The top of the range MV Agusta Brutale 1078 RR was starting to show its age so the company decided to upgrade it.
The new 2013 model features a boost of power, a new engine and a series of other technical modifications made to improve performances. Transition from the 910R to the 1078RR involved the introduction of some new components that have given the Brutale RR 15 more HP and 2 kilos more of torque. The updates included new decals and color schemes, fresh instrument panel graphics, revised suspension calibration, a stronger 1078 cc engine, a Slipper clutch, Resized catalysers and Brembo monoblock brakes.
The bike retains the same chrome-molybdenum trellis frame as the previous model. The frame is perfectly capable to handle the reconfigured engine power output as it was initially designed to resist to huge torsion and flexing parameters. Due to the power increase and the stronger brakes, the forks have been also modified.

The MV Agusta Brutale was Italy’s best naked motorcycle so far, but it now has to make room for an improved version of itself, the Tamborini Corse T1. The custom bike wears the Massimo Tamburini fingerprint as his son Andrea is the man behind this project. That being mentioned, we can already start thinking at an infinite number of features making this motorcycle exquisite, but apart from the obvious carbon fiber and aluminum parts, there haven’t yet been mentioned the upgrades that make the Italian bike so great.
Bikers can either buy the custom Tamborini Corse T1 (the price hasn’t yet been mentioned) as a ready-to-ride motorcycle or transform the Brutale and F4 from MV Agusta as well as the Ducati 1198 superbike and naked Monster into what they see in the pictures using restyling kits and hop-up parts offered by Tamborini Corse.

Apart from the video presenting the new Brutale engine, MV Agusta also had the kindness to release a second technical video, now about the chassis of the 990R and 1090RR bikes. Watch it to see the main features that make the two Brutale models ideal both for track and public road use.
We’ve already covered the 2010 MV Agusta Brutale 990R and 1090RR, but can’t pass over this barely released technical video showing the most important details of the four-cylinder, four-stroke, 16-valve engine that achieved MV’s main goal for the 2010 Brutales – to meet Euro 4 regulations even if it meant sacrificing some of the previous generation’s horsepower and torque.
