MV Agusta reveals 2021 Brutale 1000 RR naked superbike
Italian automaker MV Agusta has unveiled the 2021 iteration of its Brutale 1000 RR. It is priced starting at €32,300 (roughly Rs. 28.67 lakh). As for the key highlights, the vehicle comes with a sporty styling, new sintered valve guides on the Euro 5-compliant engine, enhanced riding aids, a Brembo braking system, and several carbon fiber body components. Here's our roundup.
The new MV Agusta Brutale 1000 RR sits on a CrMo steel tubular trellis frame, and features carbon fiber and thermoplastic material for fairing, a chiseled fuel tank, a split-style seat, and twin exhaust tips on both the sides. It packs a 5.0-inch TFT screen with support for GPS and a built-in Mobistat tracker. The bike weighs 186kg and rides on 17-inch alloy wheels.
The 2021 MV Agusta Brutale 1000 RR runs on a Euro 5-compliant 998cc, 16-valve, in-line 4-cylinder engine that produces 205hp of power at 13,000rpm and 116.5Nm of peak torque at 11,000rpm. The mill is also fitted with new sintered valve guides and DLC-coated tappets. The superbike has a top-speed of 300km/h and offers a 6-speed gearbox with electronically assisted bi-directional quickshifter.
For the rider's safety, the 2021 MV Agusta Brutale 1000 RR is equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels, along with cornering ABS, a new inertial measurement unit, switchable 8-level traction control, and wheelie control. Suspension duties are taken care of by Ohlins 43mm front forks and a progressive Ohlins EC TTX mono-shock unit on the rear end.
The 2021 MV Agusta Brutale 1000 RR carries a starting price-tag of €32,300 (roughly Rs. 28.67 lakh). The bike is unlikely to arrive in India considering the brand has ceased to operate in the country after failed collaboration with Kinetic Group's MotoRoyale.
