2020 Brutale 1000 RR MV Agusta Naked Bike Review

The 2020 Brutale 1000 RR MV Agusta Naked Bike , based on the outstanding Serie Oro and now limited production, will bring the same nuances, carefully balanced aesthetic and technology component selections, and dynamic progression to the road. The new Brutale 1000 was developed to deliver a performance that inspires faith. An equivalent growth has not matched the constant increases in maximum power in sportier cars in road usability. Designing motorcycles with a focus on technology, aesthetics, and driver control is thus an obligation for motorcycle manufacturers. It’s essential to get the most out of the Brutale 1000 RR’s high-performance frame, engine, and electronics with the least amount of rider effort possible.

Design and Details

Four-cylinder models have always been known for their Brutale-like balance, and this is evident in the design of the new Brutale, which features tight lines and forms that are seamlessly integrated between the front and back ends. The Brutale’s distinguishing features, including the headlight, fuel tank, and tail fairing, were explicitly designed for this model. The inertial platform controls the Cornering Lights, which vary the beam’s direction and angle in reaction to the bike’s dynamic position. It allows the full-LED headlamp to provide a lighter. To go along with the headlamp’s internal colored X-shaped section, the new Brutale’s Daylight Running Lights provide an eye-catching lighting appearance.
Brutale 1000 RR’s outfitting choices make it almost identical to the Serie Oro’s in terms of emotional impact.

It’s worth noting that the carbon-fiber superstructures used on the BMW 1000 RR and Serie Oro use precisely carved carbon-fiber parts to highlight and enhance their respective frames and engines. The 1000 RR, on the other hand, comes with a complete set of attachments, including GPS tracking, which can be purchased separately. Instead of titanium, the bolts and screws are constructed of steel. Due to their specific design and weight constraints, aluminum rims have replaced the light carbon-fiber wheels of the Series Oro, contributing to the 1000 RR’s dry weight of a little over 180 kilograms.
The Brutale 1000 RR’s 5″ TFT LCD color screen with the 800*480-pixel resolution is the primary interface between the rider and the different adjustable options.

The electric handlebar controls are simple to use, letting you quickly access all of the many customization possibilities. You can manage incoming phone calls, messages, and music through Bluetooth-connected instrumentation. Additionally, the 1000 RR has cruise control, which comes in handy on a bike with as much exposed metal like this one. The dashboard allows for the most effective use of the many functions of the MV Ride navigation software, which opens up a world of possibilities. Bicycle electronics may be customized right away from a phone and itineraries can be stored, then shared with other bicyclists. When using the MV Ride App, you’ll be able to see all of your vehicle’s navigational instruments right on the dash.

Engine and Electronics

It’s the most recent incarnation of MV Agusta’s in-line four-cylinder design, much like the Brutale 1000 Serie Oro. All elements of this new edition have been redesigned, the best materials have been used, and electronic-management parameters have been significantly improved over previous editions. The super naked bike is the most powerful of its type due to all of this. 208 hp at 13,450 rpm and 116.5 nm at the same speed are new highs for both power and torque.

MV Agusta’s most current four-cylinder engines feature the radial valve timing and central timing chain after a major revamp inspired by Formula 1 and MotoGP technology. Radial valves from Formula One are employed in the combustion chamber, while titanium piston rods from MotoGP vehicles lower the engine’s mass, stresses, and inertia. MotoGP impacts the center timing chain, which may help reduce the torsion impacts of camshafts at high rpms.

New valve guides and camshafts have been installed, and the timing has been entirely re-tuned on the intake and exhaust sides. The pistons have Asso low-friction rings, and the crankshaft has been rebalanced to eliminate vibrations at low rpm.

MV Agusta’s revolutionary splitter lubrication system, based on first-hand experience in factory-derived racing, allows oil to be separated from moving mechanical components. In extreme riding conditions, including wheelies and high lean angles, the semi-dry-sump lubrication protects the mechanical components while minimizing friction. Most of the design and development work has focused on reducing friction, especially in the transmission, which was reworked to use gears that produce less noise while also reducing friction. The tonewheel and clutch covers, which absorb some noise, assist this effort.
Engine economy, power, and torque have been boosted by a complete overhaul of the intake system. To maximize engine efficiency, energy, and torque, the ducts have different lengths. Four lower Mikuni injectors and four higher Magneti Marelli showerhead injectors, placed above the intake duct, are employed in the current design. For maximum torque at low RPMs, the Arrow exhaust system has a throttle valve.

Electronic engine management has also advanced due to a collaboration with Eldor, who created the new EM2.0 control unit precisely for this four-cylinder layout. There are eight distinct settings for traction control slip and the option to turn it off. The IMU inertial platform uses lean-angle data to adjust intervention in a comprehensive ride-by-wire multimap system (Sport, Race, Rain, and Custom). The Front Lift Control, an innovation in the anti-wheelie design, has active and non-active modes. As a bonus, the EAS 2.1 Up Down transmission’s launch control is responsive to changes in engine speed and torque during takeoff, so it’s easy to use.

Chassis, Suspension, and Brakes

A “mixed structure” with steel lattice and aluminum side plates is used in the new Brutale’s frame, maintaining MV Agusta’s heritage while also meeting the needs of a sportier riding style that is both immediate and simple. As seen by the semi-clipped handlebar, the bike’s athleticism and ergonomically proper riding position are both evident in this model. An emphasis on aerodynamics, which is critical for a motorcycle with a peak speed of over 300 kilometers per hour, is shown by the placement of the wings next to the radiators, which increase downforce and add weight to the front end. At speeds over 200 kilometers per hour, the effect is noticeable and helps maintain the high steering precision for which MV Agusta bikes are renowned.

As with the Serie Oro, the chassis has a 1,415-mm wheelbase and front-wheel trail of 97 millimeters. Electronic, hydraulic adjustment of the Ohlins Nix EC fork is available in both application and release modes. The spring preload may be modified manually. When it comes to electrical control of suspension, the Ohlins TTX rear shock absorber and the Ohlins EC electric steering damper, which are both attached to the aluminum single-sided swingarm, are identical.

Brembo Stylema front caliper’s, radial calipers, and 320 mm floating discs are all found on the Serie Oro, as is the suspension. A two-piston caliper controls the 220 mm rear disc. The electronic control is handled by the ABS Bosch 9 Plus system with Race Mode, which is very light and efficient.
