MV Agusta Brutale 920

MV Agusta is the most exotic name in

The company`s glorious and astonishing history from the 1950s to the 1970s has now been surpassed by while Ducati holds the top as sporting Italian brand. MV ceased to be for more than a until the name was revived by the Group and the first new bike in 1997.

Yet there`s still a in the name MV Agusta. This is due to the of the man responsible for bringing MV back, Castiglioni (also responsible for Ducati back in 1984) who up with design great Tamburini to create arguably the beautiful motorcycle ever the F4. The F4 evolved from 750 to one litre, power, electronics and for 2010, a and hugely successful restyle by designer Adrian Morton.

The same happened to the F4 spin-off, the a … version substituting and beauty for muscle and as the name brutishness. For 2011, a new version has which has the honour of offering the price of any MV Agusta, £1 less £10,000.

The 921cc engine plenty with the rest of four-cylinder family, including the … which combines a smaller bore size to the reduced capacity. The cooling is revised too, as is the engine system, which offers two Sport and Normal. You also get traction control system, and the chassis is mostly the same as the of the Brutale range (1090RR and the 920 gets new, softer to suit its entry level

This proves to be one of the bike`s few spots. Using MV`s road settings the front of the is fairly soft but manageable, the rear is desperately underdamped, and wallowing badly at speed. facility to change only the damping and not the compression, so I adjusted to MV`s suggested track and this improved the behaviour a although even then it firming up a little more.

the suspension is sorted (and the do make a useful difference, isn`t always the case) the handles fine, although it can to feel a little harsh it`s firm enough for cornering. You wouldn`t call it suspension but it does lack the and quality of the costlier Brutale

The bike`s quite heavy a legacy of the age of the basic design, but still agile enough for riders and it has a solid, substantial that inspires plenty of It holds its line well when diving into at speed and matches this excellent low speed steering and although there`s a lot of dive the front end when the radial brakes are used in anger.

most likely to seduce with its engine, which its reduced size and relatively 137bhp still manages to It`s surprisingly torquey, strongly and smoothly from the reaches of the rev range, then hard with its mid range. less willing to rev than the but it`s still pretty when spun to its 10.500rpm peak, though the additional available above that can a little laboured.

What it also brings is a snarl that distinguishes it Japanese fours, and a delicious idle. In Sport mode the response is sharp, although it can be too from a closed throttle. mode smoothes this out and is for town work as the power is to control generally. Fuel not too bad, at 39mpg used hard and rising to 44mpg in riding.

Combine that the 5.1 gallon (23 litre) tank and you a very useful range of at 200 miles.

Comfort is up to making full use of with a supportive seat also works well for the although the footrests are high to ground clearance.

The matt paint finish doesn`t well on this bike as the is too busy for it to work, so the white would be better, although crying out for some colour you only get on the pricier models.
