MV Agusta Brutale R 1090 Breaks Cover

We’ve already heard about the MV Agusta Brutale R 1090, a continuation of MV Agusta’s trend to bring more affordable motorcycles to its product line-up. Taking the motor of the Brutale 1090RR, the oddly-named Brutale R 1090 is the bigger-displacement cousin to MV’s entry-point Brutale 920. Differentiating itself from the 1090RR by offering lower-spec wheels, suspension, brakes, and other detail items, the 2012 MV Agusta Brutale R 1090 offsets those deficiets with an attractive €13,990 price tag.

For that money you’ll get the same 1,078cc radially-valved motor from the 1090RR, which puts out 144hp from its four inline cylinders. Forks are 50mm Marzoochi units, complemented by a Sachs rear shock. Engine mapping has been tuned for the Brutale R 1090, while an eight-level traction control system will come standard. Colors will be red, white, or black, as we ca now see from the studio photos of the new MV Agusta Brutale R 1090. We expect we’ll get to see the latest Brutale up-close and personal at the EICMA show later in the year; until then, check out the photos after the jump.

    So…Poorer handling and braking, but more power–Sounds like a recipe for squids the world over.
