The MV Agusta Brutale 800 RR is the top-spec middleweight performance naked from the Italian brand. Price at Rs. 18.99 lakh (ex-showroom), the Brutale 800 RR gets significantly more power than the standard Brutale 800, along with other minor changes. The Brutale 800 RR is powered by a 798 cc, in-line three-cylinder engine, which makes 140 bhp of power at 12,300 rpm, and 87 Nm of peak torque at 10,100 rpm. The Brutale 800 RR is light, with a dry weight of just 175 kg, and has a top speed rated at 244 kmph. Braking is handled by twin 320 mm discs gripped by double floatic discs at the front, while at the rear, there’s a single 220 mm single disc. The Brutale 800 RR also gets standard ABS which is switchable. The rear wheel lift-up mitigation also regulates the action of the front brake to keep the rear wheel on the ground even under extreme braking conditions.
In terms of features, the MV Agusta Brutale 800 RR gets a full, multi-map Ride by Wire throttle control, with a choice of four riding modes – Rain, Normal, Sport and Custom, 8-level traction control and up and down quickshifter with a hydraulic slipper clutch. The RR uses a 43 mm, fully-adjustable Marzocchi USD fork and a Sachs monoshock at the rear. Design-wise, the Brutale 800 RR looks identical to the standard Brutale 800, with the exception of the distinguishing RR badging on the fuel tank. The MV Agusta Brutale 800 RR is brought to India as semi-knocked down units (SKD) and assembled by Kinetic Group’s MotoRoyale venture. Despite the drop-dead gorgeous looks and reputation as one of the most entertaining middleweight naked bikes available today, the Brutale 800 RR isn’t expected to be very popular in India, considering other middleweight performance naked bikes cost significantly less than the MV Agusta.
