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.
