MV Agusta Brutale 910R: God's own motorcycle

After the MV Agusta F4, the Brutale has to be the second most beautiful bike in the world!

First things first – MV Agusta motorcycles are the best looking, most gorgeous motorcycles in the whole world. When it comes to motorcycle styling, nobody, but nobody, does it better than MV, period. Look at the Brutale and tell us if you aren’t convinced. Other bikes may look good. MV Agusta machines are perfect. They're God’s own work.

The 910R isn’t, of course, just about looking good. It’s powered by a 909cc inline-four, which makes 136 horsepower. It’s a powerful, responsive and rev-happy engine that lets the Brutale keep up with most litre-class machines in terms of acceleration. The 910R also gets touches of high-zoot exotica – liberal sprinkling of carbonfibre, multi-adjustable 50mm Marzocchi USD forks, Sachs monoshock at the rear, forged aluminium wheels and Brembo brakes. The chassis is made of chrome-molybdenum steel tubing – very rigid, very lightweight. And finally, the engine gets hand-polished inlet ducts, a racing exhaust system and a special EPROM chip for enhanced power delivery.

Whether you want to just stand and stare or actually get on and ride, the Brutale 910R is, without any question, the most beautiful, most lust-worthy streetfighter in the whole world. That it’s also hugely fast and capable is just an added bonus.

Engine: 909cc, liquid-cooled, 16-valve, DOHC inline-four
Power: 136bhp@11000rpm
Top speed: 240km/h
In a line: What’re you looking at?!

That's Giacomo Agostini, on his MV Agusta racing bike. From the start of his racing career in 1961 to his retirement in 1977, Agostini won 122 Grands Prix, 12 Isle of Man TTs, 18 Italian championships, and 15 Grand Prix World Championships (in the 350cc and 500cc classes). One of motorcycle racing's all time greats.
