MV Agusta has just revealed a third model to its Brutale lineup dubbed the 800 ahead of its official unveiling at the EICMA motor show in Milan later this month.
Sharing the same 798cc three-cylinder motor rumoured to be powering the MV Agusta Rivale, the MV Agusta 800 is a stroked-out version of the Brutale 675, with the stroke length going from 45.9mm to 54.3mm, while the bore remains at 79mm.
Power has now peaked at 123bhp at 11,600 rpm (up 12bhp over the 675) and 80Nm of torque at 8,600rpm (15 per cent increase) — all for a claimed top speed of 246kmh.
MV Agusta is claiming a 167kg dry weight for the Brutale 800, which is 4kg heavier than the Brutale 675. Like the MV Agusta Brutale 675, the Brutale 800 has an optional electronically assisted shift (EAS) system, which comes standard on the White/Blue pearl "Italia" edition.
On the chassis side, the suspension has been upgraded to a fully-adjustable suspension system, both front and back, while the brakes have also been upgraded to higher-spec Brembo monoblocs.
The Brutale 800 is also fitted with the company's Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System (MVICS) which features an eight-level adjustable traction control system and ride by wire technology. The Brutale 800 will be available in Ruby Metallic Red/Silver, White/Mamba Red, Matt metallic Grey/Pearl White and White/Blue Pearl "Italia" colour combinations.
