Another digital product launch under the new normal. This time it is MV Agusta as they introduced their naked hyperbike Brutale 1000RR. This is the third generation 4-cylinder Brutale bikes.
Upon the invite of its Philippine Official Distributor Motostrada, the virtual launch was conducted from Italy with MV Agusta Marketing Director Fillippo Bassoli, Design Director Giorgio Mazotti and R&D Director Brian Gillen.
” A lot of interesting things was made possible here at MV Agusta because of new technologies and we made sure that we took advantages of these new tools and processess,” said Mr. Filippo Basolli.
With 208hp the new Brutale 1000RR matches the limited edition Serie Oro launched last year on peak power.
It is powered by a 998 cc in-line four-cylinder engine capable of churning out 208 hp at 13,450 RPM and 116.5 Nm of torque.
Its radial valve timing and central timing chain were inspired by F1 technology contributing to the reduction of mass, loads, and inertia of the engine.
The 2020 Brutale 1000RR gets IMU-controlled cornering assistance with 6-Axis sensors, full LED lighting, and of course MV’s full electronics suite which include Bosch 9 Plus ABS with Race Mode, Four Map Torque Control, Eight Level Traction Control, Launch Control and Rear Wheel Lift Prevention and Front lift Control.
It has Ohlins electronically-controlled suspension with Nix front fork and TTX rear shock. Brakes are Brembo Stylema brakes.
The frame is chromemoly steel trellis frame, the wheels are forged aluminum and the tires are Pirelli Super Corsa.
Carbon fibre is present for much of its bodywork which lowers its dry weight to 186kg.
MV Agusta claims a top speed of ‘over 186mph. It has winglets of which the effect can be felt at over 125mph.
Design Director Filippo Bassoli said that the ” Brutale is not just an undressing of a superbike“, hence the styling and shaped was developed from the start to be a beautiful naked bike.
“The bike is designed to build trust between the rider and the bike. Focus is on comfort, confidence, and ease of use for the rider. The Brutale is not meant only for one quick lap around Misano race track but for many other riding conditions.”
“The riding position should be comfortable for the rider to use the bike in other, or all conditions. We want to make sure that the rider is confident while enjoying the use of the 200 HP, ” explained R&D Director Mr. Gillen.
Lastly, the new MV Agusta Ride App allows the rider to create their own engine, suspension and cornering maps on their phones, save and upload it anytime. Also, they can record the track times or tour routes and share it with others in the MV Agusta Ride App Community.
“When you have the chance to ride the bike, please feel what we have worked so hard on. Feel the transition from a very smooth and very easy bike to ride to a very hyper powerful and high performance rocket, ” Mr. Gillen added.
Motostrada has indicated a price of P2 Million pesos for the Brutale 1000RR. MV Agusta’s motto is “motorcycle art,” and indeed, great art don’t come cheap!
