2023 MV Agusta Brutale R: ACTION PACKED EXCITEMENT.

Introducing the 2023 MV Agusta Brutale R…

URBAN ESSENTIAL

A unique, unforgettable take on this iconic naked bike

The Brutale R makes its début packed with plenty of refinements: fork and mono shock with new adjustment, Continental MK100 ABS with optimised calibration, a new rider saddle, 5.5” TFT instrumentation with updated software, new electronic Ride-By-Wire throttle control featuring negative rotation, and valve tappets with DLC coating that reduces friction and improves efficiency.

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.

Ride by Wire

The electronic throttle control has been entirely redesigned to make using it even more intuitive and gradual, without sacrificing the responsive action that is an absolute must for a sport bike throttle control. The new double return spring and especially the 6° negative rotation simplify throttle management and allow the cruise control to be deactivated without braking: simply close the throttle. The negative rotation also reduces the risk of involuntary engagement when the road surface is particularly bumpy, all to the advantage of comfort. At the same time, the operating algorithms have been upgraded for a superior riding feeling.

 

Improved ergonomics and interface

A new rider’s seat has been introduced on the Brutale R and Brutale RR, whereas the saddle on the Dragster R and Dragster RR has been changed entirely. Thanks to new development and design tools, as well as the use of 3D Mesh materials, comfort has increased drastically. To make any trip, from a city commute to a long trip on the weekend, a pleasant and comfortable adventure.

The instrumentation focused on the 5.5” TFT panel is one of the main interface points between rider and bike. For 2023, the software is updated and evolved to provide greater ease of use, in addition to the advanced connectivity, with navigation Turn-by-Turn, platform that has been further improved. The equipment includes the Mobisat geolocalised anti-theft system (with the exception of Dragster R and Turismo Veloce R).

 

New braking system

The constant development path – one of MV Agusta’s fundamental values – also focused on the braking system. Brembo M4.32 monobloc front callipers come standard on the Brutale RR and the Dragster RR. The higher level of stiffness of the callipers improves both modular operation and power, also achieving a significant reduction in weight to the tune of 200 grams. On the F3 R, the F3 RR, the Superveloce, and the Superveloce S, the front callipers are Brembo Stylema M4.30 with Brembo PR 16/19 radial master cylinder. Overall, the new equipment increases braking power and reduces the weight by a full 300 grams.

Rear brake modular operation has been improved on the entire 3-cylinder range thanks to upgrades to the hydraulic circuit, increasing the hydrostatic pressure in the system. The result? Improved feeling during use.

Tyres and ABS
Introducing new OEM tyres, respectively Pirelli Diablo Rosso IV and Diablo Rosso Corsa IV. The Continental MK100 ABS has also been upgraded, with refinements made to the cornering feature in order to provide an even more precise and safer response in all conditions.

 

THE R FAMILY, THE GATEWAY TO THE MV AGUSTA WORLD

The new R family, which replaces the Rosso, was conceived as an entry-level offer to the MV Agusta world. The greater availability of colour schemes, focused on red and black in various combination, is just one of the new features for the Brutale R, Dragster R, F3 R, and Turismo Veloce R model.

The Brutale R makes its début packed with plenty of refinements: fork and mono shock with new adjustment, Continental MK100 ABS with optimised calibration, a new rider saddle, 5.5” TFT instrumentation with updated software, new electronic Ride-By-Wire throttle control featuring negative rotation, and valve tappets with DLC coating that reduces friction and improves efficiency.

For 2023, the Dragster R has new Pirelli Diablo Rosso IV tyres, a more modular rear brake, fork and mono shock with new adjustment, Continental MK100 ABS with optimised calibration, a new saddle, 5.5” colour TFT instrumentation with updated software, new electronic Ride-By-Wire throttle control featuring negative rotation, and valve tappets with DLC coating.

The sporty F3 R joins the 2023 range with new graphics and the glossy Ago Red colour scheme. A new Full LED front light cluster makes its début, complete with DRL and a pair of futuristic headlamps for low and high beam. The LED turn indicators have been redesigned and inserted in rear view mirrors that are also brand new. The rear turn indicators are now LED. The fork has a TIN coating, whereas the OEM tyres are Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa IV. All the improvements already offered on the other models are confirmed here as well, specifically the redesigned Ride-By-Wire system featuring negative rotation to favour throttle modulation and deactivating cruise control without braking. The braking features new equipment in the form of Brembo M4.30 Stylema front callipers.

The Turismo Veloce R is available in matt black (Metallic Carbon Black) and in the classic red and black combination (Metallic Madness Red Gloss and Metallic Carbon Black Gloss). The rider saddle has been lowered to make it even easier to reach the ground and comfort has increased thanks in part to the wider windscreen and the longer gear ratios.

 

 

 

2023 MV Agusta Brutale R Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

ENGINE
• COUNTER-ROTATING CRANKSHAFT
• CAM FOLLOWERS WITH DLC COATING TO REDUCE INTERNAL FRICTION AND IMPROVE PERFORMANCE
• OPTIMISED CRANKSHAFT MAIN BEARINGS, CONNECTING ROD BEARINGS AND COUNTERSHAFT BEARINGS TO REDUCE FRICTION AND INCREASE RELIABILITY
• OPTIMISED CLUTCH BASKET FOR SMOOTHER ENGAGEMENT

DESIGN. EVERY DETAIL COUNTS
The hallmark of the Rosso Range is, of course, its distinctive colouring: red, the ultimate racing colour, provides the crowning glory to its design. The differences from the standard set-up are subtle, like the surface milling on the profile of the wheel spokes, for example.

FEEL THE POWER OF SOUND

The in-line three-cylinder engine deriving from the F3 800 excels in terms of its performance, output range, weight and record-breaking measurements. With 110 HP and a torque of 83 Nm, the bike’s full potential can be unleashed instantly and easily, on every type of track.

FREEDOM AND CONTROL
Eight levels of traction control and four riding modes: Sport, Race, Rain and Custom. The different sides of an engine bursting with confidence can be selected via joystick, for maximum enjoyment in every driving situation.

HI-TECH FOR EVERYBODY
The Rosso Range shares the same technical solutions as other MV models, such as the MotoGP-derived counter-rotating crankshaft and the removable gearbox. The structure has been revamped, thanks to a new progressive linkage rear as well as the new and improved-comfort saddle.

QUALITY BRAKING SYSTEM
Power and scalability. Mission accomplished, thanks to the high-performing system on the front end boasting a pair of four-piston Brembo radial calipers. The new Continental ABS with cornering function improves performance and safety, even around curves.
