2022 MV Agusta Brutale Rosso

2022 MV Agusta Brutale Rosso: Brawniness Never Looked So Red

The new KTM 890 Duke R Brutale Rosso is one novelty in naked motorcycles by the Italian manufacturer. Its new three-cylinder engine now produces 110 hp at 11,500 rpm, while the torque is 83 Nm at 7,600 rpm, 25% higher than the previous version. This increment for 2022 favors top speed and acceleration.

To help the rider control all this power, MV Agusta has equipped this naked bike with an MVICS system, Full Ride by Wire multimap, coupled with 8-level adjustable traction control. In addition, the Brutale Rosso comes equipped with an EAS 2.0 electronic gear change, both uphill and downhill, associated with a hydraulically controlled anti-rebound clutch.

In the cycle part, we must highlight the increase of 20 mm, while the steering advance increased from 95 to 103.5 mm. This bike mounts a Marzocchi fork in the front and a Sachs monoshock in the rear.

The braking system includes two floating discs at the front and a 4-piston Brembo caliper, while the rear wheel mounts a 220 mm disc with a double piston caliper. All this, together with the Bosch 9 PLUS ABS with RLM (Rear wheel Lift-up Mitigation), prevents the rear wheel from lifting during demanding braking.

The hallmark of this Brutale is its characteristic “rosso” color (Italian for red), the definitive color of competitions, providing the final design touch.

The 2022 MV Agusta Brutale Rosso starts at $15,398 USD / $17,152 CAD

Eight levels of traction control and four riding modes: Sport, Race, Rain and Custom. The different sides of an engine bursting with confidence can be selected via joystick, for maximum enjoyment in every driving situation.


The Rosso Range shares the same technical solutions as other MV models, such as the MotoGP-derived counter-rotating crankshaft and the removable gearbox. The structure has been revamped, thanks to a new progressive linkage rear as well as the new and improved-comfort saddle.


Power and scalability. Mission accomplished, thanks to the high-performing system on the front end boasting a pair of four-piston Brembo radial calipers. The new Continental ABS with cornering function improves performance and safety, even around curves.
