MV Agusta Brutale 1078RR declared most beautiful bike at EICMA


The 2008 Brutale 1078RR. Beautiful!

And if the standard Brutale 1078RR is not enough, here are some tarted-up variants...

Looks like even after all these years, Massimo Tamburini’s work is still hard to beat. Designed by Tamburini and first seen back in 2001, the MV Agusta Brutale is still winning beauty contests in 2007. At this year’s EICMA show in Milan, Motociclismo magazine asked visitors to vote for the bike which they thought was the most beautiful, and the 2008 Brutale 1078RR won, with 25.7 percent of visitors voting in its favour. The Ducati Monster 696 came in second with 15.2 percent votes, while the BMW HP2 Sport was in third place, with 9.2 percent votes.


The Brutale 1078RR Challenge. Get ready to race!

The Brutale 1078RR will go on sale early next year, along with its siblings, the Brutale 989R and the 910S. With 154 bhp from its inline-four, the 1078RR is the most powerful naked bike MV have ever built. Which is probably why there is an MV Agusta Brutale race series planned for 2008. Called the ‘Brutale Challenge,’ this will be a six-race, one-make series, with up to 36 riders in the fray. Want to take part? Download the Brutale Challenge registration form (PDF format) here.
