euro4 model. While the Italian roadster motorcycle is not likely to reach the Indian market in the near future, here we bring you a detailed image gallery of the 2021 MV Agusta Brutale 1000 RR.
The 2021 MV Agusta Brutale 1000 RR looks similar to the 2020 model. Thus, the styling cues retain the muscular fuel tank, clip-on style handlebars, bar-end mirrors, split-style seat, tall-set exhaust canisters, and a single-sided swingarm.
The RR badge brings several carbon components such as air-box cover, dashboard harness cover, central panel for fuel tank, side panels for fuel tank, central and lateral cover for projector clutch and gearbox covers, and the external air intake to the motorcycle.
The 2021 MV Agusta Brutale 1000 RR will be available in two colours – Fire Red with Matte Metallic Dark Grey and Matte Metallic Aviation Grey with Matte Metallic Dark Grey and Fluorescent Yellow.
The feature list on the 2021 model includes full-LED lighting, a Bluetooth-enabled instrument cluster, and the MV EAS 3.0 bidirectional quickshifter.
The electronic rider aids, which now work with an IMU platform, include cornering ABS, rear wheel lift-up mitigation system, wheelie control, four riding modes, launch control, cruise control, and a switchable traction control system.
The Euro 5 compliant, 998cc, inline-four, liquid-cooled engine on the 2021 MV Agusta Brutale 1000 RR makes 205bhp of maximum power at 13,000rpm and 116.5Nm of peak torque at 11,000rpm. The maximum speed is rated at over 300kmph.
The updated motor also gets new sintered valve pipes, DLC coated tappets, new cam profiles, and a redesigned exhaust to the motorcycle. The claimed fuel economy for the 2021 model stands at 6.8-litre/100km or 14.70kmpl.
The suspension tasks are handled by Ohlins-sourced, electronically-adjustable hardware. The front uses Ohlins Nix EC upside-down front forks while the rear gets an Ohlins EC TTX rear mono-shock – both fully-adjustable. An electronically-adjustable Ohlins steering damper is part of the package too.
The braking duties are performed by twin 320mm discs with Brembo Stylema four-piston callipers at the front and a single rotor with Brembo two-piston calliper at the back.
