The all-new MV Agusta Brutale 675 will cost £7300 when it goes on sale in the UK aimed squarely at middlweight naked bikes like the Triumph Street Triple. By comparison the Street Triple costs £6,899.

MCN road tester Adam Child is currently at the launch in Italy and had this to say: "The first thing you notice when you get on this new mini-Brutale is just how light it is. MV claim a dry weight of 163kg and it certainly feels close to that.

"It's also incredibly small - I'm 5ft 7 and I find it small. If you're vertically challenged you should have no problem with this bike. On the move the light weight means it handles really well and it's incredibly easy to ride.

"It uses a similar chassis to the MV Agusta F3 and still has the same eight-way traction control and four different engine maps, as well as the same brakes."
