2016 MV Agusta Brutale 800 Review

2016 MV Agusta Brutale 800 on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

The constant search for symmetry…

The New Brutale 800 changes completely to remain loyal to itself, and to its ability to amaze and conquer new generations of enthusiasts. Style, engine, equipment and chassis are all called into question again with the aim of creating the best Brutale of all time.

Today, fifteen years after its first appearance, the New Brutale 800 is once again taking on the future. Fully redesigned and yet still tied to its origins, the New Brutale 800 is more effective on the road, delivers more efficient performances and it is naturally more beautiful.

With a new take on its proportions, modelled on more sculpted shapes and focused on the front end, the New Brutale 800 enhances the reinterpretation of the main stylistic features, such as the elliptical shape of the headlamp, now a Full LED, and the three-pipe exhaust, with increased shape and capacity (+ 3 litres). At the heart of the new style, however, there is the futuristic frame of the saddle chassis in light alloy, which blends in with the trapezoidal tank (capacity 16.5 litres), integrated with the air box and providing greater definition and aggression.

From an aesthetic point of view, the design of the New Brutale 800 reveals a constant search for symmetry, also in the colour, the creation of the footpeg mounts, the ducts and the front headlight supports. Some of the brand new features on the New Brutale 800 include its double saddle, concealed passenger handles, rear light and LED indicators. The instrument panel has also changed, with a new handlebar and the addition of the clutch pump and the related tank which raises the quality of the area, thanks also to the renewed digital instrument panel and electric switches


TRUE. DRIVEN. PASSIONATE

We wanted to condense 15 years of experience in a revolutionary motorcycle. We wanted to imprint the values of our factory. We wanted it to be “true” as the story of the MV Agusta brand, “driven” as our striving for beauty and “passionate” as the thirst for perfection of every rider who chooses us. We wanted to give its performance the technology it deserved . We wanted to create the most beautiful Brutale ever. We think we have succeeded.

 

WE ENGINEER EMOTIONS.

If the first Brutale 750 was a bike for the academics of riding, the new 800 communicates to all levels of biking experience. Size, riding position, weight and power delivery are a perfect balance between performance and ease of riding. For this reason we believe that the new Brutale is not just the most beautiful but also the best ever.

The new Brutale 800 shows off the new MV Agusta logo on the fuel tank. A pride that comes from the ability to create unique motorbikes, where the matter is sculpted with artistic inspiration, without compromises or technical constraints. Starting from the trapezoidal shapes of the fuel tank, to the light alloy of the Full LED Projector supports, to the tail- each component reveals something unique.

The new three-cylinder engine of the Brutale 800 has now 116 hp at 11.500 rpm while the maximum torque is 83 Nm at 7600 rpm, as much as 25% more than the previous version. It is managed by the integrated MVICS including multimap Full Ride by Wire integrated to the traction control adjustable on 8 levels. In its category it is also the only one to boast the up shift & downshift EAS 2.0, in addition to the hydraulically controlled slipper clutch.

The new chassis of the Brutale 800 has a wheelbase extended by 20 mm while the trail changes from 95 to 103.5 mm. The trellis structure combined with aluminum plates, fits the unprecedented seat frame in light alloy, an expression of modernity and design genius. Components at the top of the category, with Brembo radial calipers and multiadjustable suspension

2016 MV Agusta Brutale 800 www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

ENGINE


There have been changes in the engine too, with the latest development of the three cylinders with counter-rotating crankshaft, to meet Euro 4 emission standards, that is capable of delivering a maximum power output of 116 hp at 11,500 rpm. A record maximum torque, increased by 25% with 83 Nm at 7,600 rpm, with 90% of the value already available at 3,800 rpm.

In addition to the counter-rotating crankshaft, another unique feature is the fact that the new Brutale 800 is the only one its category with electronic EAS 2.0 up&down gear shift. The slipper clutch is now hydraulically operated while the engine is managed by the MVICS system which includes integrated multi map Full Ride by Wire in the traction control with 8 settings.

 

FRAME AND SUSPENSION


In terms of handling, the New Brutale 800 has a new frame with a wheelbase that has been extended to 1400 mm (+20mm), and a trail that is now 103.5 (95mm in the previous version). The ALS steel tubing frame is incorporated with light aluminium alloy clamps in the rear area of the pivot of the single swingarm.

The Marzocchi fork has 43 mm diameter upside aluminium forks with a travel of 125 mm: which is 1 mm more than the Sachs shock absorber, which is tethered to the single swingarm. The brake system is Brembo throughout, with a pair of 320 mm diameter front floating disks and brake callipers with four pistons, whilst at the rear a twin piston calliper acts on a 220 mm disk.

The Bosch ABS 9 Plus completes the picture, guaranteeing safety and performance on any road surface. From a safety perspective, the new Pirelli Diablo Rosso III tyres, fitted as original equipment for the first time ever on a standard production motorbike, are an additional asset.
