2008 MV Agusta Brutale 1078 RR, 154hp!
MV Agusta have with the 1078 RR fulfilled many people's dream of an ultimate and really brutal Brutale. It boasts 154 horsepower @ 10.700rpm and a massive 117Nm of torque @ 8.100rpm. New gearing allows a higher topspeed, but with the extra cubes it's the extra torque that will be noticeable first. the Brutale 1078RR keeps the same chassis and suspension as before, but with modified internals and radial mounting for the new Brembo Monoblock radial callipers. Big news are also that the engine braking system has been replaced by MV's latest slipper clutch. The catalyser have now been resized to enable an easier process through emissions. Dry weight: 185kg
2008 MV Agusta Brutale 989R
The Brutale 989R replaces the 910, but don't be fooled by the name. The real displacement is 982cc, but 989R sounds nicer! the Brutale still remains the same as it has always been. Beauty in a naked chassis is not that easy and MV Agusta and Massimo Tamburini are closest to achieving this of all. The chassis remains the same as MV Agusta developed it for a big displacement bike in the first place, but the front suspension have been tweaked and in place are now radial Brembo callipers rather than the long-lived six-pot Nissins. New throttle bodies from the F4 enabled MV Agusta to reduce the number of teeth on the rear sprocket to enable a claimed topspeed of 165mph. Dry weight: 185kg. Bore x stroke:79x50.1- 141hp. Pictures coming very soon...
