The MV Agusta specials bring their history of success to the U.S. with the new Brutale 800 RR America. The motorcycle, which offers an original, stylish take on a piece of MV Agusta history, will be available in dealerships beginning this month.
The latest Brutale 800 RR America, the first America-tagged MV Agusta in six years, is equipped with a 3-cylinder in-line engine renowned for its performance, compactness and cutting-edge technology. The special version has been developed on the basis of the Brutale 800 RR, a model that has just undergone far-reaching renewal. Starting with a complete redesign of the gearbox — now with even smoother, more precise meshing — the bike is brimming with technical upgrades. A new balance shaft and redesigned primary transmission, optimised shaping of the intake and exhaust cams plus new valves are just some of the many improvements on this bike.
Electronic engine control has also been upgraded with new algorithms and engine mappings. Traction Control has been refined even further by honing strategies and calibration. Chassis development has also proceeded apace: the engine is now attached
to the frame, boosting the overall rigidity of the bike. Another new feature is the rear cush drive system, designed to maximise riding comfort. This numbered Special Edition has plenty of distinctive features, starting with a metallic blue colour scheme that catches the light with shimmering iridescence. The tank sports a star-studded motif, just like the one on the 1973 750 S. Gloss black paintwork enhances many features, such as the front mudguard with MV Agusta logo and the radiator side panel which sports the wording “America Special Edition”. Meticulous finishing is also evident on the seat, which features gilt stitching, specific materials for the rider and passenger zones and comfort-enhancing padding.
To highlight the exclusiveness of the Brutale 800 RR America, each bike features the
“America Special Edition” legend and a progressive production number, located on the
instrument cluster fairing. This same production number is also on the certificate of
authenticity delivered to each new owner.
