The MV Agusta Brutale 800 has always been known to be an exotic, mad machine. It’s a bike that demands every bit of your attention, focus and perception to make the most of its potential. The Brutale is as Italian as it gets, and is as aggressive as it is gorgeous. Most amateur riders would fear to get astride it. The Brutale 800 is a proper streetfighter motorcycle ushered into our market by Kinetic-owned MotoRoyale. What has to be seen is whether or not it’s worth the premium it costs over its rivals.


Packed neatly within the frame is a 798cc, three-cylinder engine that produces 107bhp and 83Nm of torque. The motor is liquid-cooled and comes paired to a 6-speed manual transmission. The MV Agusta Brutale 800 is BSIV-compliant.


The Brutale 800 is an outrageous looking machine. It has got the looks to turn heads on the roads like no other bike. The amount of attention to detail is fantastic. It features an oval-shaped LED headlamp, a gorgeously sculpted tank, a party exposed trellis frame, huge brake rotors, air ducts at the front, a single-sided swingarm, a fat rear tyre and triple exhausts. The rear fender has the rear indicators and number plate mounted on it. The bike has some great design elements, including the footpeg mounts. The instrument cluster is an all-digital display that houses various tell-tale lights below. The console includes a tachometer, gear position indicator, shift light, speedometer, time, riding mode along with ABS and traction control. The quality of the switchgear is great. In terms of dimensions, the Brutale 800 is 2045mm in length, 875mm in width and 1100mm in height. It gets a fuel-injected motor that’s taken care of by MVICS system and comes with a counter-rotating crankshaft, hydraulic slipper clutch and EAS 2.0 quick shifter. The power is delivered in a seamless manner. The engine never runs out of steam, even at 200kph. Open the throttle, and you can expect the front wheel to lift. Riding the Brutale 800 in the city is a bit of a challenge. As the revs rise, the bike screams, but in the lower RPMs, it sounds quite gruff. The clutch isn’t exactly what you’d call light, but the EAS 2.0 quick shifter works very well. It gets four riding modes: Normal, Sport, Custom and Rain. It also gets 8-level traction control and ABS. At 175kgs, the bike’s weight is manageable. The ground clearance, on the other hand, is 135mm, while the bike has a wheelbase of 1400mm and a seat height of 830mm.


The MV Agusta Brutale 800 has a fuel tank capacity of 16.5 litres. In terms of mileage, the bike is capable of returning 18kmpl by ARAI, in BSIV guise.

Mechanical Parts

Unfortunately, having focused more on the design of the bike, ergonomics seem to have taken a hit. The riding position is very demanding, making it difficult for short riders. The footpegs are set towards the rear, making it a bit cramped. The seat isn’t very comfortable either, but the handlebar is positioned at just the right height. The lack of a visor means wind blast is left unattended. And the pillion’s seat is short on room. The bike handles very well, thanks to the stiff suspension setup. It’s very stable at high speeds and the bike is very flickable around corners. The Pirelli Diablo tyres offer tremendous grip, and the brakes are powerful and confidence-inspiring. At the front, the bike rides on telescopic hydraulic forks, while the rear gets a single shock-absorber . As far as the chassis is concerned, it is built around a steel tubular trellis frame. The Brutale 800 runs on 120/70 ZR-17 tyres at the front and 180/55 ZR-17 tyres at the rear. Retardation duties are taken care of by disc brakes at the front and at the rear.


The bike comes loaded with a slew of features like LED headlamp and tail lamp, fully digital instrument display, digital trip meter, alloy wheels, traction control, ABS, pass light switch and engine kill switch.


The MV Agusta Brutale 800 is available in three shades like Blue, White and Red. Red is certainly a colour that is bound to be a favourite among young riders.
