MV Agusta will launch the second generation Brutale 800 on July 19, 2017, in India. Dealerships have started taking bookings for the bike and the booking amount varies from Rs.4 lakh to Rs.5 lakh, depending on the dealership you are buying from. The ex-showroom price is Rs.15.6 lakh, as quoted by various dealers. Deliveries of the bike will start from August. MV Agusta presently has dealer outlets in three cities – Pune, Bengaluru and Ahmedabad. The Brutale 800 takes design inputs from its bigger sibling, the Brutale 1090. The oval-shaped headlight section remains the same but it now houses LED DRLs that give it a contemporary look. The sculpted fuel tank, contrast red trellis frame, single-sided swing arm and the iconic triple exhaust mufflers are evidence of MV’s design prowess. The floating tail section is simply a piece of art. Switchgear has also been revised and so has the new instrument cluster, which is much more legible than its predecessor now.
Powering the bike is a 798cc triple-cylinder motor that has been reworked to meet Euro 4 norms. It now produces 110PS @ 11,500rpm and a peak torque of 83Nm @ 7600rpm, and is mated to a six speed gearbox. The bike is constructed over an ALS steel tubular trellis frame while the rear swing arm pivot plates get aluminum alloy treatment. Suspension duties are managed by 43mm Marzocchi USD telescopic hydraulic forks with rebound compression damping and spring preload external and separate adjustment with 125mm fork travel at the front and progressive Sachs single shock-absorber with recoil and compression damping and spring preload adjustment with 124mm wheel travel at the back.
Braking is done by dual 320mm floating discs with Brembo radial four-piston calipers at the front and a single 220mm disc with Brembo two-piston calipers at the rear. The bike gets Bosch ABS system as standard. It is shod with Pirelli Diablo Rosso 120/70 R17 tyre at the front and Pirelli Diablo Rosso 180/55 R17 tyre at the rear. It gets a 16.5-litre fuel tank which is good for a 250km range and the whole shebang tips the scales at 175 kg. The maximum quoted speed is 237kmph.
