2006 Mv-Agusta Brutale 910R

MV AGUSTA BRUTALE 910R

The Brutale 910R: Captivating style, a great temperament and engine technology par excellence. But also a fanatical eye to detail and sophisticated fittings. All these qualities have long been recognized in the both the 750 and 910 Brutale

Now just try to imagine these properties boosted by improved performance, better braking and the dynamic handling characteristics of a full race machine. This would be the 910R. It is a motorcycle for everyday use but, under the right circumstances, capable of rewarding its rider with the behavior and riding sensation that are more in line with full race machines. The MV Agusta Brutale 910R derives from the S version and keeps the same elegant lines that are so much loved by the general public. There are however several modifications that make it even more dynamic and aggressive. As far as appearances go, the R version features changes relating to the frame and mechanicals in comparison to the base model S.

.

It must be said that this has great style value making the machine identifiable by means of various elements like the red rocker box cover, the black forged aluminum wheels and the Brembo brakes with their distinctive radial calipers and enlarged discs.

.

THE DESIGN

.

The Brutale 910R is characterized by a color scheme that underscores the volume of the lines thanks to the use of dark polychrome shades and slashes of graphic red that copy the color of the rocker box cover.

.
The Brutale 910R is adorned with customized graphics that distinguish it from the 910S. The aesthetics that differentiate it from the S model are as follows:

.

• New "R" color scheme
• New 910R logo
• Tachometer with new numerical scale and Brutale logo.
• Rider and pillion passenger saddle in “Pieni Fiore” leather
• Red rocker box cover
• Anodized black fork uprights
• Titanium treated surface applied to: Lower steering flange, Fork, Frame plates and Handlebar counterweights.

.

THE EQUIPTMENT
.

The Brutale 910R is fitted with state-of-the-art technical systems worthy of a competition machine. This is clearly seen in the braking and suspension systems that differ from the 910S as follows:

.

• Brembo Monoblock P4/34 radial brake calipers.
• AluminumØ320 mm Brembo discs
• Radial caliper strut
• Marzocchi USD Ø50 mm R.A.C. forks (Road Advanced Component.)
• Brembo forged aluminum wheels with Y spokes.
• Racing exhaust with Eprom specialized
• New inlet ducts hand polished

.

SUSPENSION

.

The Brutale 910R marks the debut of Marzocchi USD Ø50 mm R.A.C. (Road Advanced Component.) forks fitted to a production bike. These forks are the most prestigious item made by the Bolognese factory. They feature a multi-adjustable unit (13 compression settings and 32 for rebound) fitted with carbon nitride treated uprights designed for improved slide characteristics. The looks of the 910R also differ in the Anodized stays that add to the individuality of this specific model. Rear suspension is looked after by a Sachs single shock absorber with rebound-compression damping and spring preload adjustment depending on a simple setting that distinguishes between the absorption of a high or low speed shock.

.

THE BRAKES

.

The MV Agusta Brutale 910R heralds the introduction of a Brembo brake system featuring radial P4/34 calipers that are customized with the Brutale logo. This monoblock braking system, derived from competition Superbike and Moto GP machinery, has a strut to provide increased rigidity mounted on radial adaptors made exclusively for MV Agusta. The enlarged Ø 320mm discs with steel braking area and aluminum flange are also new.

The rear brake remains an unchanged four-piston (opposed) caliper unit acting on a 210 mm disc. The Nissin-designed front brake and clutch levers are exclusive to MV Agusta and can be micro-metrically adjusted. The Brembo forged aluminum wheels with Y spokes measure 3.50” x 17” at the front and 6.00” x 17” at the rear. Tires are 120/70 ZR 17 up front with 190/55/17 at the rear.

.
THE ENGINE

.

The Brutale 910R is equipped with the most powerful engine of the Brutale range. Derived from the 910S EV it differs by the following:

.

• New Inlet Ducts Which Are Hand-Polished
• Full Racing Exhaust System
• Specialized EPROM

.

The engine follows the same pattern as the 750EV but also features up-dated characteristics from the 998 cc unit that powers the F4-1000. Technically the four-cylinder in-line engine owes its increased capacity to an increase in both bore and stroke - from 73.8 mm to 76mm and from 43.8 mm to 50.1 mm respectively. The increase in capacity did not make the new engine any bigger externally than the 750 and thus, the same frame could be used.

.

Sharing some engine components developed for the F4 1000 not only meant an evolution in mechanical terms, but also a considerable saving in weight (2637 grams) especially in relation to reciprocating mass.

That’s not a 910R on that picture. The 910R has very different forks and monoblock Brembo front brakes, not those stock Nissins. There’s not 910R on those colours, either.
Oh, and the wheels, of course. The 910R has the black 10-spoke-Y forged aluminium Brembo wheels, not the Star Marchesinis.
