MV Agusta Brutale 800

Peak power may be slightly down but the Brutale 800 now has torque wherever you look and an electronics package to make the most of it

Brutale 800 review
Submitted by Steve Farrell on Fri, 29 Jan 2016

MORE power, less weight. Those are the traditional headline claims every time a bike is updated, aren’t they?

Not this time. MV Agusta has broken with tradition by making the new Brutale 800 less powerful than the old one, at 116hp compared to 125.

Peake torque is up, but only a bit, at 61lbft compared to 57.8. And it’s a little heavier, at a claimed 172kg dry compared to 167.

That's not the whole story of course. Less power and more weight isn’t a new MV strategy. The firm hasn’t made ‘heavier and slower’ its new company mission.
