Road dynamics, distinctive design, quality components and leading edge technology: since its launch, thanks to the fascinating style and compact allure, the Brutale 800 has set a new standard for all mid-sized nakeds. The oval-shaped headlight and the three-pipe exhaust with enhanced shape and capacity to glorify the signature sound; the light alloy sub-frame, combining shape and function. There are many functional details of note, such as the dual seat and the unique, concealed passenger handles as well as the LED indicators and aggressive looking lights. The dashboard is sporty yet complete, with high-tech, precision instruments. Balance, to us, means nothing less than unmatched riding pleasure, with maximum safety and control. Brutale 800 delivers top performance in an easy, instinctive way for every rider. The Euro 4 certified in-line three engine is unique and utilises a counter-rotating crankshaft: this solution derives from MotoGP and is particularly effective in reducing inertia during directional changes, thus enhancing the natural ease-of-handling of the Brutale 800. The only motorcycle in its class to offer electronic up & down shifting as standard. Normal, Sport, Rain and Custom: three of the four maps are set by MV Agusta whilst the fourth one can be customised according to a wealth of parameters. This is but one of the many possibilities offered by the MVICS electronics, including Full Ride by Wire, and 8-level adjustable traction control. The latest generation, two-channel BOSCH 9 PLUS ABS is compact and extremely lightweight, two features that make it ideal for a sports naked. The RLM (Rear Wheel Lift-up Mitigation), regulates the action of the front brake in order to keep the rear wheel on the ground even under extreme braking conditions.
