Billing yourself as a boutique manufacturer of motorcycle art invites intense scrutiny and whether fair or unfair, a cosmetic blemish or performance shortcoming when found is profoundly magnified. It’s the cross MV Agusta must bear, along with its tumultuous history of financial liquidity as well as its family history of adopted ownerships. Regardless the burden, MV remains relevant by ceaselessly pushing the boundaries of motorcycle design by offering enthusiasts something more than a two-wheel commodity.
A 2018 example of MV’s commitment to bettering its stable of show horses is the revised Brutale 800 RR. While not every reason the old model Brutale 800 lost to the new-for-2017 Triumph 765 Street Triple RS in our 800cc Euro Triples Streetfighter Faceoff has been addressed by MV engineers at the factory in Varese, the litany of updates do mandate another shootout be commissioned (hint, hint MO staffers).

every MV Agusta review in the past 5yrs they mention improvement on throttle on/off response. sure takes them long time when others have that figured out for years.
also ... that price ? beautiful bike sure, but the price is way way above competitors. sry MV, you have to do better
18,500 dlls... 5000 dlls for parts and labor, 13,500 to cover the fact that is a recognized brand... if only they were reliable machines...that would seal t deal.... yes design is cool...but there are more brands with cool designs for half t price.... it is like they overprice the bikes to make them look exclusive...more like unaffordable unreliable machines
Italians should stick to designing suits, the bikes look cool, but their engines sucks ballz, should have kept the Mercedes connection, my ducati isn't that great but can't wait to ride around the new V4, I want an MV but there isn't any real dealer in my hood and I'm not paying $26k for an oil filter if the bike(s broke
This is a motorcycle that needs to rip out on the open road, not putting around town where the throttle can be touchy. Italian sport-bikes are no compromise in the handling department so expect a little less comfort and stiffer suspension. The 800cc 3-cylinder is now further refined and reliability should not be an issue. And, yeah, expect to pay more for eye-catching Italian styling that sets you apart from the crowd especially when the tank badge says MV.
Would love to own one or any MV. There's always a 'BUT' with this brand though. High prices are OK with this level of quality but as some mentioned it's not matching others in the spec like TFT screens which is a must have for a bike like this. Also buying this new you'll lose so much money when you come to sell it on. Buying used you start to think about reliability and spares availability. Have much love for MV, just can't see me ever owing one.
I love my Brutale RR (2016) It replaced my 09 Street Triple R, both bikes would be hard for me to criticize. The MV cost more, and the dealer network and support is less than that of Triumph. ( although Triumph is loosing dealerships at an alarming rate). There are a lot of choices in the class, and for the average rider a lot of good choices, and the Brutale , for me, was a good choice.
I'm probably in the minority here but I'm not really a fan of this design trend where all the mass is in this tight ball up front with a tiny shelf sticking out back who's only purpose is to have somewhere to mount the seat cushion. It just looks weird to me and more and more bikes are looking like this.
Bad throttle feedback and fueling always had been an issue with MV for me, having said that no body makes prettier machines then MV. But its not about looks all the way. I am paying a heck lot for a very little motorcycle, there are a lot of options available for that price. Furthermore I knew of 2 MV dealerships and they both stopped selling them, so I am not even sure how the spare parts situation will be. Sorry MV but wont give you a second thought, for now.
I remember when I did a test ride in 2014 that the engine was stunning. I've read somewhere that because of Euro 4 new model is down on power, but that they tweaked the torque. Pity you didn't mention it and gave us your impression compared to the previous model.
The Euro 4 standard Brutale 800 is down on power compared to the previous gen, but with cartloads more useable torque.
This is the Euro 4 800RR, same power output as the Euro 3 compliant bike (140hp), more torque, slightly more weight (I think about 4kgs from memory)
These bikes perform amazingly well. I have a 2015 Brutale 800 rr. These are basically the same bike as the MV Agusta f4 800. It’s a race bike. The 2015 rr put out 144 hp at the crank and 125 at the wheel. That from an 800 triple! None of the other manufactures put out bikes in this class with those numbers. I mean it is not full out track ready if that’s what you mean, but it doesn’t get much closer.
Exnihilo415 I agree. I had a 2014 SF848 and traded it in last summer for a 2017 Brutal 800. The Ducati SF was amazing but they sat on the showroom floor. I'm not a fan of the newer Monster's which are already 16-18k. Imagine what the V4 SF would cost....20k plus. Too steep for most people.
They made the Streetfighter in some form from 2009 - 2015. The 848 version even won motorcycle.com middleweight a time or two. Today there is ferocious competition with Tuono, S1000R, 1290R, Speed Triple, and FZ-10.
I mean, I'll buy the V4 Streetfighter the day it's released but given the price point of the V4 superbike it's going to be a hard value proposition for many people. The streetfighter was not a money maker and Ducati does remember this and they won't want to cannibalize their own monster sales.
They were too early with the first gen Streetfighter, everyone was superbike mad. Now naked bike are the most popular range for all manufacturers. Sure the monster is good, but if they make a sorted Streetfighter, it will sell very well.
Competing with the Aprilia Tuono / Superduke bikes??? I don't think so, not even with the Speed Triple. Neither you seem nor minimally convinced when making that point, despite maintaining the due deference as result of being invited to present the bike in the very house of the brand in Italy... Nice bike overall, but also overrated (very pricey for its components and characteristics, and more importantly without the quality and performance of the best in the category).
This is a gorgeous motorcycle but that's just not enough to succeed. No doubt its visually pleasing but the new honda Cb1000r is beautiful as well yet comes with more tech and reliability. Just using the Honda as an example but other Japanese giants are also upping the game. Italian machines need to be more than just good looking or they'd be left behind as poser bikes.
I own an italian bike and maintenance doesn't cost anymore than a jap bike same with parts. That was true maybe 10 years ago but I can get parts same price and time than a jap bike. Jap bikes have more recalls too and my aprilia has been very reliable
Asad S yes, you do are a joke. You've got the Aprilia, you've got Ducati, you can call 'em poser bikes just like any other jap owner would do, but we know that's part of the story. The truth is they both play their game at the top end among the most exquisite machines the bike industry has to offer.
@TJ I'm with you man, I hate the bug eyes of speed triple at first but damn, the looks grows on me. having said that, the bike seems perfect now. but hey, there are always people who buy an MV just because they love the brand.
It’s good to hear that the electronics have been upgraded. I hope that fixes a lot of the reliability issues, especially long term. I really want an MV but reliability is an issue for me. Also heard their customer service isn’t the greatest but I know that depends on the dealership you buy the bike from.
Looks like a good bike - the triple exhaust is not quite my taste, still. Point to note that traction control and mode setting is independent on the Yamaha XSR900, and I am guessing on the MT09 too. Wonder if it is linked on other bikes in the class?
JIGA in person the tuono is a badass bike because it has a very sporty stance, for me the looks is ok but outdated. This week I had a test ride of the 1290 superduke, the engine gives so much pleasure, effortless big power from the bottom end and mental agressiveness at high revs, but again the front end is special but the side and rear looks very cool and impressive.
Jiga, well I read the interview of giovanni and timur they did this week, and apparently they will use the current frame of the F4RC and the current inline 4 with all the progress made within the competition. Timur said at least 200 hp for 175 kg dry. And a very different look. I wished they asked to an engineering company that makes motors as the english company called Ricardo that designed the Mclaren engines or another company as Cosworth or whatever, you know what I mean to make a new V4 engine for MV. Now I will hope the 2019 Tuono V4 will get a completely new look and the S1000RR will have a crossplane crankshaft because I love that engine sound and maybe I'll buy the S1000R when they will release it.
