It's an RR model, so it's the new top-of-the-line 800cc Brutale. Looks damn good, too.

Last week, MV Agusta released the first official pics of the 2015 Brutale 800 RR, which is powered by MV’s 798cc inline three-cylinder engine that produces 140bhp and 86Nm of torque. The new Brutale also gets an adjustable 8-level traction control system, which is part of the bike’s MVICS 2.0 (Motor and Vehicle Integrated Control System) setup. The tubular steel trellis / aluminium plate chassis and single-sided swingarm are carried over from the earlier Brutale. The suspension is comprised of an adjustable 43mm Marzocchi USD fork and adjustable Sachs monoshock, while the brakes are Brembo units, with radial-mount calipers for the twin 320mm discs at front. ABS is standard.

Other new bits on the 2015 Brutale 800 RR include red-painted cylinder heads, gold-anodized fork, reshaped seat for improved rider and passenger comfort, LED taillight with a new diffusion system (for improved visibility), EAS 2.0 quickshifter for the 6-speed gearbox, and restyled 5-spoke aluminium alloy wheels (shod with 120/70-ZR17 and 180/55-ZR17 Pirelli Diably Rosso II tyres). There’s also a new hydraulic chain tensioner, which, according to MV, reduces noise and enhances engine reliability. New colour combos for the bike include Rosso Shock Perlato / Bianco Ice Perlato, and Grigio Avio Metallizzato / Nero Carbonio Metallizzato. Claimed top speed is 245kph.

With three settings (sport, normal and rain) for the MVICS-controlled fuel-injection system, MV are trying to ensure that even relatively less experienced riders should hopefully be able to keep the fast, furious Brutale 800 RR under control in most conditions, most of the time. We hope. Of course, this is not a bike for novices – it’s meant for skilled, experienced riders, and if you’re one of those, you should be able to have an absolute blast on the 140bhp Brutale RR.

The 2015 MV Agusta Brutale 800 RR weighs 168kg (dry), has a 16.6-litre fuel tank, is priced at 13,980 euros and, should you be lucky enough to be able to afford one, should provide many, many weekends of unadulterated motorcycling fun…
