MV Agusta is getting plenty of use from their new three-cylinder motor design.

MV Agusta continues to roll out new models; now, they’ve announced the new Brutale 800.

Also available in a blue/white paint scheme!

Like the 800 cc Rivale, this bike’s motor will be based around a punched-out version of the company’s 675 cc triple, putting out a claimed 125 hp and 60 lb-ft of torque. The longer stroke means that not only does the 800 make more power than the 675, it also does it at lower rpms.

The liquid-and oil-cooled motor puts that power to the ground through a six-speed transmission.

Dry weight for the new bike will be a claimed 166 kg (367 pounds). The bike will have a high-spec electronics package, including ride-by-wire throttle, traction control and optional electronic shift assistance.

The chassis is a steel trellis frame and single-sided swingarm, with 43 mm Marzocchi USD forks up front. The forks and rear shock are adjustable for compression, rebound and spring preload.

Braking comes from dual 320 mm discs up front, with four-piston Brembo radial calipers. There’s a twin-piston 220 mm Brembo caliper in back. Front and rear wheels are both 17-inch units. Seat height is 810 mm. Fuel capacity is 16.6 litres.

The bike will be available in red/silver, red/white, grey/white and white/blue paint schemes.

MV Agusta seems to want to spill the beans on all their new models before the EICMA show.

Wheelbase is 1380 mm, and suspension travel is 125 mm in front and back.

We don’t have Canadian pricing or availability details yet, but in Europe, the machine’s pricing starts at 9,900 Euros.
