September 28, 2009 – With 15,400 MV Agusta Brutale models sold worldwide, through a decade boasting countless international design awards and accolades, MV Agusta proudly introduces the new Brutale 990R and 1090RR for 2010.

Conceived at MV Agusta’s CRC design center, the highly-anticipated launch of the brand new Brutale models signifies a new renaissance for the distinguished Italian brand, known for its success crafting high-performance, beautifully designed motorcycles.

With U.S. prices set at $15,000 for the Brutale 990R and $18,000 for the Brutale 1090RR, MV Agusta is currently unveiling the new 2010 bikes for the first time at the famed Misano Autodromo circuit in Italy.

Completely reengineered in every facet of its design with only the newest components featuring the latest technology, MV Agusta produced a brand new Brutale 990R and 1090 RR which still capture the aggressive, legendary aesthetic of its predecessor.

Made in the world famous spirit of MV Agusta, the company ensured every aspect of the design and production for the new Brutale was overseen in-house.

Using the knowledge gained from a winning tradition of racing excellence with 38 world championship titles and 37 manufacturers’ championships alongside motorcycle icon Giacomo Agostini, MV Agusta focused on producing the most versatile Brutale to date, with all the track-ready power of previous models, but with revolutionary attention brought to comfort and ease of riding at any speed.

“With the unveiling of the new Brutale 990R and 1090RR, MV Agusta looks forward to once again showing the world why the company continues to be one of the most respected names in the motorcycle industry,” comments MV Agusta Director of U.S. Operations, Larry Ferracci.

“The launch of the new Brutale models marks a revolution for the MV Agusta brand as it moves forward producing motorcycles echoing the spirit of its Italian heritage while also demonstrating the highest quality of manufacturing.

Founded in Italy in 1945, MV Agusta has created some of the most exquisite, sought-after motorcycles in the world, renowned for their attention to detail, superior craftsmanship, and provocative design. MV Agusta boasts an unprecedented 75 Championship titles securing its place in the annals of motorsport legend.

Brutale 990 R: Identity Transformed

Almost a decade has passed since the appearance of the first Brutale, a prestigious, naked motorcycle with fascinating design, power, and speed. Its characteristics, unique and unmistakable, have made it famous the world over, enabling it to win coveted prizes as the most beautiful motorcycle of the year.

The Brutale pushes the limits of research and technology in its 2010 models — the 990R and the 1090RR. With its state-of-the-art components, the 2010 Brutale delivers acclaimed performance and ease of riding, in keeping with the “Made in MV” formula: a commitment to excellence in componentry, in the design of which MV Agusta is at the forefront.

The “easy” handling enable the Brutale to compete with the Japanese bikes; it is agile and instinctive in the hands of the rider. It excels on the racetrack, and its eclectic elegance and charm thrill even the casual admirer.

To achieve these results, it was necessary to replace 85% of the components, but the new Brutale has preserved the significant style features of previous versions. The work carried out on the 990R and 1090RR cannot be defined as mere restyling; rather, it is a silent MV Agusta revolution.

There is little left of the old Brutale model. From the aesthetics, to the engine, to the rolling chassis, no component can be interchanged with those of the previous versions.

MV Agusta Brutale: A Brief History

Created in 2001 with a 750 engine, the Brutale instantly stirred motorcyclists, who were enthusiastic, but also insatiable, to the extent that MV immediately pushed on towards more extreme limits in search of absolute performance.

The first change came in 2003; the 910S gained 12 hp over the 750, with its 139 horsepower, and a torque of almost 73 ft-lb which, with the increase of 160 cc, completed the job. The R version was even more powerful — 144 hp with racing exhausts; a professional rolling chassis that included radial brakes, forged rims and TiN-treated front forks; and an engine capable of reaching speeds of 163 mph.

The second evolution took place in 2007: the engine was made even larger, the 910S became the 989R, and the meanest model was named the 1078RR. These demonstrated incredible power, 142 and 147 hp respectively, with torque varying between 74 ft-lb and 84 ft-lb, and a top speed of around 167 mph.

Each model had a different rolling chassis, with the “professional” version boasting enhanced performance. Throughout the years, the face of the Brutale never changed expression; it only flexed its muscles to be stronger and more athletic, always coming in two versions, the basic and the sport.

In its career, it donned elite dress for limited editions. The “Serie Oro” (“Gold Series”) was the first to make its debut, which was an all red 750 special with a limited production number of only 300 units worldwide. The Serie Oro was presented along side the first standard model of the MV Brutale.

After the Italian win in the 2006 World Cup, the “Italy” version was launched, a replica for motorcycle enthusiasts and collectors of the limited edition Brutale that MV Agusta President Claudio Castiglioni wanted to give to each player on the Italian team. Only 124 units were made, all light blue, with the proud inscription “Champions of the World.”

More recent times have seen the “Hydrogen” (100 units), created in the partnership with the clothing company of the same name, which can be purchased from MV Agusta dealers as well as from the luxurious boutiques of this prestigious name in fashion.

The latest creation is the “Wally,” resulting from a co-branding with Monte Carlo based Wally, the largest manufacturer of yachts. Only 118 units were made, signifying the 118-foot length of the extraordinary motor boat that has become an international icon among luxury watercraft.
