MV Agusta Introduces All-New Brutale 1000 Serie Oro (with video)

Design and Details

The unmistakable Brutale design cannot depart from such strongly characteristic elements as the headlight, fuel tank and tail fairing, all of which were custom designed and engineered for this model. The design is a tribute to the MV Agusta heritage all the way back to the very first Brutale. The headlight is Full LED and can rely on Cornering Lights, controlled by the inertial platform and able to illuminate turns based on the lean angle, all beneficial for safe riding. For the first time on a bike, the internal part of the headlight unit is coloured and forms an “X” shape that the steering base also takes on. The equipment includes front and rear Daylight Running Lights which make the bike clearly visible, even in daylight.

All of the vital engine and electronics functions are displayed on the 5-inch colour TFT dashboard with 800 x 480 pixel resolution. The riders smartphone can be connected via Bluetooth to the dashboard to manage incoming calls, texts and music. The purpose of its particular arrangement above the fuel tank – which is fitted with a locking cap made from billet – is to make the front end even more compact and aggressive.

The attention to detail is also evident in the noteworthy features such as the divided rider and passenger seats, hand crafted to leave a glimpse of the prestigious underlying carbon fibre pattern, the licence plate bracket fixed to the single-sided swingarm, the billet footpeg brackets like those on the ultra special RVS#1 as well as the removable passenger seat that can be replaced with a cover (standard issue), also in carbon fibre. The fire red colour scheme with matt finish creates an exclusive metallic effect similar to chrome: a further touch of class and elegance.

The exclusive connotation of the all-new Brutale 1000 Serie Oro is emphasised by the 300-unit limited edition and a dedicated kit made up of the titanium exhaust and dedicated mapping, solutions intended to further raise the already exceptional performance of a naked sports bike which is the only one of its kind in the world.

    MV hype is just that.
    No thanks for ant of their product.
    But it always provides an entertaining read.

    Who says you can’t polish a turd?

    No wonder they don’t sell many MVs. Not just fugly but fugly weird fugly. If some like it, by all means, buy it.

    Beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder. So keep this bike under a tarp and no one will know you bought it. Break out the Meguiar’s, lads.

    • Superlight says:

      I don’t think your opinion is shared by many. This Brutale is beautifully integrated and far superior in design to anything similar from the Orient. It is complex, but, then, so is every naked bike since every component is on visual display.

      • WSHart says:

        That’s fine. But it’s still an unattractive, overpriced motorbike. To me. And more than a few others. But not to you. So gain, fine. Buy one!

        • Superlight says:

          Funny, but I don’t see others on the thread agreeing with you. What I want to know is which naked bike do you think is attractive?

          • WSHart says:

            First off, I think the term “naked” is ridiculous for adults to use. Secondly, just read what’s here. Oh wait! You already did and still you posit this silliness?

            Exempli gratia can be found from “dino”, “iwc5707” and “TimC”.

            If you like it, fine! I don’t and some others don’t think much of it either. Is your ego hurted? It’s okay to like something that others do not and vice versa. 😉

    I guess it’s official… “Style” is a headlight that looks like it is melting off the front (from the warp speed, is that why??).
    Also in play.. The raised stinkbug rear end… Why, I can’t even think of a fake reason why that is supposed to look good.. more room for a stand-up wheelie maybe??

    If I had lottery money, I would get this bike, then re-do all the “styling” with normal proportions… The ultimate Sleeper bike. (now I understand, because everyone wants to be noticed these days!! Got it..)

    Meh. Kind of ugly. Its way too busy.

    • Superlight says:

      Lots of parts to deal with on a water-cooled 4-cylinder naked bike, all on visual display. I find this bike to be a well integrated design effort, far superior to most others in this product segment.

  5. TimC says:

    Q: Can the proportions on a bike get any worse?

    A: Probably, please don’t ask.

  6. Wendy says:

    Love the headlight, hate the availability.

  7. Grover says:

    The Black Prince is gonna have to ride one of these if he wants to impress me. Imagine the wind blast and buffeting without any bodywork at all!

  8. falcodoug says:

    410 pounds?

  9. Uffe says:

    Once again the Italians demonstrate that they are decades ahead of the pack when it comes to design. Every other naked bike will now look like farming equipment.

    • Dave says:

      This doesn’t appeal to me any more than the new Honda. I think it’s too busy with superfluous panels, even if the color scheme sort of “earns it”. Gotta hand it to them on the exhaust, though. That looks good and finished in a crowd of afterthoughts. I’d take the Honda for even money.

      • Pacer says:

        If they cost the same you would take the Honda?

        • Dave says:

          Yes, I would, though I guess I mean I’d take it at the Honda’s price. I wouldn’t pay what MV Agusta is probably asking for either of them.

      • Superlight says:

        What new Honda?If you’ve ever ridden an MV (I suspect you have not) I don’t think you’d make these comments. Nothing wrong with Hondas, but they’re quite boring compared to MVs.

        • Dave says:

          The CB1000r. I have ridden an MV before, only briefly. I didn’t find it any more exciting than any other premium motorcycle I’ve ridden.

          • Superlight says:

            I’ve owned plenty of Hondas, several Italian bikes and one MV (an F3). If it’s riding excitement you crave, the MV is only matched by one of the Ducatis (748R). To each their own.

    only 212 hp? Not going to displace the Ducati or Aprilia with puny hp numbers lol
