MV Agusta has unveiled the Brutale 1000 RR, the production version of the stunning Brutale 1000 Serie Oro. The bike is expected to arrive in India once the manufacturer finds a new partner in the country. So before the Brutale 1000 RR arrives, here is a detailed image gallery of the motorcycle for you to ogle at.
The Brutale 1000 RR as aforementioned is a stripped-down version of the limited-edition Brutale 1000 Serie Oro. While the production version is strikingly similar in terms of design, it gets a few changes to set it apart.
For example, a set of lightweight forged aluminum wheels have replaced the carbon fiber units on the Serie Oro, the golden highlights and the matte metallic red has also made way for a glossy version. Furthermore, MV Agusta is also offering the Brutale 1000 RR in a grey and neon yellow paint scheme.
The 998cc, inline-four cylinder engine has also been revised to produce 208bhp and 118Nm; slightly lesser than the 212bhp and 120Nm on the limited-edition model. However, the top-speed of 299kmph remains the same.
Nevertheless, the Brutale 1000 RR carries forward the same premium suspension and braking hardware. It uses hydraulic Öhlins Nix EC inverted forks up front and an adjustable Öhlins EC TTX mono-shock at the rear. Meanwhile stopping power comes from twin 320mm discs with Brembo Stylema four-piston calipers at the front and a 220mm disc with a Brembo two-piston caliper for the rear.
The electronic rider aids include four ride modes, six-axis IMU, front wheel-lift control, launch control, cornering lights, and a quick-shifter as standard. It also comes equipped with a five-inch TFT screen that can be connected to a smartphone via Bluetooth using the MV Ride App.
Interestingly, despite stripping off most of the carbon-fibre from the Serie Oro, MV Agusta has managed to keep the weight of the production Brutale 1000 RR the same at 185kg.
The MV Agusta Brutale 1000 RR has been priced at GBP 26,380 (approx. Rs 25 lakh) and will be available in international markets soon to compete against the KTM Superduke 1290 R, Kawasaki Z H2, and the Ducati Streetfighter V4.
