MV Agusta doubles-down on the "Special" with the RVS#1

A PR stunt post their financial fracas to build customer relations

Some time back, MV Agusta created a special division called the Reparto Veicoli Speciali, or Special Vehicles Department, and handed them the task of creating the best MV Agusta machines that beam in terms of quality, research, performance, and emotions. This division was joined by the San Marino Research Center Castiglioni (born initially as CRC, Cagiva Research Center) to work on the brand’s Brutale Dragster 800 RR and come out with an evil looking motorcycle that will scare the daylights out of anything on the road.

Enter the RVS#1. Now, MV folks have released a ‘corporate video’ of this machine being built to rekindle their faith in customers who might have otherwise lost touch with the brand’s etiquettes amongst the recent financial scandals that put MV in troubled waters.

Plan of a brand new 1200cc four-pot comes after the Italian gets safe sailing waters

The rule of three, or “omne trium perfectum” as it was first written in Latin, debates that everything that comes in threes’ is perfect.

An exotic Italian motorcycle that reached a new pinnacle of technical development and performance with that biblical three-cylinder power mill.

Now, the Italian marquee is now concentrating on working on new machines for 2018 including a new line of Brutales’. It will run on a 1200cc, four-cylinder engine similar in architecture to the 998cc on the mighty F4 superbike.

2016 - 2017 MV Agusta Brutale 800 / Brutale 800 RR

2016 - 2017 MV Agusta Brutale 800 / Brutale 800 RR

Do You Have The Skills to Grab a Tiger By The Tail?

MV Agusta introduced the world to its Brutale family back in 2003, and we’ve been smitten ever since. Racy good looks and Italian performance have been the hallmarks of the line, and the factory doubled down in 2016 with a heavily updated version of its 800 and the even more race-tastic 800 RR. The revisions brought changes from the bones up with a completely reworked frame to carry the improved engine, and a whole passel of electronic features to help you keep it all under control. Riders can expect around 108-horsepower from the base 800, and even more from the RR, so these new kids on the block definitely uphold the reputation for performance established by earlier incarnations. I’ve been looking forward to getting to know the new Brutales, and now that I have I can say that I wish I’d done it earlier. Read on to find out why.

2015 - 2017 MV Agusta Brutale 1090 RR

2015 - 2017 MV Agusta Brutale 1090 RR

Meccanica Verghera Agusta quickly made its mark on the motorcycle-racing world back in 1945 when it started producing motorcycles in post-war Italy. Legend has it that the brothers Agusta shifted from manufacturing airplanes to motorcycle both to save the jobs of the factory workers and to fund their own penchant for racing.

Over the years, MV Agusta has remained a rather small company with an over-sized footprint on the track, who in 2010 added the 1090 RR to the already decade-old Brutale family. Although the 1090 is available sans the “RR” through Canadian dealers, the factory restricted U.S. imports to the more race-tastic and powerful “RR” model for 2017. MV Agusta isn’t a brand that gets a lot of recognition in the U.S. because reasons, so join me while I illustrate why it should.

MV Agusta Announces New Line-Up Of 1,000 CC Bikes For 2016

MV Agusta Announces New Line-Up Of 1,000 CC Bikes For 2016

Driven by continued growth and stronger-than-expected-economic growth, MV Agusta is preparing to launch three new 1,000 cc motorcycles in 2016. Company CEO Giovanni Castiglioni made the announcement during the "Gli Amici di Claudio" motorcycle rally, hinting at a dawn of a new age for the Italian motorcycle company.

No specific details were given about the new machines, but they are expected to generate a lot of excitement in the sports bike segment, specifically in the manner by which MV Agusta has rebounded from its own financial difficulties to come out with renewed vigor and desire to once again stake its claim in the market.

What we do know is that these new models will be completely redesigned from the ground up. That means that they’ll most likely be all-new machines that we haven’t seen before, which is all you need to know about why Castiglioni’s announcement is generating all sorts of excitement from all pockets of the sports bike market.

It’s been a while since we last saw an all-new sports bike from MV Agusta. The company has traditionally been at the forefront of design and technology for this segment so you can imagine how these machines will be received if the Italian motorcycle firm lives up to our expectations of these new bikes.

The announcement of these bikes also puts a cloud on the future of the F4 and its naked cousin, the Brutale. Both machines have carried the sports bike flag for MV Agusta for quite some time now and with the company enjoying levels of success it hasn’t had in recent years, a successor to the F4 and by extension, the Brutale, could be what Castiglioni was referring to when he talked about the company’s plans to launch three new sports bikes next year.

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.

Tamborini Corse T1, the meaner MV Agusta Brutale

Tamborini Corse T1, the meaner MV Agusta Brutale

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.

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.

2010 MV Agusta Brutale 990R and 1090RR

2010 MV Agusta Brutale 990R and 1090RR

Ahead of Brutale’s 10-year anniversary, MV Agusta introduces the new 990R and 1090RR models, which are claimed to be 85 percent new. Although the bikes don’t look different at all compared to the previous generation, they actually feature the same redesigned headlight, instrument cluster and instrumentation, handlebar, rear view mirrors, key block as well as bodywork and technical fittings.

But things go “from bad to worse” when trying to spot performance gains and weight losses because there are no such achievements on the new MV Agusta Brutale motorcycles. Despite the fact that the 990R model’s engine has grown from 982.3cc to 998cc, it lost 3bhp, won 2lb/ft of torque and needs to move around with 5kg more. The 1090RR lost 9.8bhp and 1 lb/ft of torque and it is also 5kg heavier than before. Still, both models meet Euro 4 emissions regulations, which is most likely what generated the fairly ugly turn.

We hope that MV Agusta models aren’t borrowing from Harley-Davidson’s DNA now that the Italian company was bought by the American one, but considering the $3k higher price, we’re in for a dilemma. Press release and specifications follow after the jump.

2010 MV Agusta Brutale spied in Spain

2010 MV Agusta Brutale spied in Spain

The fellows at MCN got their hands on the latest spy shots of the 2010 MV Agusta Brutale. The pictures were taken earlier this week at the Almeria circuit in Spain and they reveal a new chassis and styling. More precisely, the steel trellis frame has been redesigned, while the new headlight is probably the most obvious change of this new model year. Apparently, the tank and seat carry on unchanged.

In what the engine is concerned, this is currently known to have suffered no significant upgrade and, given the fact that two bikes have been caught during tests, we reckon the 989cc and 1078cc versions will be kept as well.

There’s no official word from Agusta on this model yet.

2006 MV-Agusta Brutale 910

BRUTALE 910: LA DIVA

For those real lovers of élite motorcycles, the arrival of the Brutale meant the fulfillment of a dream- the dream of having a machine capable of performing and handling like a Hypersport but as laid back and fun to ride as a Naked. The recent success story of the Brutale shows how just such a dream was fulfilled. In just two years these bikes are now to be found in the garages that matter. The Brutale has won over 5,000 new customers and the critics have repeatedly acclaimed her as “Motorcycle of the Year”. The fact that they are widely used by people involved in the worlds of sport, show business and fashion, as well as being an icon of desire, has contributed greatly towards making this MV Agusta a true phenomenon and a symbol of all that is good about Made in Italy. The 750cc Brutale had no equal for style and sophistication and offered performance that none of its rivals could match. Recently they have resorted to increasing their engine capacities in the vain hope of making up lost ground. Now with a new 910cc engine, the MV Agusta once more leaves the opposition in her slipstream and goes back to her rightful position - leading the field. The engine unleashes 70.8 ft. lbs. of torque at 7,900 rpm and then goes on up to the 11,000 rpm limit to deliver its full power load of 136 horsepower.
