2014 MV Agusta Brutale 800 Dragster

THE MOST EXTREME AND ESSENTIAL BRUTALE EVER...


Throttle wide open. Engine at the rev limit. The rear wheel spinning relentlessly trying to gain traction, surrounded by a cloud of white smoke, defenning tyre squeal, raw power, biting into the tarmac and devouring it metre after metre. The MV Agusta Brutale 800 Dragster is all this and much, much more. It is motorcycling reduced to the essence of pure riding pleasure. Emotional, freedom.

MV Agusta continues to expand its motorcycle range: after introducing the Rivale 800, the emblem of motard-style sports appeal and ultra-dynamic road performance, the new Brutale 800 Dragster takes the very concept of 'motorcycling passion' and makes it breathtakingly tangible. No mere means of transport, a motorcycle is a symbol of freedom, of our need to get out there and explore and to savour mile after spine-tingling mile. Experiencing every single second of that freedom. The new Brutale 800 Dragster embodies and embraces the ambitions and dreams of every biker, making them nothing less than on-the-road reality. Thrills.

Unforgettable moments. The 3-cylinder Brutale 675 and 800 have introduced countless riders to that awesome buzz that goes with riding a high-performance naked bike. Outstanding ridability, power under constant control, lightness, great design, and exceptional value for money. This unmatched combination has made the 3-cylinder Brutale a huge success. Now, the Brutale 800 Dragster takes a big step forward into the future, yet does so with an attentive eye to the past. The most extreme Brutale ever is no fan of compromise: irreverent and brash, it is essential, brusque, outspoken and irascible. Packing a powerful punch, the Brutale 800 Dragster takes exhilaration to a whole new level. At the same time it draws on the ideas that shaped the first 4-cylinder Brutale bikes, the very essence of the naked concept and monuments to incomparable styling. Linking yesterday and tomorrow, the Brutale 800 Dragster embodies both experience and intuition, symbolising motorcycling past, present and forever. Pure essence. Pure thrills.

I mean, obviously, awesome right? How could this beast be anything else?

At first blush. But what is it about motorcycling that makes it awesome for me? What else is awesome?

The throaty rumble-pop of exhaust as you decelerate down a steep decline in I-15's picturesque Snake River Canyon between St. George and Mesquite.
An ocean of lights unfolding before you as you come off that final left-hander in the Valley of Fire and make the descent into the Las Vegas Valley.
Riding RT-35 through Tabonia and passing fields still blanketed under two feet of snow in July.
A crisp, cool rainburst on a 90 degree day, rain stinging on your shoulders and streaking off the knees of your chaps.
Or leaving Ogden on a hot summer day and taking a ride that, although is only an hour long, ends on a cool autumn afternoon at the Upper Monte Cristo campground. And then riding backwards through time into summer after stretching your legs. Time travel on two wheels.

Those things, to me, are the essence of motorcycling. And the bike that does them well looks and acts nothing like the Brutale. I can't deny this bike is stunning, exciting, sexy and impressive. But it doesn't SPEAK to me, and for that reason, UnCool.

the only question I have is why? Why build such an ugly POS? Why build a bike that is neither a track machine nor a comfortable street machine? Sorry, but there are more then a few really good looking and more useful power machines out there. Big a$$ed fail for me.
Always ask why.

Cool. I like the technology, I like that MV Augusta is still kicking after being "dog" slapped by Harley. I'm not too keen on the Transformers styling (I keep waiting for it to turn into a robot with the tailpipes morphing into three cannons), but then again the whole streetfighter genre isn't about looks.

I like the looks, unique and yes it might transform. Over 18 grand is a lot of money for an 800cc motorcycle that is not a touring rig. It still looks like it would be a lot of fun to ride.

Ummm........ nah. Not for me.

What's up with MV Agusta? This is the second time in two months I've voted down a MV Agusta bike for stomach-turning ugliness (remember the Veloce we reviewed right before Christmas?) Can't believe this is the same company that brought us the original F4.

I also read a review of the 800 Brutale in my favorite motorcycle mag. They panned the ragged fuel injection and two-stroke-like power band hit. That bike is barely usable on the street, and I can't imagine this version of the Brutale is any different.

Uncool.

Well, it certainly has a look. That's my problem with it; that's what it's for. This is the ultimate poser machine. Not useful for touring, commuting, racing nor, god forbid, on-off road. It's useful for burning rubber (something I've never understood) and making people look at you (because normally they don't pay any attention to you otherwise). Harsh words I know. But can you really see yourself try to do anything for longer than 5 minutes on that thing? I can't. I'll admit the first minute would be a blast. But that's a lot of dough for a minute's pleasure at a time.

And they don't know how to spell "deafening" either.

I really like the looks of the regular 800 Brutale, and would vote that an awesome. But the Dragster is pretty much the exact same bike, with no rear seat and a wider rear tire, for 2400 Euros more. Pricing fail.

I had to vote: Awesome.

O-M-G. I want it and I had to wait 7 days to say that so I didn't taint the voting. :cheer:

What an awesome looking motorcycle. It's not practical, it's not cheap, it doesn't even have a rear seat... But there is a "WOW" factor there, a real "hooligan naked" bike and it's a super-premium MV Agusta brand name as well... wow.

I prefer to think of MV Agusta as the Lamborghini of motorcycles. Like the 2013 Lamborghini Aventador LP1250-4, it is in it's own world:

But all that said, I'd go for the normal Brutale 800 myself as I'm just a tad more practical... unless my right hand says differently at the time :revv:

Your Coolness Factor of the 2014 MV Agusta Brutale 800 Dragster is:

Awesome (3 points) 37% [ 13 ]
Cool (2 points) 37% [ 13 ]
Uncool (1 point) 17% [ 6 ]
Fail (0 point) 9% [ 3 ]

Total votes : 35

= a Coolwall Factor of 67.6%

NOTES: Controversial design for sure. It may not be practical, or cheap, and it doesn't even come with a rear seat... But there is a "WOW" factor there, a real "hooligan naked" bike. Question is, it is too controversial?


Next 2014 TMW Cool Wall bike is now up for voting on, have fun!!
