It is the next step in a journey that started with the original Brutale, and it shares the appearance of the market’s most complete sports nude. A new engine, new electronics, and a new chassis design are all part of the package. In a few words, the new MV Agusta 2021 Brutale RR Motorcycle can be summed up in a sentence. Upgrades have been made in every aspect of this bike, including a wholly reworked electronics section. A razor-sharp yet easier-to-use Brutale is the end product due to innovative technology.
MV Agusta 2021 Brutale RR Motorcycle – Features
Engine, Relentless Improvement
Numerous improvements have been made to the in-line three-cylinder engine, including the counter-rotating crankshaft (which is still unique in this class). For obvious reasons, it is Euro 5 compatible and yet maintains a peak horsepower of 140.
DLC-coated tappets and new valve guide materials significantly minimize internal friction, resulting in improved engine efficiency at any rpm. A new exhaust system and injectors with an injection pressure increase from 3.5 to 4 bar round out the changes. With the new ECU, throttle control is more accurate than before. Reliability and launch accuracy were both improved by adding a more robust clutch basket to the clutch.
In addition, the EAS 3.0 electronic gearbox, now in its third generation, incorporates a new sensor and provides quicker and more accurate gear changes with smoother shifting.
Electronics, State Of The Art
The new Brutale 800’s electronics compartment is unquestionably the spot where the generational jump is most apparent. IMU inertial platform designed for MV Agusta by e-Novia in Milan took electronic controls to the forefront of technology.
Traction control and anti-lock braking system (ABS) cornering control are now precisely and accurately managed. An essential part of MV Agusta’s concept is the FLC “Front Lift Control” system, designed to maintain high safety standards without sacrificing the thrill of sports riding. So, the modern front lift controls do not prohibit wheelies but regulate and control them to provide the most significant acceleration and feeling. There is much more under the rider’s nose than merely “concealed” electronics that have taken a generational jump.
The new 5.5-inch TFT dashboard has a significant influence on the vehicle. The MV Ride App allows you to tailor every element of the bike, as well as the more “traditional” functionality, such as recording and sharing routes, straight from your smartphone. The mirroring feature also makes it possible to utilize the dashboard as a satnav, providing turn-by-turn instructions. There is now a new joystick control on the left-hand block that allows easy access to every feature.
Frame, More Comfortable and Efficient
After being widely regarded as one of the finest in the sector, the Brutale’s frame was further improved in a constant hunt for efficiency and control. ‘ Starting with the frame, new side plates have been added to increase the bike’s torsional and longitudinal stiffness. The rear suspension linkage on all Brutale 800 MY21 cars has also been upgraded. It now uses a single shock absorber with a redesigned spring and calibration to provide higher efficiency and comfort so that you still want to ride at the end of the day. It is a new evolution. Adjustments were made to the fork’s settings to match the new calibrations better.
A new kind of foam was used in the saddle, also built with comfort. IMU-integrated cornering lights help increase active safety by lighting up the interior of a corner as it tilts, thereby improving visibility. The instrument panel is shielded from the rider’s body by a tiny flyscreen. Its look and feel have been tweaked to make it more potent.
Design. Instant classic
The chassis, electronics, and engine have all been upgraded for maximum performance. Improved-comfort dual seats and lightweight sub-frames are the most recent technological advancements for an even better ride. To say nothing of a style that has resisted change.
Feel the Power of Sound
It is hard not to have an enjoyable time with the 140 HP and 86 Nm of torque on offer from the RR. Additionally, distribution improvements have resulted in a decrease in friction. New features include an improved exhaust system, as well as modified injectors to provide more excellent fuel atomization.
Latest Generation Electronics
Redefining norms of electronic controls, the new IMU platform designed mainly for MV Agusta has boosted traction control and FLC wheelie control without losing any safety. The new EAS 3.0 electronic gearbox is more precise and faster than the previous model.
Chassis Architecture at Its Best
With this in mind, additional side plates have been included in the frame to boost its lateral and longitudinal stiffness.
The re-calibrated fork and updated rear linkage improve progressiveness. The ongoing innovation of sports equipment has resulted in increased efficiency, comfort, and excitement.
When it comes to rapid weight shifts, the new Continental ABS MK100 with RLM can oversee it and a cornering function that allows for safe cornering and interaction with the Brutale range’s inertial framework.
