Massimo Tamburini’s … lives on. Short for Massimo in is Max and this 1078RR Brutale is maxed out in most ways. One of the powerful engines, the best and the best design comes as never before!

Words: Tor Alberto Cervetti

4.000 rpm on a half throttle and the front ploughs controllably sky-high. impressive stuff when max is still further away at and max horsepower at 10.700rpm.

Yes, we seen the chassis before and the overall design. New is the addition of one of the powerful in-line four in the world and with it the most standard Monoblocks from

The 1078RR takes off and increases in in a way that only the Suzuki and Triumph Rocket III can rival. of torque is less than bikes mentioned, but not when you the power to weight ratio as the only weighs in at 185 kilograms. to the Brutale 910 the 1078RR has two teeth on the rear sprocket but still like mad from low rpm.

Add two again on the 1078RR and you’ll a genuine handful as it’ll everywhere.

I have started the engine here as it leaves a impression. The 1078 was presented in the super exclusive F4 CC last For 2008 both the Brutale and the standard (it’s nowhere standard, but for the sake of this F4 1078 RR312 got the 1078.34cc four engine.

The F4 version produces an astronomical 190 Believe it or not, but such an requires very clever work to detune for a motorcycle the Brutale. One of the main differences are the that the Brutale 1078RR the old F4 1000 R’s 46mm throttle (48mm on the F4 RR312).

Then the of a smaller air box and a different exhaust The end result is a whopping 154 horsepower at rpm. MV Agusta claims all is enough for a true 166mph top on a ……

But never mind the top it’s the way that the 1078RR there which is impressive. The old 910 replaced with the 989R) have a perfect throttle and Marco, my guide for the day and also in of testing the 1078RR for MV, have very hard on subtle to allow the rider to control beast. The throttle response is linear and with such a dollop of torque available as low as 4.000rpm you need all the control you can

Whilst a lot of new bikes these have very nice curves that disguise the nature of the real acceleration, the 1078RR feels like a motorcycle with the engine of a train. In many ways overkill, you don’t need all horsepower in a …. But at the same I absolutely love riding it and a motorcycle that makes you joyfully inside your when the rpm needle rises and quicker around the tachometer.

The B-King might get the upper in a drag race due to the fact it can keep its front wheel planted to the tarmac in the three gears, but for thrills and the feel of raw the Brutale 1078RR wins down.

The clutch on the 1078RR is heavy to operate. In town I this in my left wrist. To the need for clutch at low speed I second or even third at very low speed. Because the 1078RR responds beautifully low rpm and the torque curve again works like there is gigantic magnetic field in of me. For fast downshifts MV Agusta added a slipper clutch.

Without the slipper clutch I dare imagine how this compression engine (13:1) react in a 4 th gear to 2 nd gear The six-speed gearbox is a cassette box. Through town also worthwhile to mention the 1078cc engine runs hot. I could see 130 degrees being indicated in the instrument and the fan runs at full speed of the time in town.

Luckily for us, the MV fan doesn’t produce as much as on let’s say a Buell so I can live this and the assurance that not dangerous for the engine. As long as you can it shouldn’t be a problem though.

The position is upright and surprisingly The 805mm seat height the rider in control and the stretch to the is very civilised. All you can see in front of you is the shaped instrument panel. some detail changes, the panel is perhaps the one item on the Brutale that looks dated.

Compared to the rest of the the plastic looks a bit on the cheap The digital speedometer features a readout like on a calculator the 80’s and we’re sure is one of the items set for a redesign the next around. The analogue tachometer is as pleasing to the eye as it ever was.

The foot controls are annoyingly and I have to angle my toes to use them. Particularly the brake is a bit of a pain for me to use with my Alpinestars R’s. The gear box foot is also not ideally adjusted for me, but on the side it’s more of an issue than length.

I more play basically and would have worked on the gearing side of things the box itself is very good.

say you’re in sixth gear at doing 166 MPH on the Brutale down the straight. That’s when new Brembo Monoblock radial would come in handy. are supremely strong but at the same not too sharp and the feel with the wheel are great. The tyres to the Brembo five spoke are Pirelli Supercorsa Pro (120/70-ZR17 and 190/55-ZR17 rear).

They like glue to the tarmac and the powerful 1078RR perfectly.

The front suspension is a fully (all at the steering head end of the 50mm USD Marzocchi fork an increased 130mm of travel. set-up ensures a very ride and with the extra up front you don’t have to about landing those too hard either. The massive power from the Brembo combined with this enables more control that power under braking.

At the back we find the Sachs fully adjustable set-up.


First the Monster, then came The Brutale have been shamelessly by the Japanese several t Think Suzuki GSR600 and FZ’s in particular.

In its 8 year it has won design awards everywhere and the themselves have voted the the most beautiful motorcycle times. A … motorcycle is one of the difficult types of design beauty is concerned. You can’t anything anywhere, so the concept has to be through from the initial development.

MV Agusta with has succeeded better than else with the Brutale. The is irresistible because of that and that fantastic new 154hp Downsides are the fact that engine vibrates a little bit than a Japanese design, more heat, the clutch is a tad and the foot controls are a little

That’s it though and it wouldn’t me from buying one. The probably would though.

-A and thoroughly thought through 8 years later and it’s as irresistible as ever.

The 1078RR is as exciting and powerful as they

Great Brembo Monoblock power

Even with 154 the handling is sophisticated

-Exclusivity only MV Agusta can offer. a bike designed by a living
