It was almost exactly a year ago today that MV Agusta first released the absolutely stunning Brutale 1000 Serie Oro, and now that the Varese brand has churned out the introductory “Gold Series” spec of its new naked flagship, the elite Italian firm has finally revealed the standard mass-production version of the ridiculously-potent street fighter with the Brutale 1000 RR.
The double-R Brutale retains the Serie Oro’s fully-adjustable, semi-active Ohlins suspension, Brembo Stylema calipers, and full electronics package with multiple ride modes, Bosch 9 Plus ABS, and eight-level traction control, plus the same 208hp (86-ft-lb) inline-four engine borrowed from MV’s fully-faired F4 superbike. The 1KRR also maintains the Serie Oro’s breathtaking design; single-sided swing-arm, dual under-tail pipe setup, sculpted tank, and downforce-generating radiator shrouds/winglets and all. The primary changes between the SO and RR are its weight, which is now 410lbs dry – only 5lbs more than the SO — on account of the carbon rims being swapped out for forged aluminum wheels, available color-schemes, and price — which has been announced at €30,000 (which translates to approximately $33,400, though US pricing hasn’t been revealed).
