New matt black Brutale

A lick of paint for MV Agusta's super naked

MV AGUSTA has given its naked Brutale range a fresh lick of paint for the summer season.

The new colour schemes come in a range of whites, silvers and blacks - which would all be a bit staid if it were not for a few dashes of Italian flair. For example, the subtle schemes really let the red, tubular frames stand out in all their glory.

We particularly like the matt black Brutale for all its old-school, streetfighter chic. Check out the flourescent, yellow rim tape - now there's a design flourish to divide opinion.

There is also a matt white version so your bike can match your garage walls.

Of course, if matt paint is too much of a fad for your classical tastes there's also a brace of two-tone options: metallic black on grey or graphite on pearlescent white.

Technically the Brutale remains the same with its 1078cc 144bhp motor (158bhp for the RR) and eight setting traction control and ABS unchanged.

So what constitutes a new model these days? Well according to MV Agusta 'just a touch of make-up is all it needs to become new again.'

The new Brutales will be in dealers later this month.
