After recently announcing the return of MV Agusta to the Canadian market, MV Agusta’s Canadian distributor Motovan has outed the Italian company’s new Brutale model. While it doe not seem that this model is the 675cc “Brutalina” that Castiglioni hinted at earlier this year, this Brutale instead appears to be an F4 derived street-naked, and is expected to hit the North American markets in mid-summer 2011. With pricing starting at $15,595 CAD, we expect pricing here in the United States to be closer to $14,595.
Likely based off the revised MV Agusta F4, which debuted at EICMA back in 2009, the new Brutale should see a style update to keep the street-naked inline with MV’s current take on the F4. Noticebale from Motovan’s pricing is the new Brutale’s lower price tag amount, which should help move some more units. We expect the new Brutale to have a 920cc displacement, and borrow heavily from the F4’s chassis design and aesthetic.
As expected, the MV Agsuta F3 is being listed as a 2012 model, making the bike’s public debut at EICMA more of a teaser than a release. Our sources tell us the company is still working on finalizing the specifications of the three-cylinder supersport, which seems to align with why the press release given out at EICMA was devoid of any such details.
As for the Brutalina, we expect to see the smaller Brutale start to surface once the F3’s launch date comes closer, with its official launch likely to occur after the full-faired bike’s. More info as we get it.
