Riding at the Pinnacle of the Naked bike craze is the MV Augusta Brutale. In typical MV fashion, very modest changes have occured for the 2009 line-up. Most obviously is the extra 169cc’s, which bump the Brutale’s displacement equal to that of the F4 (no surprise since they share so many common parts). Read more after the jump.

The extra bump in displacement means an extra bump in power. The 1078RR makes 154hp (+15hp from the 909cc) and 86.2 lb•ft (+15.5 ft lbs from the 909cc) of torque. The 1078RR will also borrow the F4 RR 312‘s Monobloc Brembo calipers, it’s slipper clutch, and new styling cues.
