The all new MV Agusta Brutale 800 launches in the Indian market.
The newly launched MV Agusta 800 will be the cheapest bike to be offered by the Italian bike maker in the Indian market and has been priced at Rs 15.59 lakh (ex-showroom, pan India). The Brutale 800 coming to India is the second generation of the middleweight naked motorcycle that was first showcased at the 2015 EICMA motorcycle show in Italy. The Brutale 800 is the naked version of the MV Agusta F3 which is on sale in the Indian market and has been designed by Adrian Morton who succeeded the legendary Massimo Tamburini and the British designer has done a great job.
The MV Agusta Brutale 800 is a stylish, high-performance naked with exotic Italian lineage associated with the MV name. With muscular and gorgeous looks, as well as crackling performance, the Brutale 800 promises a premium, naked street bike in the middleweight segment.
The MV Agusta Brutale 800 has the design silhouette of the bigger MV Agusta Brutale 1090 but it has been tightly packaged with more edgy lines. The oval shaped headlight profile remains but it now receives LED DRLs that give it a modern touch. The sculpted fuel tank, contrast red trellis frame, single-sided swingarm and the iconic triple exhaust mufflers endow the bike with Italian design flair for which the brand is renowned for. But the party piece has to be the floating tail section that takes your breath away. Switchgear has also been revised and so is the new instrument cluster which is much more legible than its predecessor.
For the 2017 model, the bike gets some styling updates as well as technological upgrades, including multimap ride by wire, eight-level traction control, slipper clutch and switchable ABS system from Bosch.
The engine is powered by a 798 cc inline triple engine which makes around 109 bhp and 83 Nm, the Brutale 800 will be assembled in India as semi knowked down units (SKD) and priced around Rs. 15 lakh.
The new motor develops 110PS of power at a rather high 11,500rpm and peak torque of 83Nm is made at 7,600rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox with slipper clutch and the new bike also gets bidirectional quick shifter. Talking about electronics the new MV Agusta Brutale 800 features 8 traction control levels, 3 ABS levels and engine braking control. There are four riding modes on offer, Rain, Normal, Sport and Custom. The 2017 Brutale 800 is expected to be priced around Rs 15 lakh ex-showroom.
Though the new bike certainly looks sharper, but surely can live up to the expectations.
