2010 MV Agusta Brutale Breaks Cover GIX3967 560x373

You’ll remember a month ago we brought you spy shots of what appeared to be the new MV Agusta Brutale testing around the Almeria Circuit in Spain. In that outing we spotted what appeared to be both the revised versions of 990R and 1090RR, and now we’re happy to report that the 2010 MV Agusta Brutale has officially broken cover.

You wouldn’t know it by looking at it, but the Brutale has had over 85% of it components redesigned and replaced. Clearly MV Agusta has kept the basic shape of the Brutale true to its original form, but if you look closer you can see where the details have changed. Video, pictures, technical specifications, and more after the jump.

Developed all within the doors of MV Agusta, the company is quick to let you know that the Brutale is still a purely Italian affair. The most noticable changes are the new headlight, mirrors, rear swingarm, and handlebar controls, but all these modifications are really refinements to the MV design, and seem like logical progressions, rather than clean-slate start-overs. The rear swingarm is longer than before, but is also 2lbs lighter than before. MV made all these components in-house, which is pretty impressive when you consider that even Ducati sources basic components from parts suppliers.

Modifications to the motor are obviously less apparent to the naked eye. The 990R gets a modest displacement increase from 982cc to 998cc, with the new motor set much more under-square than before. Power will come in at 139hp and 78lb•ft of torque for the “unrestricted” model. A re-desisnged crankcase makes the motor over a pound lighter, and a re-designed gearbox makes for smoother shifting.

For the 1090RR, similar modification have been made as seen on the 990R, except of course the displacement will come in at 1078cc. Power for the 1090RR will also be higher than the 990R, with 144hp at the crank, and 85lb•ft of torque. The 1090RR also comes standard with a slipper clutch, and also features items not found on the 990R, such as: adjustable foot rests, forged rims, a rear shock with high and low settings, and Brembo monobloc brakes up front.

Prices start at $15,000 and $18,000 respectively for 990R and 1090RR, respectively.
