The MV Agusta 2022 Brutale 1000 Nurburgring Naked Bike in Germany is renowned as one of racing’s most memorable venues. A 3.6-mile track like Silverstone is now considered lengthy. The Nordschleife, or “North Loop,” is one of the world’s most difficult courses, measuring between 13 and 15 miles from beginning to end (depending on configuration). It has an incredible series of blind curves, rises, and drops. If a motorbike will bear this magnificent stretch of land’s name, it had better be deserving.
MV Agusta 2022 Brutale 1000 Nurburgring Naked Bike – Features and Specs
With the new Brutale 1000 RR Nurburgring from MV Agusta, you can rest easy knowing that you’ll never be suspected of bringing a knife to a gunfight. With a particular emphasis on the Brutale 1000 series, MV has been using the technical and performance credentials that its current crop of 1,000cc four-cylinder models can exhibit since 2020. The new Brutale 1000 Nurburgring maintains MV’s heritage of numbered limited editions: just 150 will be produced. These motorcycles are authentic naked superbikes. It is the real stuff, notwithstanding the doubts of some riders who use such services. The Nurburgring variant, based on the very popular Brutale 1000 RR, provides even superior on-track performance by shedding 7 pounds off the primary vehicle (the good news is even better with the racing kit—more on that in a second). What matters more, however, is where the weight was reduced.
It’s the wheels, in a nutshell. The Nurburgring bears less unsprung weight thanks to using a set of BST carbon fiber wheels. The decrease in gyroscopic flywheel inertia with the rims is an additional advantage, one that becomes better with speed. The steering responsiveness and lap times both significantly improve as a result of this.
The racing gear from MV might help you lose even more weight. It comes as standard equipment with the bike but is not set up. The specialized ECU tuning and the racing-spec 4-into-2-into-1 Arrow titanium exhaust system increase output to 215 horsepower at 13,200 rpm. The bike weighs 390 pounds less overall thanks to the exhaust, which is impressive for a vehicle of this caliber.
The Brutale 1000 RR’s fundamental frame geometry and structure are used on the Nurburgring, albeit with some significant componentry improvements. A specially tuned, electronically controlled 43mm male-slider Ohlins NIX EC telework with TIN-plated stanchion tubes provides the front suspension for optimal smoothness. The EC TTX rear shock absorber, similarly electronically controlled and specially tuned, is also offered by Ohlins.
The Swedish company also provides the MV Agusta 2022 Brutale 1000 Nurburgring Naked Bike’s electronically controlled steering damper. The braking system is entirely Brembo, with dual front 320mm discs and four-piston Stylema Monoblock calipers, and a single 220mm rotor and two-piston caliper for the rear. The MK 100 ABS from Continental controls everything, and the whole electronics package is the same top-notch selection that the most recent Brutale 1000 family provides.
The Nurburgring receives some well-done visuals, although the main lines are the same as the Brutale 1000 RR. We believe that MV’s neat, austere, single-color styling is deserving of a Concours d’elegance. The headlight’s tiny spoiler, the only change to the bodywork, is intended to create a little downforce and deflect some of the wind’s force away from the rider’s helmet. The new MV Agusta Brutale 1000 Nurburgring is a believable “limited edition” model that is worthwhile collecting thanks to a strong, Euro 5-homologated four-cylinder engine and a reasonable overall weight. The cost in Italy is a “strong” 32,200 euros, which is now a little over $37,000.
MV Agusta 2022 Brutale 1000 Nurburgring Naked Bike – Facts
The inline-4 engine in the MV Agusta 2022 Brutale 1000 Nurburgring Naked Bike is strong, producing 208 horsepower at 13,000 rpm. The cognoscenti will, of course, put on the accompanying Racing Kit to increase the output to 215 horsepower at 13,200 rpm if that isn’t enough. You go over 14k when you overrev. Additionally, there is a slipper clutch and a six-speed cassette gearbox with a third-generation quick shifter. MV Agusta won’t specify how much, but the top speed is more than 186 mph.
The Racing Kit is packaged neatly and includes the following items inside:
- ECU with Racing Kit map; Arrow full-titanium exhaust system with a single silencer
- Silencer cover made of carbon fiber
- Carbon fiber cover for the passenger seat
- Documentation for the numbered edition of the certificate of origin
Winglets are included in the plastic packaging even though there is no fairing.
Clip-ons make the typically upright Brutale’s ergonomics more café-like.
The 2022 MV Agusta Brutale 1000 Nürburgring is well-representative of carbon fiber, not simply in black. There is no carbon offset for this motorbike. These are the brief items:
- Air box cover
- Clutch cover
- Dashboard wiring cover
- Fuel tank central panels (left and right)
- Gearbox cover
- Headlight cover
- Wheels (in copper)
CNC-machined hubs are fitted to the carbon fiber wheels. Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tires are put on the rims by MV Augusta.
The Nürburgring is more than 13 pounds lighter than the factory version, thanks to the WBSK Racing Kit. Although MV Agusta withholds its wet weight claim, we’d like to share it with you. If you need an exact weight, it’s probably about 425 pounds when the 4.2-gallon gasoline tank is filled to the maximum with high-test.
As a semi-active unit, Ohlins receives the call for suspension obligations. The sliders of the NIX EC fork have a TIN coating. A linkage mechanism assists EC TTX shock. Only the damping of the suspension may be electronically adjusted. Preload on the springs is manually adjusted. Additionally, there is an electronic Ohlins steering damper that can be manually or automatically changed.
The electronics kit is comprehensive. A quick shifter, steering damper, semi-active suspension, and cornering-aware Continental MK100 ABS are also included. Traction (eights level plus off), wheelie, launch, and cruise are all controlled by the controlling gang. Along with the track-specific mode included with the Racing Kit, there are four other power settings. The 5.5-inch TFT dash connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth and the MV Ride app.
For 2022, the motor receives improvements similar to what we’ve seen on earlier Brutale 1000s. New cam profiles and an upgraded header have increased torque output. All 16 valves and the connecting rod are made of titanium. The new DLC-coated tappets and sintered valve guides minimize friction in the top end—all this power and compatibility with Euro 5.
Nürburgring is a piece of beauty, as it has always been with MV Agusta. The color and decorations are gorgeous, and the sturdy components don’t sacrifice either form or utility. Matt Intense Silver/Matt Metallic Dark Grey and Matt Mamba Red is the color.
The pricing in US dollars for the 2022 MV Agusta Brutale 1000 Nürburgring is unknown. However, we can tell you that it will cost you €38,990 ($45,100) based on the currency rate in effect on the day of publishing. There are just 150 examples being created, so ask your dealer regarding availability and delivery.
