New, affordable MV Agusta Brutale 1000 RS revealed

- RS variant gets manually-adjustable suspension setup

- Available in two colours

- Also feature more upright ergonomics than the RR model

MV Agusta has unveiled a relatively lower-spec variant of its litre-class naked roadster motorcycle, Brutale 1000. Christened as the MV Agusta Brutale 1000 RS, this new variant of the motorcycle features manually-adjustable Marzocchi front forks and a Sachs rear mono-shock to handle the suspension tasks. In comparison, the more premium RR model uses Ohlins-sourced semi-active suspension.

Apart from giving it a manually-adjustable suspension, MV Agusta has also revised the ergonomics on the RS model. This new variant of the Brutale 1000 series gets a slightly tall-set handlebar than the RR version for an upright riding position. MV Agusta has also revised the rear-view mirrors for a better view. The colour choices include two options – Ago Red and Magnum Silver.

Right Front Three Quarter

The RS model retains all other features and specifications from the RR model. Thus, it continues to use full-LED lighting, a muscular design, split-style saddle, a single-sided swingarm, and a tall-set exhaust setup.

The mechanical specifications retain the Euro5-compliant, 998cc, inline-four, liquid-cooled engine that produces 205bhp of power at 13,000rpm and 116.5Nm of peak torque at 11,000rpm. The top-speed of the motorcycle is rated at over 300kmph. The six-speed gearbox benefits from the MV EAS 3.0 bidirectional quickshifter.

Right Rear Three Quarter

The braking setup on the motorcycle includes 320mm dual discs with Brembo Stylema four-piston callipers at the front and a 220mm single rotor with two-piston calliper at the back. Other features include Bluetooth-enabled 5.5-inch TFT display, launch control, wheelie control, traction control, four maps, Ohlins EC with electronic manual and automatic adjustment modes, cornering ABS, and rear wheel lift-up mitigation.

The new MV Agusta Brutale 1000 RS model is available from 25,500 euro onwards as against 32,300 euro for the RR variant.
