After a bit of back and fore the final choice is the Brutale 1000 Serie Oro. MV’s Brutale was already an excellent bike and an exceptional platform to use in developing a new model.
Taking the Brutale platofrm and borrowing technology fro the brilliant F4 RC MV Agusta couldn’t really go wrong with this one and have developed the fastest naked street bike to come out of the Varese factory. That technology is needed to tame the beast resting within the stunning lines of the Serie Oro.
The 4-cylinder 998cc puts out 208hp at 13,450rpm and 115Nm of torque – when using the race kit – making it the most powerful bike in the class.
The tech package includes 8-level traction control, an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), ride by wire throttle, an up and down quickshifter, anti-wheelie, and launch control.
At the launch of the Brutale 800RR last April we said that the bike was ‘a very refreshing change in the category it competes in.’ The Series oro looks like it is goibg to be taking that a whole step further with a massive power boost and hopefully the same excellent Brutale handling. Claims from MV that the Serie Oro will handle as good as a superbike are very likely to be proven true given the heritage of the Brutale range.
Components you’d likely see on a superbike including Brembo Stylema calipers and 320mm discs, Ohlins electronically adjusted forks, an Ohlins TTX36 rear shock and a steering damper come as standard and, did you notice the wings?
Other bikes may make the new wing style a bit more obviously but MV have crafted these into the lines of the bike. Yet again MotoGP technology is making it to the street this time with MV Agusta – although they currently lack a team in the MotoGP paddock.
You’ll have to be pretty quick to get your hands on one of these though. The last time we checked the plans was to build only 300 Serie Oro bikes.
