2021 MV Agusta Brutale RR: POWER. MORE IS BETTER.
Introducing the 2021 MV Agusta Brutale RR…
The latest milestone on a journey that began with the original Brutale, sharing the looks of the market’s most comprehensive sports naked.
A MORE ADVANCED BRUTALE THAN EVER BEFORE
A refined engine, a revolutionary electronics package and a more effective chassis architecture. These few words sum up the new Brutale RR MY21. The upgrades address every aspect of the bike, from the engine, to the chassis architecture and even the entirely revamped electronics section. The result is a Brutale that is still razor-sharp, but even easier to manage, thanks to state-of-the-art electronics.

2021 MV Agusta Brutale RR Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits
ENGINE, RELENTLESS IMPROVEMENT
The in-line three-cylinder engine with counter rotating crankshaft (still unique in the segment), received numerous upgrades which improve its character and power output. Obviously, Euro 5 compliant, maintaining 140 peak HP, it has gained character and sophistication.
The new DLC-coated tappets and the new valve guide materials help further reduce internal friction, thereby improving engine efficiency at any rpm. Added to this are a redesigned exhaust system and new-generation injectors that raise injection pressure from 3.5 to 4 bar. The new ECU provides even more precise throttle management. The clutch was also revised to improve reliability and launch precision, with a more robust clutch basket.
At the same time, the EAS 3.0 electronic gearbox, now in its third generation, features a new sensor and offers faster and more precise gear changes with smoother shifting.
ELECTRONICS, STATE OF THE ART
The electronics compartment of the new Brutale 800 is undoubtedly the area where the benefits of the generational leap are clearest. The arrival of the IMU inertial platform developed by Milan-based e-Novia exclusively for MV Agusta brought the level of electronic controls to the state of the art.
The management of Traction Control and ABS (with cornering function) is now precise and accurate. The FLC “Front Lift Control” is also based on MV Agusta’s philosophy, seeking to avoid compromising the excitement of sports riding while maintaining the high safety standards required of a modern sportbikes. There fore, the current front lift control does not prevent a wheelie, but manages and controls it offering the maximum acceleration and emotion. But it isn’t just “concealed” electronics that have made a generational leap – the ones right under the rider’s nose have also evolved radically. The new, 5.5” TFT dashboard makes a big impact. It is highly comprehensive and capable of communicating with the MV Ride App, which lets you personalise every aspect of the bike directly from your Smartphone, as well as offering the more “classic” features, like recording and sharing routes. The mirroring function also allows the dashboard to be used as a satnav unit with corner by corner directions. Every function can be accessed and navigated quickly via the new joystick control on the left-hand block.
FRAME, MORE COMFORTABLE AND EFFICIENT
Now universally recognised as one of the best in the segment, the Brutale’s frame has been further upgraded in a continuous search for efficiency and control. Updates were made to all areas of the bike, starting with the frame, which benefits from new side plates that improve its torsional and longitudinal rigidity. All the Brutale 800 MY21 family models also receive new rear suspension linkage. Featuring a different progression, it now works with a single shock absorber with revised spring and calibration to offer better efficiency and comfort so that you end the day still wanting to ride. The fork setting has been revised to match the new calibrations and offer the best front/rear balance.
SUPERSTRUCTURE, ATTENTION TO DETAIL
The saddle was also redesigned with an eye to comfort, and features a new type of foam. The headlight is full LED and, thanks to the presence of the IMU, has a “cornering” function, lighting up the inside of the turn when the bike tilts, thus increasing active safety. A small flyscreen protects the instrument panel and deflects airflow away from the rider’s torso. Its profile has been modified to increase its effectiveness.
DESIGN. INSTANT CLASSIC
Designed for top performance, with improvements to the chassis, electronics and engine. A dual seat with a new improved-comfort design and a simple, lightweight sub-frame represent the latest technical innovations, for an even better riding experience. Not to mention a design that has always refused to compromise.
FEEL THE POWER OF SOUND
RR means power and torque: with 140 HP and 86 Nm, fun is guaranteed. Improvements to distribution have also allowed a reduction in friction. Also new is the increased-efficiency exhaust system, while the injectors have been redesigned to guarantee better fuel atomisation.
LATEST GENERATION ELECTRONICS
The new IMU inertial platform, developed exclusively for MV Agusta, has redefined the standards of quality for electronic controls: traction control is more precise than ever, while FLC wheelie control heightens the thrill of riding without sacrificing any safety. The new EAS 3.0 electronic gearbox offers improved precision and speed.
CHASSIS ARCHITECTURE AT ITS BEST
Even excellence can be improved upon: with this in mind, the frame features new side plates which increase lateral and longitudinal rigidity.
The new rear linkage boosts progressiveness and works in harmony with the re-calibrated fork. Efficiency, comfort and a sporting thrill are the results of constant evolution.
TECHNOLOGY MEANS SAFETY
The new Continental ABS MK100 with RLM means that even the sharpest and most sudden weight transfers can be managed safely.
It includes a cornering function which enables safe breaking even on corners, as well as interfacing with the inertial platform designed specifically for the Brutale range.
