2013 MV Agusta Brutale Corsa

MV Agusta may have its line of “affordable” three-cylinder machines, but the Italian company continues to produce exclusive and exquisite four-cylinders as well, and today is no different.

Debuting the 2013 MV Agusta Brutale Corsa, the company from Varese, Italy has updated its 156 hp (116.5 kW) 1,078cc four-cylinder naked bike, and added a host of add-ons…along with a higher price tag.

To help justify the MV Agusta Brutale Corsa’s €20,990 price tag, the Italian company has fitted forged aluminum wheels and Öhlins forks. MV Agusta has also built a new billet steering head for the Brutale Corsa.

Other details include hand-stiched seats, glossy black paint on the trellis frame, and a number of details pieces like the footpegs, levers, and fluid caps are made from billet. You will also find carbon fiber fenders, fore and aft, ablazoned with the MV Agusta Corse logo.

For us here at Asphalt & Rubber, it is hard to see something labeled “Corsa” come with only basic cosmetic changes (yes, the forks and wheels are a nice performance upgrade), and no motor work.

Instead, we would rather see MV Agusta build something unique for its ultimate Brutale expression, rather than fall into its old habit of slapping on some paint and using the word “new” when building out the company’s model line.

At a €3,000 price desparity over the MV Agusta Brutale 1090RR with ABS, we would have to pass on this exclusive item. It does look nice though.
