We admit MD is a sucker for a picture of a new MV Agusta with a fancy paint job. Fortunately, this bike is more than just a fancy paint job. MV Agusta this morning announced the Brutale Corsa, a 1078cc, 158 HP naked with special features that set it apart from the Brutale 1090RR. Although sharing engine specifications with the 1090RR, the new Corsa features unique “ultra-light” forged wheels, as well as a fully adjustable Öhlins front fork (the 1090RR has a Marzocchi front fork). The Corsa also has its own unique “billet steering head”. Several other parts are machined from solid billet as well, identified in the press release below. All the details are in the following press release. We have no information on U.S. price or availability at this point, but you already know it will be quite expensive, reflecting its exclusivity. The price in Euro is 20,990. Follow this link for details regarding the technical specifications for the new Brutale Corsa.
Varese, 8 July 2013 – Adrenaline, power, performance: hand-built in small numbers, the exclusive Brutale Corsa pushes back the boundaries even further to venture into previously unexplored territory.
With 158 HP of power and 100 Nm of torque, the Brutale Corsa is instantly recognizable at first sight for the outstanding quality of its components, extreme attention to detail and spectacular bespoke livery.
The benefits of the ultra-light specific forged wheels and fully adjustable Öhlins front fork in terms of riding dynamics are instantly perceptible, as are those of the billet steering head created specifically for this unique version. There are plenty of new styling touches too: from the frame finished in gloss black paint and the hand-stitched rider and passenger saddles to brake levers, rider foot pegs and brake and clutch fluid reservoir caps machined from solid billet. The tank guard has been created specifically for this bike, while the sports license plate mount and the carbon fiber rear mudguard and front mudguard spoiler are branded with the MV Agusta Corse logo.
