More detail breaks about the new middle Brutale

Published: 12 November 2012

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.
