2015 MV Agusta Brutale 800 Review

2015 MV Agusta Brutale 800 on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

A perfect combination of aesthetics, functionality, design, ergonomics, form and substance…

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 make the Brutale 800 leader in its segment. Graphics and special colors 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 a unique power to weight ratio. Aside from the new engine, the Brutale 800 offers a new adjustable suspension allowing the riders complete personalization.

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 optimized 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 personalized. 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 aluminum alloy plates, and a sculpted single-arm rear suspension.

Brutale 800 joins Brutale 675 with its increased performance, dynamics and untouchable MV Agusta style. A motorcycle capable of satisfying the most demanding of motorcycle enthusiasts.

The design
MV Agusta Brutale 800 is distinctive at first glance. A perfect combination of aesthetics, functionality, design, ergonomics, form and substance. Unique in its kind, this three-cylinder is aligned with the standards of excellence of the Brutale 675, yet remains distinctive with new graphics and further detail enhancements. The overall compactness is visually impressive, with the mechanical components dominating; the three-cylinder engine is almost completely exposed to view, embraced by the distinctive frame and compact exhaust system. The silencer is modeled in such a way as to ensure maximum capacity and efficiency while remaining perfectly integrated. The tailpiece is essential yet elegant. Even the headlight characterizes the design, by combining the original elements and stylistic features of the Brutale range. The distinctive three element exhaust pipe remains another key visual component of MV Agusta Brutale.



 


2015 MV Agusta Brutale 800 www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

The characteristics
In detail, the main features of MV Agusta Brutale 800 are:
• three-cylinder in-line engine with counter-rotating crankshaft
• Technology MVICS (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System)
• Traction control adjustable on 8 levels
• Frame structure mixed steel trellis and aluminum plates for high torsional rigidity
• Single-sided swingarm with adjustable rear shock absorber
• Upside down adjustable 43mm front fork
• Racing radial front calipers

 

 

2015 MV Agusta Brutale 800 www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

The engine
The new three-cylinder engine 800 has a stroke of 54.3 mm and delivers power and torque of 125 hp at 11,600 revs / min limiter at 13,000 rpm. The maximum torque is also significant touching 81 NM at 8600 rpm., The power and torque curves are strengthened and increased ensuring prompt throttle response and a generous delivery across the entire rev range. This level of performance, associated with a dry weight of 167 kg, put the Brutale 800 at the top of the category “naked” setting the new benchmark.
With F3 675 and Brutale 675 the new Brutale 800 shares most of the components. and fundamental technical choices: first, the counter-rotating crankshaft, previously used only in MotoGP is able to offer the best balance while driving, reducing inertia when changing direction and thus increasing the maneuverability of the vehicle.
The shell molded crankcase employs a “closed deck” with integrated bores and features integrated circuits for both oil and water, with internal pump unit location. This reduces component numbers and offers visual cleanliness to the engine exterior. The final transmission ratio is increased, by virtue of superior performance and through the mounting of a sprocket with two teeth less.

The electronics
Brutale 675 boasts the most advanced electronic management within its category. In its succession the Brutale 800 also excels by applying advanced race technology to mass production. The system MVICS (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System) ensures the integrated control of the vehicle and the engine: This allows combining management of the three cylinders with the traction control, to achieve high performance with safety. Technological innovation is epitomized by the use of Full Ride By Wire. The electronic control of the throttle body, which together with the mapping for injection and ignition, optimizes the air-fuel mixture at all engine speeds of delivery, maximizing available power and torque as a function on request from the rider. Compared to the traditional mechanical throttle, the Full Ride By Wire allows you to untie completely the rotation of the accelerator and throttle openings, leaving the task to electronics to achieve the optimum solution offering improved efficiency and a response exceeding the expectations of the rider. Brutale 800 system uses a multi-map, with three preset modes and one fully customizable so you can choose the most appropriate delivery to meet specific conditions. The integration of MVICS includes traction control on eight levels, adjustable in seconds and visible on the digital dashboard intervening throttle, ignition advance and injection.

The frame
Handling, traction, ease of use and performance: The objectives of the project were achieved by focusing on the chassis with a mixed structure. An unmistakable trademark of MV Agusta, consisting of the front section steel tube trellis and two aluminum alloy plates, fulcrum point for the long single sided swingarm, designed to ensure the most efficient transmission of power to the asphalt.

The suspensions
Improved performance through increased levels of control and variability: The MV Agusta Brutale 800 is fitted with an upside down fork and shock absorber with hydraulic response customizable. The upside down fork 43 mm in diameter, characterized by the excellent fluidity, with an excursion of 125 mm and is adjustable in compression, rebound and spring preload. The rear shock absorber provides 119 mm stroke, adjustable in compression, rebound and spring preload. Brutale 800, therefore, adds to the versatility of the Brutale 675 with increased suspension regulation that further enhance riding dynamics.

The brakes
Brutale 800 offers a braking system of the highest quality utilizing a pair of front 320 mm diameter discs, with Brembo four-piston (32 mm diameter) radial calipers and also at the rear a high performance twin-piston (34 mm diameter) Brembo caliper, matched to a 220 mm disc. All of this paired to the Bosch 9 Plus ABS System.

Colors
The new Brutale 800 ABS color combinations:
• Pearl Ice White / Sand Metallic Grey
• Red / Silver
• Matte Avio Grey / Matte Metallic Black
