2013 MV Agusta Brutale 800

A motorcycle capable of satisfying the most demanding of motorcycle enthusiasts.

The new 800 engine offers increased power, torque and riding dynamics for the naked MV Agusta. The new adjustable suspension and the new advanced electronics package makes the Brutale 800 leader in its segment. Graphics and special colours accentuate the unmistakably lines of MV Agusta.

Brutale three-cylinder means handling, extreme agility, and absolute ease of use. Now with the new engine power and torque comparable to a 1.000cc, and with a weight of only 167 kg, the 800 Brutale offers an unique power to weight ratio. Aside from the new engine, the Brutale 800 offers a new adjustable suspension allowing the riders complete personalisation.

A dependable advanced electronics package unique within this category: MVICS (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System), the integrated management system of the vehicle, includes the first Full Ride by Wire with multi-map and integrated traction control. Offering optimised delivery at all engine speeds, maximum engine efficiency in terms of fuel consumption, and of course the opportunity to select different engine characteristics, choosing from the four available maps: three pre-sets, one personalised. Traction control also ensures safety and performance on any road or track surface, allowing the driver to concentrate entirely on riding. The three-cylinder engine, which debuted on the supersport F3 675, forms the basis for the technological progress in its class, thanks to exclusive technical solutions such as the counter-rotating crankshaft, used in MotoGP, but never before seen on a production bike. The frame performance is guaranteed, thanks to MV Agusta’ s unique mixed structure: the front section of steel tube trellis combined with two light aluminium alloy plates, and a sculpted single-arm rear suspension.

Brutale 800 joins Brutale 675 with its increased performance, dynamics and untouchable MV Agusta style.

Ok, here we go (yet again, can you believe it?) our 9th in-a-row, never-seen-before Cool Wall bike now up!

No pricing yet for the USA (the bike was JUST announcned this morning). But it seems it will be available in the USA from media information I have about it. I would guess around $17k for a price. Hopefully less.

That gets an AWESOME vote from me!!

Just looks wicked...love the F3 inspired exhaust and the look of the bike is chizelled naked...even though I'm looking for a touring bike and am quite happy with my naked bike, this might have got my attention more than my MT-01.

Later.

Wow, didn't they just announce the Brutale 675 a coupla months ago? I guess MV are matching Ducati's Monsters, tier by tier.

I vote Dead Sexy.....or awesome if I must.
I fell in love with the Brutale in 2005 when I was at Laguna Seca for the GP and I saw my first (modern)example of an MV. It was just like this one \/ and I would have imported one to Canada if I could have figured out how at the time (they have only been available here for just over a year now). Let's hope the fueling is sorted better than the new F3. Awesome machines - but maybe only slightly starting to look dated...

OMG - no contest - this bike is AWESOME and then some! This bike is one of the very rare ones on the cool wall that deserves a higher category than Awesome. I'll go with High_Side on this one... Dead Sexy!

I am so in love with the Brutale line and hopefully one day I will own one. And if I go for a 2013 I would be buying the white & blue one. I can't stop staring and drooling!!!

I'll second (third? tertiate?) the two posts above -- Dead Sexy. This is the first crotch rocket I've seen here that really looks 'original' compared to the rest. Just beautiful. Still not the bike for me, but I'd sure love to borrow one for a weekend.

But, I'll bet that if you can get panniers for it they'll still look like WalMart tool boxes. (-:

I voted awesome. I almost bought a 910 Brutale when I bought the Hypermotard. I'm not sure exactly what swayed me away from it but one of the things that did turn me off was the horrible mileage of about 25 mpg according to the bike rags. I don't know about the triple but the Inline-4 Brutale has one of the most intoxicating sounding exhausts ever. In tems of looks, the Brutale of any incarnation is one of the best looking bikes ever made.

The White/Blue Pearl one is stunning, but what's up with the Italian tri-colore on the side; it totally clashes with the gorgeous blue pearl. :?

If they wanted to make an Italian Edition how about a Green Tank and bodywork, Red trellis Frame, and White Wheels? :kicking:

OR make the rims out of pepperoni with mushrooms for tires, the exhausts out of hot Italian sausage, the tank from tomato sauce and the long curved seat from mozzarella... That would be a truly delicious bike!

It's starting to grow on me a little. All three look really great. The Gray with the Red trellis and the brown seat looks the most appealing to me right now.

I went cool. The bike looks great, but I feel that manufacturers are moving towards the UIM trend to replace the old UJM standard.

I had to go: Awesome.

In my mind (feel free to disagree with me) but the order of hierarchy in manufacturers has always placed MV Agusta Benelli at the top of the chain. Other brands are close but these are the two "Lamborghini’s of the motorcycle world. The style, fit, finish and quality is something to be admired (somewhat like the Moto Guzzi V7 Racer), and you could stare at it for hours.

Now the Brutale line is an absolutely gorgeous line. Not sure why the 675 and the 800, but maybe you can never have too much of a good thing!

As for the price, it's a premium for sure, but then again, you own a MV Agusta. Like my Moto Guzzi V7, I can't complain too much about the cost of oil changes (it takes 10w60 full synth) when I ride such a rarity. As a MV Agusta owner, I'm sure everything isn't cheap; but you'll have many drooling over your bike for sure.

As for which color would I chose? I would have to go with the white/blue one, it's just so out there. :D

Great voter turnout in the first week! (Now it sounds like the US elections...haha)

Unlike the votes in the US election though, every vote counts here and influences the other votes as well as the final result! So even though this bike came to be 93% awesome/cool, there was still 7% that didn't think so and those were not throw away votes at all.

But in the end, the Brutale line has always been an awesome line-up and the brand new Brutale 800 is no different at all.


Your Coolness Factor of the 2013 MV Agusta Brutale 800 is...

Awesome 61%
Cool 32%
Uncool 2%
Fail 5%

Voting is always open so if you didn't vote in the first week for this or any bike on our Cool Wall you can always go back and vote on the ones you missed! :)
