MCN overall verdict rating is 4

Some things are so beautiful you just want to look at them and the MV Agusta Brutale 750 is arguably the most stunning roadster type motorbike anyone can own, especially the Serie Oro version. OK, it isn't that fast for a 750, and the headlamp looks a bit odd, but the rest of it simply oozes style, class and pizazz. It also handles and brakes superbly

The MV Agusta 750 Brutale suffers from having the F4 750 sportbike motor - it's underpowered and too revvy. It lacks the sheer liquid grunt of big 1000-1200cc roadster bikes, and the later 910 Brutale is a much sweeter engine for weekend blasting down your fave backroads

Ride and Handling

MCN rating rating is 5
Owners' rating rating is 0

The Oro has all the trick carbon kit and suspension components, but even the cooking 750S model has huge 50mm USD Showa forks, a swingarm that looks hewn from volcanic magma  and offers a sublime riding experience.

Look at the wheels, the suspension, the svelte, curvaceous exhausts. The MV Agusta Brutale is possibly the most gorgeous roadter class bike created and it would be churlish to demand copious underseat storage cubby holes, mudguadrds that actually keep rainwater off the bike's chassis, or mirrors that offer a good rear view.

Quality and Reliability

MCN rating rating is 3
Owners' rating rating is 0

There's no getting away from it, MV Agusta effectively went bankrupt very soon after this bike was launched. That's never something which promises 100% build quality in motorbike manufacturing and although MV got back in busines in 2003, it is still a brand with a reputation for fragility.

The Serie Oro 750 Brutale cost daft money when it came out, but as there are but 300 examples in circulation you can argue that resale values will remain steady. Find an MV Agusta Brutale 750 for sale.
