The Brutale looks so wicked that it almost cries out for even more performance. Going that bit faster is what every rider craves. Power is addictive. It had to be even more “brutal”. MV Agusta’s response was this: the 1078 RR. Now with a new engine and other technical components dedicated to performance, the top of the range Brutale leads the way in the sport naked sector while proudly flying the “Made in Italy” flag.

The 100% MV Agusta engine is only for the select few who can manage the 150 HP and more that the new four-cylinder unit puts out. The decidedly muscular appearance of the new Brutale says it all and gives the rider an adrenalin rush before they even turns the key that kicks the mighty engine into life. Just looking at the Brutale starts you dreaming, listening to one sets your pulse racing, and riding one makes you fall in love. The 1078 RR is not just a motorbike; it is an incarnation of a true rider’s personality.

Others want to be such a person. They want the same type of courage that will let them take a machine to its limits, that will let them choose a real machine and not just something “normal”. There is nothing normal about the 1078RR: Life is faster, more colourful, more vivid. This is what a Brutale is about.

The new engine size now asks even more from the suspension and brakes. They need to be stronger and more efficient to redress the balance and give the bike that sure-footedness and superb rideability that typifies MV Agusta. There can be no doubt that the 1078RR will be the utmost naked.

Both models are available through the Australian MV Agusta dealer network. For the nearest MV Agusta dealer visit
