The MV Agusta Brutale 1090RR is an extreme motorcycle built using racing components. The bike is the sportiest model in the Brutale family and is powered by a four cylinder, 4 stroke, 16 valve, D.O.H.C, engine with a total displacement of 1078 cc.
The 2013 model is built on the same frame as the 990R, therefore you get a new chromium molybdenum steel TIG welded trellis frame. Compared to the previous model, the extension of the rear swingarm has been entirely redesigned and is now 2.2 lb lighter, improving the ride, increasing the torsional rigidity and keeping the weight to a low level.
As far as ride quality goes, the bike is fitted with a new front fork that has a more rigid setting, while the rear shock absorber has a double compression adjustment for high and low speeds, and a separate expansion reservoir. The stopping power is assured by 320 mm Brembo disks, with aluminum monoblock radial racing brake calipers, with 34 mm pistons.

The MV Agusta F4-RR was designed for those who live with the passion of speed in their vanes and has all it needs to be considered one of the best bikes in its class. The bike was created using the most exotic materials, ultra-sophisticated suspension and the new 1000cc short-stroke engine. All these elements make the new MV Agusta F4-RR one of the most advanced and powerful superbikes in the world.
The engine is a new 4-cylinder short stroke unit with radial valve. Compared to the previous unit, the new one was completely redesigned, featuring new thermodynamics, a new crankshaft and new bore and stroke dimensions. Thanks to the new engine the bike develops a maximum speed of 297.6 kmph.
To bring the bike to halt, MV Agusta equipped it with a high performance braking system which uses Brembo monobloc calipers paired with Brembo radial master cylinders.

The MV Agusta Brutale family has a new member which is powered by a fresh 920 engine. Each member of the Brutale family was received with enthusiasm by the riders as all of them offer top notch build quality, reliability and performance.
The new engine is a technologically advanced 4 cylinder unit with radial intake and exhaust valves coupled with the same advanced engine control unit as the 1090RR. The new displacement of the 4 cylinder engine is obtained with a new bore and stroke ratio with a focus on optimizing the power curve. The new four cylinder engine delivers a maximum output of 129 horsepower and a broad torque curve.
The BRUTALE 920 shares its chassis configuration and geometry with the 990R and 1090RR as well as most of the chassis components. The frame is a mixture of a steel trellis structure and lateral aluminum, while the chassis dimensions are the same as on the other Brutale models.
