MCN showed you the new Brutale last week, but we now have more detail about the new middleweight model.

The 800 tips the scales at an impressive 167kg, while delivering a claimed 125bhp @ 11,600rpm, hitting the limiter at an indicated 13,000rpm, from the stroked F3 675 motor. Max torque is also impressive for an 800, achieving a claimed 81NM @ 8600rpm.

The Brutale also gets MVICS (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System), ride-by-wire, and fully integrated 8-level traction control. In fact, under the clothing, the Brutale appears to share almost everything with the new Rivale.

Prices in the UK are expected to start at £9299.
