If you’re looking for something with the same subtlety, well-balanced choices in appearance, technology components, and dynamic progression as the Serie Oro’s Brutale 1000 RR, go no further than 2021. The 2021 Brutale 1000 RR MV Agusta Bike complements the excellent Serie Oro and offers a unique blend of aesthetic, technological, and energetic potential. Designing for the new Brutale approachability and performance accessibility was the primary aim of creating the new model.
The new 2021 Brutale 1000 RR MV Agusta Bike was designed to instill confidence in the rider, one of its primary objectives. An equal growth has not matched the constant rise in extreme power in sportier cars in road usability. To put it another way, motorbike designers are responsible for creating the best possible conditions for the customer in terms of technology and design. Accordingly, the Brutale 1000 R’s high-performance levels necessitate the utmost efficiency from its chassis, engine, and electronics.
2021 Brutale 1000 RR MV Agusta Bike – Features and Specs
Design and Outfitting
Design inspiration for this motorcycle comes from the MV Agusta F4 supersport bike, which, along with the 2021 Brutale 1000 RR MV Agusta Bike, marked the Italian brand’s dramatic re-emergence on the global scene. Since then, “Brutale” has become synonymous with an “outstanding performance sport naked bike.”
The new 2021 Brutale 1000 RR MV Agusta Bike reintroduces the bike’s original DNA, which was an essential part of the bike’s allure and legacy when it was first introduced. Artistic interpretations of the headlamp unit’s effect have made it as appealing as before. You can find the reason why this bike is so prevalent in the many subtleties that help to define it. A powerful, natural, spontaneous dynamic character captured by Adrian Morton’s design and reinforced even when the engine is turned off and the Brutale 1000 RR sits idle beside a road reveals its uniqueness even when no one is riding it.
Additionally, the riding posture reflects one of the design’s distinguishing features, namely the seamless connection of rider and vehicle, aided by the instrumentation’s usefulness and attractiveness.
From the first iconic 1997 edition, the four-cylinder Brutale’s design has been characterized by tight lines and precisely balanced front and rear end shapes. Several features are unique to this Brutale, such as the headlamp, tank, and fairing at the back.
The full-LED headlamp features Cornering Lights, which are controlled by the inertial platform: the light beam changes direction and angle in response to the bike’s dynamic location. As an additional unique feature, the X-shaped internal part of the headlamp is colored on the inside, which makes the new Brutale instantly recognizable from any angle. The Daylight Running Lights complete the look.
The 2021 Brutale 1000 RR MV Agusta Bike and the Serie Oro are nearly identical in emotional impact, thanks to design choices that bring the two models closer together.
There are also carbon fiber parts on the 1000 RR’s superstructure. Lightweight steel fastening hardware has been reworked to make it possible. A lengthy forging process is required to complete the rims of the 1000 RR aluminum. Their distinctive design and focus on weight reduction contribute to the 1000 RR’s exceptional final result, with a curb weight of 186 kilograms.
A second-generation 5-inch color TFT display with a resolution of 800 by 480 pixels serves as the primary point of contact for riders with their bikes. All of the bike’s customization options are at your fingertips with just a few clicks of a button. Electric handlebar controls and a linear menu layout make it easy to access the various settings options quickly.
Engines and Electronics
As with the Brutale 1000 Serie Oro, MV Agusta’s in-line four-cylinder architecture is seen in the 1000 RR engine.
For the first time, the electronic-management parameters have been thoroughly examined and have been vastly improved over previous versions in this new edition’s extensive makeover, which spans all parts.
It combines to create the world’s most potent super-naked motorcycle. At 13,450 rpm, the 208 horsepower and 116.5 nm of torque were new highs. As with all current MV Agusta 4-cylinder engines, the valve timing, and central timing chain have been completely redesigned, drawing inspiration from Formula One and MotoGP technology. The F1-inspired combustion chamber and the MotoGP-inspired titanium piston rods help to streamline the engine’s mass, stresses, and inertia for improved performance. The MotoGP-inspired design for the central timing chain reduces the torsion effects of camshafts at high rpm.
Completely re-timed intake-and-exhaust camshafts have been installed, as well as new valve guides. Rebalanced crankshaft and low-friction Asso circlips are used to reduce the amount of absorption at low RPM.
Due to MV Agusta’s first-hand experience in the factory-derivative competition, the innovative splitter lubrication system allows oil to be separated from moving mechanical elements.
When the rider leans hard, the semi-dry-sump lubrication provides mechanical protection while maintaining low friction levels.
Design and development efforts were heavily focused on lowering the amount of friction in the vehicle, as well as the gearbox, which was reworked to use gears that made for a quieter drive. The tonewheel and clutch cover absorb part of the noise.
Intake ducts of varying lengths were designed to maximize engine output, power, and torque after redesigned airbox.
With four upper Mikuni and four lower Magneti Marelli shower injectors above the intake duct, the present design employs double injectors.
Chassis, Suspension, and Brake
With a “mixed construction” of steel lattice and aluminum side plates, the new Brutale’s frame stays loyal to MV Agusta’s legacy while meeting the demands of a sportier, more straightforward driving style.
The semi-handlebars emphasize the bike’s prominent sports calling and result from extensive ergonomic research to provide optimal vehicle control, enough wind protection, and excellent overall comfort. There is a noticeable emphasis on aerodynamics, which is critical for a motorcycle that can reach a top speed of more than 300kilometers per hour, as seen by the placement of the spoilers next to the radiator. MV Agusta bikes are known for their precise steering, and the effect may be felt well above 200 kilometers per hour.
Like the Serie Oro, the chassis features a short 1,415 mm wheelbase and a slight but noticeable 97 mm front wheel tail. Hydraulic brake adjustments may be made electronically using the TIN surface treatment on the Ohlins Nix EC fork. The spring preload may be manually adjusted. An aluminum single-sided swingarm and the EC electronic steering damper from Ohlins, which adjusts continuously in response to the bike’s speed and is mounted on plates specifically designed for the new Brutale, provide the same level of electronic control. Brembo Stylema front calipers, radial calipers, and 320-mm-diameter floating discs are all included in the Serie Oro’s braking system. The rear disc is 220mm in diameter and has a dual-piston caliper.
