2021 MV Agusta Brutale 800 RR

2021 MV Agusta Brutale 800 RR: The Gold Standard Of Italian Mid-Size Styling

The 2021 model year MV Agusta Brutale 800 RR is a step up from the “Rosso” version and brings you the full Italian motorcycle experience through this flagship naked mid-size.

Unlike its de-tuned Rosso brother, the Brutale 800 RR restores what is lost in the Rosso and provides the rider with the completely unlocked 798cc engine. Although they share engines, the RR manages to extract an extra 30 horsepower from the motor bringing the total power figures closer to 140 hp and 64. lb-ft of torque.

The Brutale 800 RR is the gold standard for mid-displacement exotic naked motorcycles. A good case can be argued that the Dragster line from MV Agusta carries a higher level of prestige as both models are built around the same power plant and framework, but at the end of the day, MV Agusta considers the Dragster as more of a “streetfighter” meaning the Brutale RR can take its rightful place as king of the mid-displacement nakeds.

The Brutale 800 RR brings riders a rich riding experience at a substantially high price tag, but you get what you’re paying for. Although the Brutale is a great looking bike with lots of thought being put into small stylistic details, MV Agusta definitely didn’t sleep on any of the electronic features. The Brutale 800 RR comes packed with electronic assists such as a total of eight traction control modes, four riding modes, Bosch ABS, fully adjustable suspension and a large TFT dash so the rider can conduct this electrical orchestra.

The 2021 MV Agusta Brutale 800 RR starts at $19,400 USD / $15,990 EUR.

2021 MV Agusta Brutale 800 RR Features


The new IMU inertial platform, developed exclusively for MV Agusta, has redefined the standards of quality for electronic controls: traction control is more precise than ever, while FLC wheelie control heightens the thrill of riding without sacrificing any safety. The new EAS 3.0 electronic gearbox offers improved precision and speed.


Even excellence can be improved upon: with this in mind, the frame features new side plates which increase lateral and longitudinal rigidity. The new rear linkage boosts progressiveness and works in harmony with the re-calibrated fork. Efficiency, comfort and a sporting thrill are the results of constant evolution.


The new Continental ABS MK100 with RLM means that even the sharpest and most sudden weight transfers can be managed safely.It includes a cornering function which enables safe breaking even on corners, as well as interfacing with the inertial platform designed specifically for the Brutale range.
