2013 MV Agusta Brutale 1090RR ABS Review

2013 MV Agusta Brutale 1090RR ABS

An absolute missile capable of exceptional performance and with ABS brakes.

The most celebrated four-cylinder naked has been redesigned with increased charm, components and quality of finish.

Maximum performance without compromise, this is the creed of the Brutale RR 1090. The Brutale RR 1090 sits at the top of the Brutale 2013 line-up, it is an absolute missile capable of exceptional performance and a level of handling that makes all other naked bikes pale by comparison. The 1078cc four-cylinder engine with radial intake and exhaust valves offers the highest power output ever by a Brutale. New camshafts, new intake tracts, new throttle bodies (same bore diameter as the F4) all contribute to the record power level of 116,5 kW (156 hp) at 11.900 rpm. This engine is simply extraordinary and capable of satisfying even the most demanding rider thanks to the addition of the slipper clutch, new engine mapping and traction control with 8 levels of intervention.

The chassis of the MV Agusta Brutale RR 1090 is worthy of an authentic superbike without fairings, the ultra-light CrMo steel tube chassis that is hand welded (TIG) with adjustable steering geometry that allows the rider to adapt the geometry to their personal needs. Logically, a superbike needs to have the best suspension available: Marzocchi 50mm USD front forks with DLC coating and dedicated valving for the Brutale RR 1090, together with a Sachs single shock with high and low speed compression adjusters along with rebound and spring pre-load adjusters. Completing the high level of components are the brakes and wheels: Brembo monobloc front brake calipers (the same as on the hypersport F4RR) with 320mm rotors as well as new cast aluminum wheels that accentuate its already stunning performance and looks.

The new Brutale RR 1090 offers an extremely high level of fit and finish including a projector beam headlight with incorporated LED position lights, LED front turn signals incorporated into the rear-view mirrors, LED day running lights arranged symmetrically on either side of the dashboard cover and LED rear turn signals. The Brutale RR 1090 is available in 3 color combinations: Red/Silver, Metallic Blue/Pearl White and Metallic Gold/Pearl White

Three Brutale variants with three distinct characters. The Brutale 4 cylinder 2013 range is based on three new models: Brutale 1090, Brutale 1090 R and Brutale 1090 RR.


 

 

2013 MV Agusta Brutale 1090RR ABS Key Features

In detail, the main features of MV Agusta Brutale are:

• In-line four cylinder engine with two configurations of maximum power
• Traction control adjustable on 8 levels
• Modular frame with tubular steel trellis section and aluminum plates offering a high torsional stiffness
• Single-sided swing arm with adjustable absorber
• 50 mm diameter inverted forks
• ABS Brakes with radial front calipers


 

2013 MV Agusta Brutale 1090RR ABS Features and Benefits


Design

Form and function: following these inspirational principles Brutale continues to fascinate and has evolved in many details. Having immediate impact are the lighting elements, day running lights, arranged symmetrically on either side of the dashboard cover: capable of enhancing the whole frontal section, also making the motorcycle more visible and therefore safe during day and night. Another ray of light comes from the four-cylinder engine, now silver, a color that emphasizes its compactness and accurate implementation of all its elements. The same chromatic range characterizes the new wheels, a unique design in the motorcycle industry: the multiple spokes are split and give rise to a fascinating design and at the same time efficient, considering the weight of a pair of wheels has been decreased by about 1.500 grams compared to those fitted on previous models. The two new double exhaust silencers, a key element of the design, have become even more racing thanks to tapered ends, with a decisive diagonal cut reminiscent of American dragsters. The surface finish enhances its compact size; the new aluminum plate that prevents contact with the pipes has been redefined.
Updated features also for the new tail light, now with latest technology contour illumination, and rear view mirrors having a revised design for the Brutale 1090. On Brutale 1090 R and Brutale 1090 RR the indicators are integrated within the mirrors, benefitting look and dimensions; on these same models, the rear indicators use LEDs. The license plate holder is now metal, lighter and essential, and therefore able to further enhance the design of the compact, unique tail. On Brutale 1090 the new single piece seat benefits from new curves, improved ergonomics and a higher level of finish. Lastly, the front fender has also been redesigned with ample openings to reduce weight.


Engine

The inline four-cylinder architecture of the MV Agusta is part of history and this engine is found on the complete Brutale range. With a displacement of 1078 cc, it employ’s a bore and stroke of 79mm
and 55 mm. Unique to the motorcycle industry is the double overhead camshaft with four valves per cylinder which are arranged in a radial pattern. The engine employs both water and oil cooling with separate radiators. Two engine configurations are offered, they are characterized by different values of maximum power and torque: Brutale 1090 and Brutale 1090 R reach 144 hp (106 kW) at 10,300 rev / min and 112 Nm (11.4 kgm) of torque; Brutale 1090 RR reaches the impressive power of 158 hp (116.5 kW) at 11,900 rev / min and 100 Nm (10.2 kgm) of torque at 10,100 rev / min. The cassette style removable gearbox is a six speed, constant mesh, another touch that makes MV Agusta exclusive. The multi-plate clutch in runs in an oil bath and on the Brutale 1090 RR it employs race track derived slipper clutch unit.


Frame

The composite frame of the Brutale is composed of the high strength tubular ALS steel front section coupled to the single sided swingarm by two aluminum plates. This configuration provides the best balance between efficiency and weight, as well as a characteristic of every MV Agusta. Size and dimensions remain the same: wheelbase of 1438 mm Brutale 1090 RR (1430mm on Brutale 1090 and Brutale 1090 R), trail of 103.5 mm.


Suspensions

Brutal continues to be the benchmark for handling thanks to the continually refined and improved suspension. The 50 mm diameter front forks are fully adjustable by means of special external adjusters: compression on one leg, rebound on the other and spring preload on both legs. The new axle carrier allows quick release of the front wheel: a touch of functionality typically found only on race bikes. The shock is completely tunable with some distinctions depending on the version: on the Brutale1090 and Brutale 1090 R it is possible to adjust the rebound and spring preload; Brutale 1090 RR offers a wider range of adjustment, in addition to the spring preload and rebound damping it is also possible to vary the low and high speed hydraulic compression damping.


Brakes


The braking system of every Brutale employs components of the highest quality: two front discs 310 mm in diameter for Brutale 1090 and Brutale 1090 R, 320 mm discs are used on the Brutale 1090 RR, floating, with steel braking discs and an aluminum disc carrier. The rear disc is also made of steel with a diameter of 210 mm. Calipers are four-piston front and rear; Brutale 1090 RR employs Brembo monobloc front calipers for maximum braking efficiency and weight reduction.
