Set for its official public debut at this year’s EICMA show, the MV Agusta Brutale 675 B3 was caught testing in this “spy photo” that was snapped near Varese, Italy. The form of the three-cylinder naked streetbike is not terribly surprising, as it borrows heavily from the MV Agusta F3, making similar changes to the supersport’s design as the original Brutale did with the MV Agusta F4. Expected to sell around the €9,000 mark, the Brutale 675 will be MV Agusta’s most affordable motorcycle.

While the four-cylinder F4/Brutale will remain MV Agusta’s premium offering, the three-cylinder bikes like the F3 and Brutale 675 B3 will take the brand into new realms, both in terms of price points and market segments. MV Agusta has already disclosed its plans on making a three-cylinder hypermotard model that would be based off the F3’s motor, and there are rumors of a dual-sport/adventure model as well. While the long-term roadmap for MV looks quite promising, the biggest worries right now with the Italian company is its short-term survival.
