MV Agusta has taken the wraps off its all-new Brutale 800 and made public the first details. The new motorcycle is based on the Brutale 675 model, but features a stronger engine and some key modifications for improved performance.
The bike’s 12 valve three cylinder 798cc Inline Triple unit is based on the same engine that powers the F3 super sport. Compared to the 675 Brutale, the 800’s engine features a higher compression ratio at 13.3:1. The engine develops a maximum power of 125 hp at 11.600 rpm and 60 lb-ft torque at 8600 rpm. As far as electronics goes, the new Brutale 800 comes with a switchable engine mapping and eight-way switchable traction control.
The bike’s forks and shock are adjustable for rebound, compression and preload, while the stopping power is assured by Brembo radial brakes.
Another interesting fact is that the 800 and 675 share the same dry weight of 368 pounds (167 kg) with identical fuel loads at 4.39 gallons.
The bike is priced at 9900 Euros which is only 1000 Euro more than the entry-level Brutale 675 and 3000 Euro less than the stronger 1090 Brutale.
The new bike will go head to head with the likes of Triumph 675 Speed Triple, Kawasaki Z800 and Ducati 800 Monster.
