The MV Agusta brand had paid its tribute to the United States and the history of the brand; the Brutale America sports the same graphics on the tank that appears on the 1973 750 S. The name America comes from the prominent place in the MV Agusta heritage. The primary reference to the “S America 750”, a model that dates back to 1975 and it boasted an in-line four-cylinder engine with dual overhead camshaft including 75 horsepower and air cooling system.

More than 25-year later, it was the first MV Agusta Brutale, the four-cylinder engine designed by famous Massimo Tamburini to revive the name “America” with an immediately recognizable color scheme: red, white and blue. Fast forward to 2012; it was a time for another rendition of the MV Agusta Brutale America, also on the four-cylinder platform.

The first three-cylinder Brutale America was introduced last year. Because of the success of the version, the CRC workshop conceived a new interpretation of the Dragster 800 RR platform. The brand new “America” reiterates the attractive color scheme on the blue mica base with iridescent reflections and horizontal graphics cuts that improves the original characteristics of the Dragster 800 RR.

Be in Control

The MVICS electronic management system is developed by the MV Agusta’s specifications that include the inertial platform and new Ride-by-Wire throttle control. There are four different engine maps, i.e., three pre-set and one customizable that help Brutale America make the most in all conditions. Furthermore, there are eight different levels of traction control that allow maximum performance and safety, whatever the road conditions are.

Safety Matters
