Motovan, distributor of MV Agusta motorcycles in Canada, has released details of the new Brutale 920, which will be included in the 2011 lineup.
At $15,595, the somewhat affordable 920 can be considered MV Agusta’s entry-level machine, though its racy features are anything but entry level.
Its 921 cc inline four uses a radial-valve head with four poppers per cylinder and claims 129 hp.
The chassis incorporates a steel trellis frame with forged aluminum side plates, a design first used by MV Agusta on the F4 supersport.
A Marzocchi 50 mm inverted fork is fully adjustable, as is the single Sachs shock, the latter acting on a single-sided aluminum swingarm. Of course, supersport-spec radial Brembos provide the stopping power.
Also on the list of high-spec items is eight-way adjustable traction control. Delivery is expected sometime next summer.
