MV Agusta unveils Brutale 675

The 2012 MV Agusta Brutale 675.

Last week, MV Agusta showed us their new F3 675 supersport. Now, here’s a look at the stripped-down version, the Brutale 675.

Of course, as always, some spoilsport had to go detune that lovely 675cc motor.

According to their numbers, the Brutale, basically a naked F3 with the same oversquare three-cylinder 675cc engine. Of course, the bike will be detuned from its faired F3 counterpart, with smaller throttle bodies and engine mapping that’s adjusted accordingly.

It puts out around 113 hp at 12,000 rpm, and 52 lbs-ft of torque at 10,500 rpm, and weighs 359 lbs dry. The bike will also be fitted with the same MVICS electronic system as the F3, with launch and wheelie control, electronically-assisted quick-shifting, and ride-by-wire traction control.

Rear suspension will be from Sachs, front forks are by Marzocchi.

The Sachs rear shock will have adjustable pre-load, but fixed damping; front forks are fully adjustable upside-down units from Marzocchi.

The brakes will feature Brembo gold monobloc calipers and a Nissin radial master cylinder. The frame is a mixture of steel and aluminum, with a single-sided swingarm.

We don’t have Canadian pricing yet, but UK pricing is around 9,000 pounds.
