2012 MV Agusta 989RR Review


The Brutale is the result of never-ending by MV engineers seeking to make and satisfy the demands of MV riders. The stands for vanity and power. To such a spectacularly beautiful motorcycle calls for great to be paid to even the very detail. When a man buys a it can be given a nip here and a tuck to disguise any imperfections he may have.

The can certainly not be said for a … man or bike where nothing can be The only clothes a Brutale has are its and side panels. The rest is The very essence of MV Agusta as a dictates that appearances are overlooked for functionality. They always sought to create lines between the handlebars, exhausts, saddle, wheels and that, in this case, the -Brutale- looks with its and performance.

So, after the 750 and 910 cc models, it was time to breathe some new into the machine with in cubic capacity, torque and output. Other changes slight tweaks and the addition of an Capacity went from 909 to 982 cc the engine close to the performance of a one liter machine and it once left the competition floundering in its

We believe that the Brutale is the only motorbike currently at an affordable price and that it has a of -pull- that is unmatched in the world. It has a soul that out not only for accomplished riders but also wants to be treated tenderness and aggression at the same someone able to tame the of the new engine. Machines like the 989R need a long

By their nature they are enough to believe that are the be all and end all of the evolutionary process of motorcycling. The is not just a motorbike, it is a symbol, it is and, it is a reason to be.

The is unique in both its concept and in the it exudes. It is not just a question of but also of the love for a motorbike should never be just a collection of technical elements. has to be passion, brilliance and love. an Italian company like MV could create such a It is the details that make all the on a -…-.

The instrument panel have new graphics to highlight the new image. It is the engineering components more than any other redefine the look of the machine and the -Brutale effect- i.e. and performance. To achieve this, have been taken the MV Agusta racing department.


Work on equipping and the Brutale 989R limits the of radical new technical solutions and the new package- consists of the following:

and color schemes

Instrument graphics

Revised suspension

989 cc engine

Resized catalysers

radial brakes

The number of made to transform the Brutale to the 989R were inversely Changes to the ride have the Brutale seem like a bike altogether.

982cc FOR 165MPH

Nine hundred and ten ccs enough it would seem for riders. They wanted pull, more torque, horsepower. They wanted and that was that.

With its new 982 cc the Brutale will sate the This isn-t so much a of seeking maximum performance as of four cylinders to work to offer a perfectly balanced This is no easy feat you-re dealing with 141 HP into a small compact like the one on the Brutale. Bore and now measure 79 and 50.1 mm.

The pistons are the as those on the 1,078 cc version and the ratio has been lowered to Euro 3 homologation requirements. The however has been achieved in a way so as to soften the surge when really kicks in. Another is that with the engine in its new the pull offered by as muscular an as the one in the new 989R means that compression is needed and it leaves the 910 in terms of response and range.

The graphics confirm this All the technical development work on obtaining a smoother response to the to thus offer an easier especially in the stop/start traffic we see in areas. The bigger catalyser played an essential role in issue. It has meant more to maneuver with emissions and allowed a richer mix.

The of new throttle bodies inherited the F4 R -06 involved making the final ratio longer by using two less and the ratio now reads as opposed to 15/43. This has elongated the overall gearing and as a the top speed has increased by between 3 and 6 mph previous figures to take the 989R up to 165 mph flat out.


the chrome-molybdenum trellis frame was a choice for MV. The trellis frame is than merely aesthetically it capably handles the reconfigured power output and last of is easy to work on when so In the first versions of the Brutale, the was designed to bear theoretical and flexing parameters greater those it would in fact to handle. This was because we that eventually we would where we are today.

Therefore no changes needed. The geometry is the as are the other settings as proof of the that we knew right the start where we would The rake is 101.5 mm (3.99 the wheelbase measures 1,410 mm in) and the maximum overall length is mm (79.52 in) for an overall weight of 185 (407.8 lb).

The classic single rear sets the scene and is a symbol of and originality. It is a perfect example of art on two not to mention its performance. All of MV-s experience has gone into this bike compact, and superbly rideable.


The addition of new brakes and the increased output of the 989 cc engine have making changes to the front The ends now have lugs to radial mounted calipers internal calibration has been to handle the increased loads the will have to deal Great care has been to ensure that none of the that a bike like the 989R provides its rider is

For this reason, the type of remains unchanged and the Brutale a pair of upside down 50 mm to keep the front end glued to the when the rider is using the with a certain degree of Travel has been extended 126 to 130 mm (4.96 — 5.11 in) to a better response over surfaces.

The rear shock remains unchanged. The new calibration match the bike-s performance and can instantly to the heavy compression the is subjected to under the hard that the bike provides to increased torque from the engine.


The new is now even more Italian new Brembo brakes. The new system on the features 32mm radial with four-piston calipers. The stopping power is offset by usability on the road and therefore overall performance.
