New MV Agusta Brutale 675 Coming in Q2 2016

Confirmed at the launch of the 2016 MV Agusta Brutale 800 in Spain, MV Agusta will bring the smaller sibling to its three-cylinder Brutale line in the second quarter of 2016.

Like the new Brutale 800, we can expect the updated Brutale 675 to be fully Euro4 compliant. We would also expect the 675cc to have the same mechanical and styling changes that are found on its 800cc sibling, namely a revised chassis geometry, updated MVICS 2.0 electronics (traction control, ABS, & quickshifter), and visual changes to the headlight, exhaust, and body.

For 2016, MV Agusta adjusted the 2016 MV Agusta Brutale 800’s engine timing to make more power in the lower rev-ranges (at the sacrifice of some top-end power), and we would imagine the same holding true for the updated MV Agusta Brutale 675 when it arrives.

With a very favorable response from the press at the Brutale 800 launch, and since the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree on these two machines, there should be high expectations for the 2016 MV Agusta Brutale 675.

We should have a review out shortly on the 800cc model, but the “too long; didn’t read it” version is very positive. The 2016 MV Agusta Brutale 800 has a very connected feeling from the rider to the engine and chassis; ample power for a middleweight machine’ and superb styling to wrap it all in.

Expect also to see the revised 800cc engine debut in updates for the Dragster 800/RR and Brutale 800 RR models later this year, after the new Brutale 675 break cover.

    A2 compliant for sure? The current 675 is 11 kW too powerful and 8 kg too light, but if it undergoes the same Euro 4 treatment as the 800, it could easily become the most premium A2 bike on the market.

    I’d love to see this (and other MV models) at an IMS show, but for some reason MV, Aprilia and Moto Guzzi won’t spend the marketing dollars to show the general,public their machines and there are so few US dealers that we can’t easily see them there either. Frustration.

    Does anyone actually buy the 675 Brutale? The 800 is just a little bit more, seems few potential buyers of a new MV would be put off by small marginal price increase for the bigger triple.
    The F3 in 675cc guise could make sense I suppose as they have had success racing it and someone might want a 600 class legal bike (although again the 800 seems like such a better deal for not much more $$$).

    Will it still eat Starter Sprags every 1,000 miles thought?

    I bought the F3 675 when it first came out in 2013 and have no regrets. Yes, the 800cc version that came along later has more power, but you really can’t use what the 675 has on the road, so no big deal unless you expect the MV to be your only bike. If so, the 800 would make more sense than the 675.

    Curious: is there a demand for super-premium learner bikes?

  • sigsegv

    According to MV, the Brutale 800 accounted for 35% of the 9000 bikes they sold in 2015, followed by Turismo Veloce and Dragster. In Italy, for reference, they sold 230 Brutale 800, 198 Turismo Veloce and roughly 180 Rivale. No other model managed to break 150 units.

  • sigsegv

    I’m doubtful, but given the much better value (and sales) of the 800, being A2 compliant it is the only plausible reason d’être of the new 675.
    MV already offers A2 compliant versions of both the Brutale 675 and F3 675, but they are de-tuned to 70 kW unrestricted. It can be circumvented illegally, but it is a big downer. If they give the bike enough personality, and price it right (like 9890 euro) it might have a market.

    An 800cc motorcycle is not a learner bike – even Milwaukee knows that! :-)

    Speaking of 300cc cycles …

    BMW’S forthcoming G310R and earlier INDIAN TVS ‘Draken’ (250cc) Concept cycle show a familial association not engine type or displacement related.

    Possess a 500cc ‘Boxer’ Flat Twin (BMW ‘Roadster’) concept based on the TVS ‘Draken’ – NICE!

    The next 675 will be on 70 Kw it’s certain
