2017 MV Agusta Brutale 800 RR

When MV Agusta asked themselves how they could improve upon their best-selling bike from last year, they had only one answer: strip it down and soup it up. And so they did – removing the prior model’s weighty rear tire and bumping up the horsepower, torque, and RPM ceiling. The result is the Brutale 800 RR.

In the brand’s own words, “the RR stands for maximum power.” And they’re not kidding. This motorcycle boasts a gut-wrenching 140 horsepower from launch. It also has an improved over-63 foot-pounds of torque thanks to MV Agusta’s inclusion of 2 injecters per cylinder. And it has a new sound-reducing cylinder head. So, whether you’re at the maximum velocity of over 153 MPH or going a much much more reasonable speed, the only sound you’ll hear is the sweet siren song of combustion. This updated model also features a reworked suspension, more lightweight wheels, a vibration-reducing harmonic dampener, an improved gearbox, and an up & down quickshifter. This vastly improved cycle starts at just $14,051. [Purchase]
