Put a ring on it: MV Agusta launch Nürburgring special edition Brutale
Masters of the limited edition, MV have unveiled another short-run model, this time a modified version of their hypernaked Brutale.
Called the Nürburgring after the iconic German track, the bike is effectively a Brutale 1000RR with a load of fancy carbon fibre bits bolted on.
Just like the standard 1000RR, the Nürburgring produces a whopping 205bhp @ 13,000rpm and 85ftlbs of torque, which is more than enough to be getting on with.
For this special edition, MV focused primarily on losing weight, so everything that could be carbon fibre is including the airbox, wiring cover, clutch cover and air intakes.
There’s even a nifty little carbon fibre spoiler over the top of the headlight, although quite how much of an aerodynamic difference it makes is anyone’s guess.
The biggest change is the BST carbon fibre wheels, which MV say they developed in collaboration with the company, with claimed improvements to the acceleration, handling and stopping – so everything basically.
The knock on result for all this carbon is a 3kg weight saving over the standard RR, for a 183kg dry weight.
As you might imagine for a bike of this calibre all the rest of the kit is top notch too, including Öhlins electronic suspension and steering damper plus Brembo Stylema calipers. Of course if all this bling wasn’t enough, MV also offer a ‘racing kit’ as pictured below.
The highlight of the racing kit is a WSB inspired 4-2-1 titanium Arrow exhaust, which helps to drop another 6kg off the dry weight. Combined with the race ECU it also unlocks a few extra ponies, boosting peak power to 213bhp @ 13,200rpm.
Last but not least the Nürburgring also has its own fancy paintjob with red highlights over a silver base. MV are producing just 150 of the Nürburgring special edition, so if you want one you’d best be quick!
