Iconic Italian manufacturer MV Agusta has given the naked Brutale range a makeover for 2015 to include new paintschemes for all models.
MV has worked hard in recent years to simplify the Brutale range which now consists of a much easier-to-understand two bikes. Previously the range had split into multiple capacities of bikes and multiple versions and it became rather confusing.
The Brutale range now consists of the standard 1090 and the range-topping 1090RR models and all get new colours for 2015 with matte white and black options for the standard bike and dual colours for the RR model. The 1090RR gets extra graphics and new black on grey and metallic graphite on white colours.
There are no technical changes to the range but UK prices have not been set yet. The starting prices in Europe (not accounting for local taxes) are €14,610 and €18,640.
MV’s press release explains: “The intense black is the foundation for the contrast with the identifying trim and those fluorescent coloured wheels. In the white pastel version, the contrast is created with the red, which apart from the trim and the badge has also been extended to the chassis.
“The Brutale 1090 RR has even more detailed graphics, all of them metallic and featuring a two-tone appeal: metallic black on metallic aviation grey or metallic graphite on pearl ice white."
