Staff bikes: MV Agusta Brutale - Life's more fun naked

Andy Downes, 03 February 2012 10:54

It's been an amazing year with a bike that managed to combine a muscular engine with fantastic styling and almost daily use, including commuting and lovely trips on some amazing British roads. The huge 23-litre fuel tank gives an easy 220-mile range - brilliant for a naked bike which is comfortable enough for all-day riding. Collecting the bike from the ...

Staff bikes: MV Agusta Brutale - Brutale turns storm chaser

Andy Downes, 13 October 2011 15:41

The plan was simple enough. The reality turned out to be a tiny bit different thanks to the howling gales that affected the North of England courtesy of Hurricane Katia. It was supposed to be a two-day trip on the MV Agusta Brutale to Moffat in Scotland to stay at the brilliantly biker-friendly Buccleuch Arms Hotel, taking in five National ...

Staff bikes: MV Agusta Brutale 920 - the highest mileage 2011 model

Andy Downes, 19 August 2011 15:57

MCN's 2011 Brutale is now the highest mileage specimen in the UK, and possibly the world, after clicking through 4000 miles and its first major service. The scheduled service was carried out at MV dealer Drayton Croft in Hinckley, Leicestershire, and cost £200. The work took two hours and saw the oil and filter changed, the bike given a check ...

Staff bikes: MV Agusta Brutale 920 - British GP puts Brutale under strain

Andy Downes, 12 July 2011 14:25

Working at the British MotoGP round at Silverstone meant my MV Agusta Brutale test bike got a hard workout…and ended up looking like it had been buried at sea! The bike did more than 350 miles in three days as I was dashing between the office, home and the track; with many of the miles in the lashing rain that ...

Staff bikes: MV Agusta Brutale 920 - Something goes wrong

Andy Downes, 24 May 2011 14:20

It started innocently enough with a bit of a hiccup when starting the MV Agusta Brutale one evening for my ride home from work. It just wouldn’t start very easily for a second or two, then fired up and was fine. The problem was then intermittent in frequency but the constant element was the issue always centred around cold starting, ...

Staff bikes: MV Agusta Brutale 920 - That’s it run-in then!

Andy Downes, 05 May 2011 13:07

Last year I arranged with the factory on a recent visit that MV Agusta would supply MCN with one of the new 920cc Brutales as a long term test bike. The plan was for an MCN person to fly out to the Varese factory, watch a load of identical bikes being built on the production lines before saddling up and ...
