DESIGN. INSPIRED: The Brutale’s history has deep roots in the creative genius of Massimo Tamburini, the man who revolutionized the idea of sport bikes. Today, the vision that inspired that project is embodied in a Brutale that maintains all its extraordinary beauty intact, enriched with valuable and exclusive technical content.
HIGH PROFILE: The Brutale RS version offers the same unrivalled dynamic properties of the RR with a steel-tube lattice frame with side plates, an extraordinary straight four engine and an elegant rear swing arm. On the RS, the quest for improved comfort resulted in a slightly raised position of the semi-handlebars.
COMFORTABLE RIDE: The suspension system on the Brutale 1000 RS is also partially unprecedented. In addition to the renowned electronically controlled Öhlins steering damper, there is now also a Marzocchi fork and a Sachs monoshock. Both units are fully adjustable in terms of elastic and hydraulic parameters to provide comfort, performance and riding dynamics. And the saddle with high density foam further contributes to comfort. For a carefree ride in the saddle.
PURE MV AGUSTA SOUND: Technology and power. The in-line, four-cylinder MV Agusta engine, one of a kind anywhere in the world thanks to the radial valve arrangement, finds a new version thanks in part to the countershaft that reduces high-frequency secondary vibrations, all to the benefit of reliability and comfort. Friction has been reduced thanks to new gears. The transmission has been strengthened and made even more accurate and efficient.
SAFE, ALWAYS: Our aspiration towards high performance also influenced the electronics. The inertial platform enabled us to further refine the responsiveness of the traction and front-lift control. The Brutale 1000 RS unites safety and performance in perfect harmony, allowing you to enjoy your riding experience in a variety of conditions, whether on the racetrack or on the road. And the throttle with counter rotation makes engine management easier, as well as making cruise control deactivation smoother.
ALWAYS CONNECTED: One of the qualifying points of the Brutale 1000 RS is the rider interface, thanks to the 5.5” TFT panel, the intuitive electrical blocks, and the MV Ride App. The app allows you to adjust numerous electronic parameters according to usage conditions and rider preferences. Not to mention the navigation features and the ability to save your journeys, which can then be shared on social media.
SAFETY: The state-of-the-art equipment of this model is rounded off by Continental ABS with cornering, vital for ensuring anti-locking even on the turns. The braking system confirms its number-one status in terms of power and ease of handling. It can count on 320 mm diameter discs, Brembo Stylema calipers and a radial master cylinder at the handlebar control.
