MV Agusta has officially taken the wraps off the Brutale 675 for the first time with the Triumph Street Triple rival confirmed as being priced at £7999 in the UK.
The Brutale shares the same basic inline three-cylinder 675cc engine with the F3 but in this naked bike version it has been retuned for 115bhp at 12,500rpm. Despite being the least expensive MV Agusta ever sold in the UK it retains most of the Motor and Vehicle Integrated Control System (MVICS) which includes ride by wire throttle, multiple engine maps and eight-way adjustable traction control.
MV is claiming a dry weight of 163kg which when oil, water and fuel are added will equate to around five kilos less than the Triumph Street Triple R’s 189kg even with a full tank of fuel.
