2010 MV Agusta Brutale 990R and 1090RR

Posted on by 1

Ahead of Brutale’s 10-year anniversary, MV Agusta introduces the new 990R and 1090RR models, which are claimed to be 85 percent new. Although the bikes don’t look different at all compared to the previous generation, they actually feature the same redesigned headlight, instrument cluster and instrumentation, handlebar, rear view mirrors, key block as well as bodywork and technical fittings.

But things go “from bad to worse” when trying to spot performance gains and weight losses because there are no such achievements on the new MV Agusta Brutale motorcycles. Despite the fact that the 990R model’s engine has grown from 982.3cc to 998cc, it lost 3bhp, won 2lb/ft of torque and needs to move around with 5kg more. The 1090RR lost 9.8bhp and 1 lb/ft of torque and it is also 5kg heavier than before. Still, both models meet Euro 4 emissions regulations, which is most likely what generated the fairly ugly turn.

We hope that MV Agusta models aren’t borrowing from Harley-Davidson’s DNA now that the Italian company was bought by the American one, but considering the $3k higher price, we’re in for a dilemma. Press release and specifications follow after the jump.
