The new MV Agusta Brutale 1000 RS has just landed in Australia! Check out all the specifications below and head into your local dealership to find out more on pricing... Press release: MV Agusta.
The MV Agusta Brutale 1000 RS takes all the outstanding features of the Brutale 1000 RR to a more accessible level. The Brutale 1000 RS shares the same platform with the Brutale 1000 RR, and now MV Agusta have given it a new life for 2022.
The new MV Agusta Brutale 1000 RS is powered by an extraordinary engine, which adopts high-end materials. A clear example of this is the titanium connecting rods, a one-of-a-kind solution within the naked segment. Titanium is also used for both the intake and the exhaust valves. The central timing chain is the latest evolution of what was developed on the 1000 RR.
It adopts a further optimised camshaft timing and aimed at making the torque curve at med-low revs even more effective. The use of the DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) coating for the valve control tappets reduces friction and enhances reliability. This goal is achieved also thanks to the use of specific gears for the primary drive; the whole transmission is particularly resistant and reliable, especially in the extreme starts by Launch Control.
MAIN FEATURES OF THE BRUTALE 1000 RS
- Euro 5 / Low Friction Engine
- Redesigned Exhaust
- New IMU Inertial Platform
- ABS Continental with Cornering Function
- New Front and Rear Suspension
- New Rider Footboard Supports
- Re-Designed Foot-Pegs
- New Seat
The third generation EAS 3.0 (Electronic Assisted Shift) sees the introduction of an additional sensor, to ensure more precise and smoother shifting. The four-outlet exhaust, an unmistakable MV Agusta stylistic touch, is characterized by the sound-design of the main manifold in full compliance with the Euro 5 regulations.
State-of-the-art electronics of the new Brutale 1000 RS is the fruit of relentless development. The new IMU detects the motorcycle position in space and in real time, providing the control units with truly reliable data.
This means an extremely precise and effective management of all controls. Thanks to this platform, the FLC (Front Lift Control) traction and wheelie controls protect the safety of the rider, while the system remains “performance-oriented”, offering maximum acceleration in the specific conditions of use. The FLC, in particular, takes the wheelie under control instead of entirely preventing it, with the added benefit to improve performance and riding pleasure.
The new cornering ABS uses the MK100 Continental system, ensuring the best braking control even when cornering, and preventing low side crash. The 5.5in TFT panel, able to communicate with the MV Ride App, allows to set all the bike parameters directly from the smartphone; it also offers many exclusive features, such as the recording and sharing of route itinerary. Thanks to the mirroring function, it is possible to use the RS instrumentation with turn-by-turn navigation. Each function is easily accessible through the joystick positioned on the left block. Moreover, the TPMS tyre pressure monitoring sensor is available as an option.
The MV Agusta Brutale 1000 RS chassis is largely shared with the Brutale 1000 RR. The adoption of mechanical suspension, namely the Marzocchi fork and the Sachs single shock absorber, represents the optimal formula capable to cover a variety of use. The suspension adjustment range is wide and offers the rider the possibility to effectively customise the setting, according to your own taste and riding situation; ease of adjustment represents another strong point of the components selected.
