209hp MV Agusta Brutale 1000 RR released for 2020

MV Agusta has released a more ‘affordable’ version of the stunning Brutale 1000 Serie Oro for 2020; Aptly named the Brutale 1000 RR.

Almost one year after MV Agusta revealed the limited-edition Brutale 1000 Serie Oro, the stylish Italian bike maker has confirmed and released a mass-produced ‘RR’ iteration of the rather lovely naked machine. 

MV has stated the price of it too, which starts from €29,900 - around €13,000 cheaper than the Serie Oro. 

The original power figure of the Brutale was 211.8hp, one of the most powerful for its time. However, this figure has slightly fallen in RR trim to around 208hp. The two bikes still share the same 998cc, inline-four motor as the F4 RC superbike, and churn out a mind-bending 116.6Nm of peak torque. 

Being the less highly spec’d [cheaper] version, the RR does away with the lightweight carbon fibre wheels and titanium bolts. Instead, forged aluminium wheels and steel bolts are fitted. The Brutale 1000 RR still has numerous carbon fibre trinkets though and is also packed out with a full suite of electronics, which include: 

  • Up/down quick shifter

  • Eight-levels of traction control

  • Launch control 

  • Four riding modes 

  • 5” TFT dash 

  • Full LED light suite

You’d certainly want all of these rider aids to keep the stunning looking Brutale RR upright. With its sharp aggressive body panels, blingy Ohlins forks, quad high mount exhaust, and focused stance, the Brutale looks simply bonkers. And we love it! Oh, and it has wings to stabilise it at its 300kmp top speed… what’s not to love?  

It really is a great time for naked motorcycles. With the MV Brutale 1000 RR slotting in-between the supercharged Z H2, Ducati Streetfighter, and KTM 1290 Super Duke R - just with a slightly higher price tag.
