Another new Brutale unveiled

Want to unleash your inner Yankee Doodle? You can buy MV Agusta's new Brutale RR1090 in a red-white-and blue American paint scheme.















MV Agusta has released details on another new naked motorcycle, their Brutale RR 1090.

It’s running the same 1078cc inline-four engine as last year’s Brutale 1090 RR (note the minor change to the name), but it’s been retuned to put out 158 hp, thanks to larger throttle bodies, hotter cams, and reworked air intakes.

What other features have MV Agusta included to persuade you to part with your money? How about eight-mode traction control, Cro Mo steel frame, slipper clutch, adjustable steering geometry, Brembo monoblock calipers, and 320mm rotors?

We don't know when it will show up in Canada, or how much it will cost when it gets here.

Front forks are 50mm units from Marzocchi, and the rear shock is by Sachs, with compression damping at high and low speeds, and rebound and pre-load adjustment.

Want more? Actually, there’s less Brutale than before – engineers put the bike on a diet, and managed to get the dry weight down to 403 lbs, including a 2lb drop in unsprung weight.

We don’t have Canadian pricing yet, but they’re paying 18,800 pounds for this in the UK, so it’s not going to be cheap.
