2010 MV Agusta Brutale First Ride

MV’s new MV Agusta Brutale 1090RR not look very different to the old but believe us when we say it’s a It’s 85% new, boasts a power map, an eight-stage control system and is 4kg (8.8 lighter than the out-going But most importantly it’s friendlier and easier to ride ever before, and still like stink.

Don’t a book by its cover. MV’s new may look similar to the old one, but vastly different.

The new Brutale and 990R (see sidebar) are the new MV Agustas to appear after a of Harley-Davidson ownership. They’re the of a new generation of bikes to roll out of the gates in Varase, Italy. If the 1090RR is anything to go by, MV’s new models, including the new F4 superbike, will be unveiled in just three weeks, should be

Judging by the confident swagger of the MV at the launch here at Misano and the grin on designer Adrian face, there’s a real inside MV Agusta at the moment. At last it looks as if MV could be back at its decadent best.

The old lived up to its name. From the 2001-model 750, all the way to the out-going MV’s beautiful super was always an in-your-face aggressive Everything from the course engine note to the uncompromising suspension, brutal acceleration and 160mph-plus top speed, screamed

It was a riot to ride for a few hours but too extreme to live with the thrill of non-stop wheelies, knee-down and skids had worn As much as we loved its naughty it was simply too cramped, vibey, and uncompromising. Things have

The 1090RR, which we estimate cost around £14,000 it goes on sale at the end of the year is the MV Agusta I’ve ridden I could keep going all In fact here at Misano’s MotoGP racetrack, I had to be levered off the when it was time to go home.

out of the box, the new Brutale 1090RR is a track day weapon.

On the circuit the is magical, and straight out of the crate no modifications it’s a devastating tool and would shame production bikes, with or a fairing.

The engine, which is 1078cc, confusingly, is revvy, packed with low and mid-range and a howling top-end rush. far more refined now, and doesn’t sound like a bag of when you start it up. On the throttle the delivery is smooth and predictable, and off it the issue slipper clutch the MV glide into corners upsetting the chassis.

It has impeccable stability on the straights to a 20mm longer swingarm and a lazier rake and trail, so so I didn’t need to fiddle the Brutale’s new adjustable radial damper. The ride quality is too and has the kind of plush, controllable action you’ll only with top quality racing

Best of all is the Brutale’s new layout. The might look the same as the old one but the is roomier and the big 23-liter (6-gallon) is shaped differently, which you’re no longer locked-in and to move. There’s loads of to climb over the bike in the and to hold yourself in under even for a six-footer.

This new layout lets you enjoy the far more and makes it less to ride fast. This to move, coupled with the handling, acres of ground storming power, grip the Dunlop Qualifier RR tires and Brembo monoblocs, which the MV with the same kind of as it accelerates, and sticky Dunlop RR tires stick makes a very easy bike to very fast.

It made as easy to navigate as a computer with as little effort, and on the it continues to impress. While it has the power to clutch up a wheelie in gear if you want, it’s civilized, so much so that got

quite a lot of Honda it. I cringed when I told one of the riders it felt like a Hornet, expecting him to spit out is incredulously, but he actually smiled and “This is what we wanted to We actually had a Honda Hornet for when we were developing bike.”

You notice the extra the instant you jump on and for normal the 1090RR is comfortable, the ride excellent and the power smooth. The grunt of the engine lets you around in sixth gear all day if you so but if you want to thrash through the the redesigned selector now has a longer, comfortable throw.

The dash is new a gear position indicator, is always useful, and for low-grip you can change from the ‘sport’ to power map, which off the bottom-end power. Peak is still the same.

As for the traction which works by looking at revs and doesn’t have sensors (like we mistakenly in last week’s MCN) the Ducati Streetfighter S. I tried it on and off and to be honest I never felt it in on the track or riding the slippery, tarmac roads nearby. you can feel it working, like the apparent rev-limiter style on the Ducati. Maybe it’s too refined I never noticed it me out, I certainly didn’t a slide all day.

The Brutale is Honda-like in its refinement, and friendliness for the first time and to hold on to its scintillating performance, a real shame MV didn’t the styling on a bit though.

Compared to its rival, the Ducati Streetfighter S, I’d say even better built, stable and race bike-like on the but not as nimble or quite as much fun on the Weighing 190kg (419 the MV is still quite a heavy

Best of all is what the brilliant new means for the next generation of like the F4 superbike. While the are sleeping next year no radical new sportbikes to speak of MV looks like they be the stars of 2010.

The Brutale’s clutch means no slipping and no of the chassis prior to entering

The 142 hp Inline-Four 1078cc engine has the basic layout and capacity as the old It’s around 3 hp down on year’s bike, due to restrictions in the for noise and emissions.

The motor is 2.5kg (5.5 lighter and has a slipper clutch. It has a new starter and generator assembly, gearshift with a longer water pump, oil pump, oil pick-up, fuel pump, shaft and exhaust.

Fuel and electronics

The 1090RR has new, Mikuni throttle bodies and a new Marelli engine management including eight position control and a two power maps.

New instruments have a multi-function including a gear position and a readout showing the traction and engine map position.

Brutale 990R

Replacing the old 989R, the new 139 hp 990R, which we will cost around has a sleeved down version of the engine. It’s slightly spec, so has non-adjustable footpegs, durable Pirelli Diablo tires, forged aluminum no steering damper or slipper but still has the two-way engine map and position traction control.

its big brother, the 990R is more roomier and easier to ride before, and still has more enough power to keep you on road and track. The fuelling and quality aren’t quite as as the more expensive 1090RR but things are only noticeable if you the bikes back-to-back. On its own it’s a cracker.
