If you think the MV Agusta Brutale 800 launched last year was not mental enough, we have some great news for you. MotoRoyale has just launched the Brutale 800 RR for Rs 18.99 lakh (ex-showroom) in India, which is available in two colours - white-black and red-black.
Motoroyale will no more be selling MV Agustas through exclusive showrooms. Instead, the company will be selling it through multi-brand outlets set to launch in select metro cities in the first phase.
Other brands that will be sold alongside MV Agusta are the British brand Norton, Italian brand SWM, FB Mondial, and the Korean brand Hyosung.
The Brutale 800 RR looks identical to the standard Brutale 800, with two major distinguishing factors being the ‘RR’ badging on the fuel tank. Otherwise, the oval-shaped headlight with LED DRLs, the chiselled fuel tank, single-sided swingarm and the three gold-coloured exhaust pipes on the side remain unchanged.
The 798cc, inline-three, liquid-cooled mill produces 110.5PS at 11,500rpm and 83Nm of torque at 7600rpm on the standard version. The RR, on the other hand, produces a mind boggling 142PS of power at 12,300rpm and 87Nm of peak torque at 10,100rpm. With such figures, the Brutale 800 RR ends up competing with most litre-class nakeds, at least on paper. MV Agusta also claims a top speed of 244kmph on the RR, 7kmph more than what the standard model manages.
The motor is paired with a slipper clutch-actuated six-speed gearbox assisted by a quickshifter for seamless up-down shifts. With no change in the dry weight of 175kg over the standard model, the 800 RR can be tamed via four riding modes and an 8-stage traction control system. For track days, the Brutale 800 RR also gets a steering damper, which can be manually adjusted with different settings.
The Marzocchi upside-down forks at the front get preload and rebound compression adjustability. Meanwhile, a fully adjustable Sachs monoshock unit manages suspension duties the rear. Braking is managed by Brembo twin 320mm discs at the front and a 220mm disc at the rear.
