MV debuted the appropriately-named Brutale in 2001 with the Andrea Goggi-developed F4 motor enveloped in an aggressive, naked design penned by Massimo Tamburini. It wasn’t as fast as other 750s of the time, but the styling and handling earned many fans – MCN called it “arguably the most stunning roadster type motorbike anyone can own.”
As it goes in the world of motorcycling, MV continually stuffed larger engines into the Brutale frame – by 2007 the top of the line powerplant was displacing 1,078cc. 2009 was the last year of Tamburini’s design, by which point the motor was putting out stupendous-for-a-naked-bike 154 horsepower through a six-speed transmission.
But the Brutale wasn’t just about power. Belying the name were top notch components designed to keep you in control – Brembo Monobloc calipers, gigantic 50mm Marzocchi forks, fully-adjustable Sachs shock, and adjustable rearsets.
This example (VIN: ZCGJBFVU89V014181) is being offered by a friend of Iconic who has owned the bike for the last six years.
We have it on display at our headquarters in Marina del Rey, California for anyone that would like to check it out in person. It shows 3,891 miles on the odometer, and it is on a Michigan title.
Upgraded goodies include a full titanium MV Agusta Corsa exhaust, Ohlins rear shock, and a Moto Corse titanium ride height adjusting rod. It’s been maintained by Pro Italia and it got a new battery a few months ago.
There are a few minor cosmetic issues that have been detailed in the photo album including scratches on the tank, tail, and on the lower triples.
There is also a scratch on the top exhaust.
This beautiful Italian is ready for thousands more miles of wind-in-your-face thrills. Have any Brutale stories or questions? Let us know in the comments!
