2021 MV Agusta Brutale 800 Rosso: Exotic On a Budget
The 2021 MV Agusta Brutale 800 Rosso is the first step when easing your way into the Brutale section of MV Agusta’s 2021 lineup of bikes. It’s the base model of the 800 series, and if you’re feeling dicey you can graduate to the 140hp version for more power.
The Brutale line of Italian motorcycles is arguably the best-of-the-best when it comes to mid-displacement naked bikes. MV Agusta takes pride in their eye for design, and this motorcycle provides you with all the staple visual identifiers you would come to expect from an MV Agusta motorcycle, but at a fraction of the cost.
The Brutale 800 Rosso comes standard with a de-tuned version of MV Agusta’s 798cc inline-three shared with many other of their models in the mid-displacement lineup. This engine gives the Brutale 800 Rosso a healthy 110 horsepower that can get you up to a maximum speed of 237 km/h. If you’re in the market for a motorcycle similar to the Rosso but with a little more grunt, MV Agusta produces the “Brutale 800 RR” that manages to squeeze an extra 30 horsepower from the same inline-three engine.
This bike comes ready with tons of tech like ABS, traction control, wheelie control and all of the modern features you would expect to find in a modern high-performance Italian machine.
The 2021 MV Agusta Brutale 800 Rosso starts at $14,559 USD / $11,990 EUR.
