MV Agusta have released specs and first official pics of the new Brutale 675, which, along with the new MV Agusta F3, is expected to provide a significant boost to MV’s mass market appeal.
Fitted with the same 675cc three-cylinder liquid-cooled fuel-injected engine as the MV F3, the Brutale 675 boasts 115 horsepower at 12,500rpm and 71Nm of torque at 10,600rpm, and weighs a mere 163 kilos dry. MV claim their three-cylinder engine is one of the most advanced units in its class, with a counter-rotating crankshaft and MVICS (Motor and Vehicle Integrated Control System), which integrates eight-level traction control and ride-by-wire throttle control with four fuel-injection maps for the engine.
The Brutale 675’s chassis is a steel tube trellis frame, mated to aluminium components including a single-side swingarm. The 43mm USD forks and Sachs rear shock are both fully adjustable and the bike rides on 17-inch alloy wheels, shod with 120/70 (front) and 180/55 (rear) ZR-rated tyres. The brakes are Brembo units with twin 320mm brake discs and radial-mount callipers at the front.
The MV Agusta Brutale 675 will be shown at the upcoming EICMA motorcycle show in Milan later this month and will be priced at 8,990 euros. The bike will be available in three colour combinations – red/silver, pearl white/matt gold and matt grey/matt anthracite. Should be interesting to see how the Brutale 675 will stack up against the Triumph Street Triple!
