MV Agusta’s Brutale 800 RR is the Italian company’s dynamic and refined naked bike. The 798cc inline-triple delivers a claimed 140 hp at 12,300 rpm. In regard to riding the smaller Brutale, we found that in the past the chassis was excellent, the bike lightweight, and its handling responsive. An overall balanced machine. Quickshifter, ride-by-wire throttle, ride modes, eight-level traction control, and LED lighting complement the look and feel of the 800 RR.
When Cycle World reviewed the 2018 Brutale B3 800 RR our test rider wrote: “the Brutale B3 800 RR is nimble, fast (151 mph claimed top speed), and offers terrific acceleration, but it is also a very versatile mount with excellent riding manners.”
Like many MV Agusta models, limited editions are often released. For example a couple of years ago there was the 800 RR America that flaunted the trio of American colors. There was also the very red LH44 model that was introduced in 2018 as well.
New countershaft and redesigned primary, optimization of manifold and cam phasing, redesigned valve guides, and new engine covers for increased protection and noise reduction. Different variants include the Brutale 800 RR (15,990 euros, est. $19,400) and the Brutale 800 RR SCS (16,990 euros, est. $20,600).
