2014 MV Agusta Brutale 800

Posted on by  

If you are looking for a fast, good looking and agile naked, then you should take a closer look at the MV Agusta Brutale 800, as it has all it needs to make you fall in love with it from the first sight.

At its heart lies a 798 cc three cylinder, 4 stroke, 12 valve timing system D.O.H.C engine with a total displacement of 798 Cm3 (48.68 Cu. In.). It delivers a maximum output of 92 KW (125 Hp) at 11600 rpm and 81 Nm (8.25 Kgm) of torque at 8600 rpm. All this power is sent to the rear wheels by means of a cassette style, six speed, constant mesh transmission with wet, multi-disc clutch.

The motorcycle is also equipped with an advanced electronics package which includes the first Full Ride by Wire system with multi-map and integrated traction control.

MV Agusta Brutale 800

Brutale 800, captivating power.

The new 800 engine offers increased power, torque and riding dynamics for the naked MV Agusta. The new adjustable suspension and the new advanced electronics package makes the Brutale 800 leader in its segment. Graphics and special colours accentuate the unmistakably lines of MV Agusta.

Brutale three-cylinder means handling, extreme agility, and absolute ease of use. Now with the new engine power and torque comparable to a 1.000cc, and with a weight of only 167 kg, the 800 Brutale offers an unique power to weight ratio. Aside from the new engine, the Brutale 800 offers a new adjustable suspension allowing the riders complete personalisation.

A dependable advanced electronics package unique within this category: MVICS (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System), the integrated management system of the vehicle, includes the first Full Ride by Wire with multi-map and integrated traction control. Offering optimised delivery at all engine speeds, maximum engine efficiency in terms of fuel consumption, and of course the opportunity to select different engine characteristics, choosing from the four available maps: three pre-sets, one personalised. Traction control also ensures safety and performance on any road or track surface, allowing the driver to concentrate entirely on riding. The three-cylinder engine, which debuted on the supersport F3 675, forms the basis for the technological progress in its class, thanks to exclusive technical solutions such as the counter-rotating crankshaft, used in MotoGP, but never before seen on a production bike. The frame performance is guaranteed, thanks to MV Agusta’ s unique mixed structure: the front section of steel tube trellis combined with two light aluminium alloy plates, and a sculpted single-arm rear suspension.

Brutale 800 joins Brutale 675 with its increased performance, dynamics and untouchable MV Agusta style. A motorcycle capable of satisfying the most demanding of motorcycle enthusiasts.

MV Agusta Brutale 800 is distinctive at first glance. A perfect combination of aesthetics, functionality, design and ergonomics. Form and substance. Unique in its kind, this three-cylinder is aligned with the standards of excellence of the Brutale 675, yet remains distinctive with new graphics and further detail enhancements.

The overall compactness is visually impressive, with the mechanical components dominating; the three-cylinder engine is almost completely exposed to view, embraced by the distinctive frame and compact exhaust system. The silencer is modelled in such a way as to ensure maximum capacity and efficiency while remaining perfectly integrated.

The tailpiece is essential yet elegant. Even the headlight characterises the design, by combining the original elements and stylistic features of the Brutale range. The distinctive three element exhaust pipe remains another key visual component of MV Agusta Brutale.

Brutale 675 boasts the most advanced electronic management within its category. In its succession the Brutale 800 also excels by applying advanced race technology to mass production. The system MVICS (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System) ensures the integrated control of the vehicle and the engine: This allows combining management of the three cylinders with the traction control, to achieve high performance with safety. Technological innovation is epitomised by the use of Full Ride By Wire.

The electronic control of the throttle body, which together with the mapping for injection, and ignition optimises the air-fuel mixture at all engine speeds of delivery, maximising available power and torque as a function on request from the rider.

Compared to the traditional mechanical throttle, the Full Ride By Wire allows you to untie completely the rotation of the accelerator and throttle openings, leaving the task to electronics to achieve the optimum solution offering improved efficiency and a response exceeding the expectations of the rider.

Brutale 800 system uses a multimap, with three preset modes and one fully customisable so you can choose the most appropriate delivery to meet specific conditions. The integration of MVICS includes traction control on eight levels, adjustable in seconds and visible on the digital dashboard intervening throttle, ignition advance and injection.

Handling, traction, ease of use and performance: The objectives of the project were achieved by focusing on the chassis with a mixed structure. An unmistakable trademark of MV Agusta, consisting of the front section steel tube trellis and two aluminium alloy plates, fulcrum point for the long singlesided swingarm, designed to ensure the most efficient transmission of power to the asphalt.

Improved performance through increased levels of control and variability: The MV Agusta Brutale 800 is fitted with an upside down fork and shock absorber with hydraulic response customisable.

The upside down fork 43 mm in diameter, characterised by the excellent fluidity, with an excursion of 125 mm and is adjustable in compression, rebound and spring preload.

The rear shock absorber provides 119 mm stroke, adjustable in compression, rebound and spring preload. Brutale 800, therefore, adds to the versatility of the Brutale 675 with increased suspension regulation that further enhance riding dynamics.
