The 2013 MV Agusta Brutale 800 looks good but we do wish MV had the courage to experiment a bit with this bike's styling. Too much of a good thing can get... boring?

MV Agusta have released pictures and specs of the Brutale 800, which slots in between the 675 and 1090, extending the Brutale range further and adding one more bike to the MV line-up. The bike looks good but in a familiar sort of way. We do wish MV had made more of an effort with the 800’s styling, which is more or less a replica of other Brutale bikes…

The Brutale 800 weighs just 167kg and is powered by a three-cylinder liquid-cooled fuel-injected 798cc engine that produces 125 horsepower at 11,600rpm and 81Nm of torque at 8,600 revs. It’s a high-tech engine with an advanced MVICS (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System) electronics package, which include ride-by-wire throttle, integrated 8-level traction control, and 4-mode selectable engine mapping that alters power delivery to suit a wide range of riding conditions. Top speed is a claimed 245km/h.

As you’d expect, the Brutale 800 gets top-spec running gear – a hybrid frame (mix of steel tube trellis and aluminium alloy plates, as with all other current MV bikes…), single-sided swingarm, adjustable 43mm USD fork and rear monoshock, and twin 320mm brake discs at the front, with Brembo 4-piston radial-mount calipers. Available in metallic red/silver, white/red, gray/white and white/blue colour schemes, the Brutale 800 is priced between 9,990-10,990 euros.
