For many motorcycle enthusiasts, owning an MV Agusta is the ultimate dream—the pinnacle of motorcycling itself. Unfortunately for most of us, bikes of this caliber are simply beyond our reach. However, this won’t stop us from dreaming about having Italy’s finest two-wheelers in our garage.
For the 2021 model year, MV Agusta has launched a new and improved Brutale 1000 RR—the bike in which the even rarer, more exclusive Rush 1000 is based on. Now, the iconic Italian manufacturer unveiled the latest iteration of the Rush 1000 a couple of days ago. Needless to say, we were absolutely stunned at how beautiful, not to mention powerful that bike is.
This time around, MV Agusta has launched the slightly more attainable Brutale 1000 RR. Let’s take a closer look at some of the revisions to the new machine. Well, for starters, MV Agusta has gone ahead and revamped the engine to conform to Euro 5 emission standards. The best part of it all is that despite running cleaner, the 999cc inline four-cylinder motor continues to pump out an astonishing 208 horsepower. This gives it a seat on the throne of the most powerful naked bike in the world—a throne it shares with the Ducati Streetfighter V4.
On the tech side, the MV Agusta Brutale 1000 RR continues to boast the latest and greatest. With an IMU-powered suite of rider aids, this bike is sure to inspire confidence, be it on the street, or on the track. Some of the electronic features found on the bike include multiple ride modes, traction control, multiple cornering ABS modes, and a slew of other sophisticated features. All these features can be toggled and selected via the bike’s 5.5-inch full-color TFT display. Honestly, given how capable and groundbreaking the current generation Brutale 1000 RR is, it’s surprising that MV Agusta was still able to make it even better.
