2023 MV Agusta Brutale 1000RR: THE EXTREME HYPER NAKED.

Introducing the 2023 MV Agusta Brutale 1000RR…

The most beautiful and powerful Brutale ever, in its best livery and premium RR outfitting.

The Brutale RR in the Matt Hedonist Red/Matt Metallic Carbon Black colour scheme is the rightful heir, for elegance and aggressiveness, of the first Brutale 1000. The grit of the version in (Matt Metallic Carbon Black/Matt Metallic Dark Grey) with a stroke of Magma Red to seal a unique design is impressive. Armed with 208 HP of power for a kerb weight of just 198 kg, the Brutale RR is the naked bike to beat.

The motorcycles in the MV Agusta range have explicit names that need no further explanation. And so, since 2001, simply uttering the word Brutale is enough to understand that you are talking about a model with very few filters that conveys exuberance from every angle, whether standing still or in action. A hyper-naked in constant evolution with the goal of meeting the needs of a public that will not settle simply for an item to put on display, but which is constantly in search of riding dynamics that leave the rider with memorable experiences and doing so in an increasingly more accurate way.

For 2023, the 1000 RR and RS in the Brutale family are getting upgrades, more in substance than in looks. While the style still maintains the tried and true balance between an aggressive front end and rear end, as well as unmistakeable traits, 23 significant upgrades distributed among the engine, the chassis, and the electronics make the difference. The goal of these elements is to make the integration even clearer between the rider and a bike that has gained popularity from its very beginnings because of its easy and intuitive approach. This result is certainly not an easy one to achieve when we are talking about a bike that has 208 HP distributed in an extremely linear manner.

On a mechanical level, the most significant element introduced to the crankcase of the inline-four cylinder engine is the balanceshaft, which will characterise both versions of the Brutale. Next year, the RR and RS will once again share engine and frame, with the RR characterised by racing-inspired carbon fibre technical and aesthetic details and high-end suspension components, which includes, among other things, TiN surface treatment of the Öhlins Nix 43 forks balanceshaft on the RR, Marzocchi with DLC surface treatment on the RS. The counter-rotating crankshaft in the modified crankcase turns at twice the speed of the crankshaft with noticeable effects on high-frequency secondary vibrations, with values dropping 54%.

Less vibration means real benefits in terms of comfort in the saddle, handlebars, and footpeg areas, but also in the mirrors, which now ensure even clearer visibility. Significantly less vibration also provides indirect advantages in terms of riding dynamics in the form of more precise cornering and the reliability of the Brutale’s sophisticated electronics. In fact, more than 80 electronic components handle the various functions, and eliminating high-frequency vibrations decreases the risk of damaging the connections and components.

The engine, which maintains its status as the most powerful for a naked bike, still houses all of the technical details that make it unique, starting with the titanium radial valves, an MV Agusta exclusive, joined by other elements that make the difference, such as the forged titanium connecting rods and all the solutions that have evolved to the point of drastically reducing internal friction.

With the 2023 model year, a new saddle also makes its début, keeping its familiar shape but introducing dual- density padding, the purpose of which is to increase comfort aid in maintaining the ideal riding position.

The constant evolution of the Brutale family also includes an update in engine management and control features. The first innovation focuses on the incorporation of an advanced electronic throttle complete with a negative rotation. This provides more natural feeling and eliminates the on-off effect. This also has the advantage of making deceleration much more gradual when deactivating cruise control. In fact, the negative throttle rotation prevents the abrupt drop that occurs when engaging the brakes or the clutch to deactivate the set cruising speed.

When it comes to electronics, MV Agusta has continuously been an innovator introducing the latest control and safety technologies. This path has consistently set us apart from our competitors in terms of advanced dynamic controls. For 2023, the Brutale models have been upgraded in terms of torque, traction, and launch control management, with the goal of transmitting emotions to the rider unequalled by all our rivals.

The development of the Front Lift Control remains faithful to our philosophy of innovation. This feature fully controls wheelies with an advanced algorithm and inertia control platform. The algorithm is designed to maintain maximum acceleration without any abrupt power reduction to maintaining the wheelie. The inertial platform makes it possible to control the pitch angle to maximize acceleration, performance and safety. The FLC feature together with Launch Control (LC) are included the most advanced riders aids package in the hypernaked category.

For MV Agusta, 2023 marks a true turning point in the name of evolution and technology. The R package makes its début on all the three-cylinder bikes: Brutale, Dragster, F3, and Turismo Veloce flaunt new colours and lots of new features. The new range of three and four cylinder bikes, even more complete and exclusive, finalizes an exceptional development path which has produced astonishing results, particularly in terms of riding thrills.

There are plenty of upgrades for the four-cylinder range comprising Brutale RS, Brutale RR, and Rush.

 

Engine

The engine has been updated with the arrival of the countershaft unit which allows a 54% reduction of the second order vibrations, all to the advantage of comfort and reliability. The valve tappets, like on the three-cylinder engines, have DLC treatment to reduce internal friction and improve performance. The profile of the cams has been revamped to optimise torque availability. The radial valves are made of titanium.

 

Ride-By-Wire

On all the four-cylinder bikes, the new electronic Ride-by-Wire throttle control with 6° negative rotation drastically improves the feeling of the throttle, making control of the bike more intuitive and immediate. Credit also goes to the new control algorithms. further refined to provide a response worthy of a supersport bike, but without being too abrupt. In the new configuration, the throttle control, along with the new control management, allows cruise control to be deactivated simply by closing the throttle, whereas braking was previously required.

 

Electronics

The instrumentation, focused on the 5.5” TFT panel, also benefits from an overall improvement thanks to the software upgrade, also to the advantage of the connectivity features. The Mobisat anti-theft system with geolocalisation lets you sleep more peacefully at night. As do the inertial platform and the Continental Cornering ABS, both upgraded to provide the utmost in safety.

DESIGN. NEC PLUS NAKED
Brutale is reconfirmed as the king of hypernaked bikes. From the first model to today, its leadership has been centred on design, engine power and riding experience. Today, the new Brutale 1000 RR is once again at the top thanks to the absolute quality of the components, the advanced engine and benchmark electronics.

FEEL THE POWER OF SOUND

The exceptional power of 208 horses has been made even more exciting thanks to the new camshaft timing, which optimises the torque curve at medium/low rpm. Efficiency has been improved thanks to the new transmission gears, reducing friction. The transmission has been strengthened, and the exhaust features a new main manifold, which makes the sound of the exhaust even more exciting.

USE YOUR INSTINCTS
Thanks to the new inertial platform, traction and wheelie controls are even more effective and precise, which improves safety but also with the utmost attention to obtaining the best possible performance, as you would expect from an uncompromising hypernaked. The EAS 3.0 electronic gearbox is more precise and smoother when shifting.

SCI-FI TECH
The use of titanium for the connecting rods and for the intake and exhaust valves is an indication of the high quality that characterises the Brutale project, which from the very beginning blazed a trail of technology, style and performance. The rider interface is also a point of excellence, thanks to the 5.5” TFT panel, the multifunction electrical controls and the MV Ride App, which allows you to set numerous electronics and engine parameters directly from your smartphone.

SAFETY
The introduction of Continental ABS with cornering function is the culmination of a constant evolution aimed at improving rider and passenger safety. The braking system is number one in terms of power and ease of handling, thanks to the wide diameter discs, Brembo Stylema calipers and the radial pump for handlebar control. To improve ergonomics, the saddle has been redesigned, while the footrests are now forged.
