MV Agusta Brutale 990R (2010 - 2012) review

Manufacturer:
MV Agusta
Category:
Naked
Price:
£ 12000

Average: 3 (1 vote)

MV Agusta also launched the £11,950 990R, aiming at café culture. The R features a 998cc engine with the same bore as the 1090RR, just a shorter stroke. The fuelling doesn’t feel as smooth as the 1090RR and coupled with the wholly road-orientated Pirelli Diablo Rosso tyres, the feedback from the front-end wasn’t what I expected. The chassis is identical to the 1090RR, but the wheels are slightly heavier and not forged like the 1090RR. Again, detracting from the nimble feeling of its more glamorous brother. Although an improvement on the 910 and easier to ride thanks to better fuelling and comfier due to a revised riding position it’s not as good as the 1090RR on the road or track.
