MV Agusta reveal another RC
MV Agusta have just unveiled another RC model for 2018 - the Brutale 800 RC.

- MCN Live from Milan: Eicma 2017
- WSB: Rea sets all time points record with second win

- Moto Morini Milano unveiled
Much like the rest of the RC range, the Brutale 800 RC is basically a replica of the Italian manufacturer's WSB bike, although MV have made some slight changes to the engine to improve power while still meeting Euro4 regulations. The cylinder head, chain tensioner, camshafts and valves have all been changed. The changes result in a claimed power of 140bhp and 64ftlb of torque.
Only 350 Brutale RCs will be built, and each will come with the Reparto Corse kit which includes a snazzy SC Project exhaust and ECU to boost power to 150bhp. Also included in the kit are Ergal clutch and brake levers, a paddock stand, bike cover and certificate of authenticity. Each example will be stamped with its own unique number.
If you've read any of the previous stories about MV's RC models, you'll know the significance of the number 37 that features on the bike. It's nothing to do with the number Leon Camier has been running on his MV Agusta F4, rather, it's a reference to the number of constructor’s world championships the firm have claimed.
