The Bestiale Project: A more 'radical' MV Agusta Brutale

Can Tamburini's work be improved upon? Yacouba Galle seems to think so, hence the Bestiale!

The Massimo Tamburini-designed MV Agusta Brutale 910 is one hell of a good looking motorcycle. But there’s always room for 'improvement,' right? Which is why Yacouba Galle, a former motorcycle journalist who also likes to try his hand at designing bikes, has come up with the Bestiale concept that you see here. Along with another Frenchman, Laurent Dupas, Galle has designed the 'sharp, aggressive' Bestiale in an effort to make the Brutale more, er...., radical. Ahem.

Galle has kept the original Brutale 910’s engine, chassis, wheels, suspension and single-sided swingarm, but the bodywork is all new. At the front, there’s a single Xenon projector headlamp, flanked by multiple LEDs. Turn-indicators are incorporated into the bodywork and instead of conventional units, these are a line of LEDs on each side.

Dupas and Galle want to offer bolt-on Bestiale kits to Brutale owners who want to personalise their bike. (Aren't MV Brutale 910s 'personal' enough already...?)

For Brutale owners who want to ‘personalise’ their bike, Galle wants to provide a bolt-on kit which would allow them to transform their bike into the Bestiale. Get more details on the official website here.

Can Tamburini's work be improved upon? Maybe, but it hasn't happened yet... certainly not in this case!

is "Un-fuglying" a part of the customisation list?

the bestiale looks just rubbish. I'd take the regular brutale any day over this pile of s*&^!

The French are known for being a bit mad and the Bestiale proves that that is indeed the case. Please Mr Yacouba, lay off the MV Agusta Brutale. Find another hobby. Gardening, maybe?

That front headlight is just plain laziness...

It looks as if Tamburini's job is safe.
