XXX: 36 Photos of the MV Agusta Brutale 800

We might question the wisdom of building a stroked-out 798cc version of the three-cylinder MV Agusta Brutale 675, but we cannot disagree with the fact that the machine is a sight to behold. Using the same engine that motivates the MV Agusta Rivale, power for the MV Agusta Brutale 800 comes in at 123hp, with 59.7 lbs•ft of torque at 8,600 rpm, which means the new Brutale 80 won’t be nearly as peaky with its horsepower as the Brutale 675.

Fitted with higher-spec suspension and components, along with the MVICS electronics package, MV Agusta hopes that the Brutale 800 will be the feature-rich alternative to the more affordable naked bike, which is the Brutale 675. However you want to make the distinction between the two models, it is another piece of rolling motorcycle art, better known as MV Agusta. We have 36 photos of it after the jump for you to…enjoy.

    Ok, now this is mutch better. I will forget I ever saw the Rivale. It’s the new speed triple I have been waiting for.

    *drrroooool* beautiful…. white…. rims… my weakness!!

    yes, yes, yes..

  • I thought MV was starting to get their act together rather smartly, putting out some good models to fill the gaps they had, in appropriate price ranges.

    But now I am not so sure they are so smart.

    They are over-filling their gaps, too quickly when they are not fully supporting their existing production models.

    Mv is going to cannabalize sales from themselves by having too many options in each niche segment. This will leave a buyer to contemplate other bikes in each niche that may be better for the price.

    I think they are trying to do too much at once, and should have focused on the market penetration of a few select, good models (namely 675 F3, 675 Brutale, 800 Rivale).

    MV needs to be careful with what it is doing with its money – going straight at Ducati’s model strategy is a fool’s errand, and just because you can produce 6 new models, does not mean you should launch them.

  • They would have been better off launching the 800 with a low spec and high spec model.. and forgetting the 675 brutale, keep the f3 675..

    Jensen, any idea what the price point will be for this beauty?

  • It’s priced at 10,400 euros in the EU, which for old MV Agusta would mean the $10,400 in the US. New MV Agusta pricing? Hrmm…I’m going to say $11,500 +/- $300.

    It’ll be fairly affordable up-front, maintaining it will be a different story. That Italian “personality” never comes cheap.

    Here it is again: 36, count them – thirty-six pictures of every minute detail, and not a single shot of the cockpit!!! How do they do that, by which I mean WHY do they do that? It has to be deliberate but I am completely puzzled why anyone would want to hide that one part of the bike.

  • Nice looking bike. I’d be interested to hear how it sounds with that triple pipe.

  • “*drrroooool* beautiful…. white…. rims… my weakness!!”

    I’m with Kaz on this. The white with blue is absolutely drop-dead gorgeous.

    I agree with Tyler that may be to close, but if stripper Brutale 675 comes in under 11k and 800 is 12.5 k there is enough of a gap there. And lets not forget,one of the more fun bikes of all time an sv650 had a lot less power and weighted more, these things just might be the most fun bike out there right now.

    Is is all great…..but when is this going to be available in the states?

    In dealers March,what I heard, the Italian one is stunning
