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.
