MV Agusta has released information and a single image of the most expensive Brutale currently on sale with the new Corsa 1090 model which will cost a wallet-destroying £18,000.

The Corsa model is based on the 158bhp four-cylinder motor from the 1090R model but gets a host of mechanical and cosmetic changes which go a small way to compensating for the huge price rise over the standard 1090RR.

Changes over the standard 1090R include ultra-lightweight forged aluminium wheels, fully adjustable Ohlins suspension, a billet alloy top yoke specific to this model along with styling changes.

The main cosmetic changes include a gloss black painted trellis frame, hand-stitched rider and pillion saddle with new brake levers, brake and clutch fluid reservoir caps all machined from billet alloy. The tank guard has been specially made for this model while it also has a unique numberplate mount, carbon fibre hugger and front mudguard.
