2013 MV Agusta F3 Oro

Photos, Review and Specifications

MV Agusta formally announces that the much awaited new F3 “Serie Oro”. In keeping with the traditions of the brand the limited edition “Serie Oro” version appeals to collectors and enthusiasts of Italian engineering excellence. These exclusive models, of which a maximum of 200 examples will be built only to special order, differ from the standard version via a multitude of details, both in terms of aesthetics and engineering. The F3 Serie Oro is immediately recognized by the gold frame plates and single-sided swing arm, as well as the forged aluminum wheels painted the same color. The deliberately minimalist graphics subtly emphasize the lines of the bike, as well as identifying it. The sensuous bodywork design is characterised by a special paint scheme which accentuates its shapely form; the final result is a striking reinterpretation of the traditional MV Agusta silver and red livery. Even the rear view mirrors are painted, and the seat subframe matches the colour of the F3s tubular space-frame. The clutch cover and the frame plates are machine polished, while the alternator cover is completely milled from a billet, providing these components with the hand-made feel that makes each MV unique.

2013 MV Agusta F3 Oro Review

The attention to detail extends to the air intakes and cooling exits, which have a gold finish, as well as the DID Gold final drive chain. The completely handmade covering of both rider and passenger seats employs real leather and Alcantara®, giving the Serie Oro the ultimate touch of elegance. As usual with MV Agusta Serie Oro models, a gold plate mounted on the upper triple clamp identifying each individually numbered bike, completes this picture of exclusivity. Several mechanical parts are unique to the Serie Oro models, exemplified by the outstanding Brembo brake system, with radially-mounted Monobloc calipers gripping Racing discs. Fully adjustable Öhlins upside down forks, TTX shock and steering damper collectively represent the ultimate in suspension. The space-frame chassis and seat sub-frame are TIG-welded, guaranteeing a strong, stiff structure and a highly refined aesthetic appearance. With the objective of allowing each rider to optimise the riding position, the footrests and their mounting plates are billet machined, and are fully adjustable, as are the gear change and rear brake levers. The F3s carbon fibre components add a unique richness to the bike. The front and rear mudguards, dashboard cover, air box side and intake covers, fairing inserts, both upper and lower chain guards, Swingarm protector cover, sprocket cover, fairing lower, and stacked exhaust outlets are all manufactured in this lightweight, good looking material, each one carefully manufactured and covered with a transparent protective finish.

2013 MV Agusta F3 Oro Features and Benefits

ENGINE

The powerplant of the new F3, an inline 675cc three cylinder, plays homage to the most victorious motorcycle brand in the word. With this layout MV raced and won an unprecedented number of races and world championship titles. This iconic engine has now returned in the form of an avant-garde middle weight supersport with performance technical solutions based on the demands of Claudio Castiglioni who is convinced that this is the ideal architecture for a middle weight supersport.

The engine is the most compact, incredible short and narrow engine ever seen in this category. The powerplant is incredibly modern in design, technologically advanced and capable of generating the most power ever seen in this category. One of the numerous technical features is the counter-rotating crankshaft, never before seen on a production supersport engine.

ELECTRONICS

The most advanced electronic engine control system has been designed specifically for this extraordinary three cylinder. For the first time on an MV (and in the middle weight supersport category) there is Ride By Wire with multi-maps that optimize the power output in all riding conditions. The MV TC traction control has been incorporated into the engine control system raising the dynamic control to a new level on the F3.

CHASSIS

As always, those who ride MV Agusta’s have become accustomed to having the very best components and the maximum performance from the chassis. The new F3 follows this tradition with a level of quality that exceeds most of the 1000cc superbikes on the market. As with all previous MV’s, the advanced frame design incorporates a mix of steel tubing and aluminum side plates that wrap around the ultra compact engine offering a level of compactness never before seen on a supersport motorcycle. The compact engine dimensions left the maximum liberty to design the most advanced chassis on the market with an exceptionally long single sided swingarm that guarantees traction and feedback to the rider. The components, as always, are of the highest quality. The Marzocchi front fork is completely adjustable as well as the Sachs rear shock. The front brake system consists of a Nissin radial master cylinder and Brembo radial calipers and discs. It is simply the best and the new standard by which all other middleweight supersport bikes will be judged.

THREE CYLINDERS, MADE IN ITALY

The dominance of MV Agusta in the motorcycle Grand Prix’s is in part due to their most victorious engine design. Of the 37 world titles won by the bikes from Cascina Costa, 10 are attributed to the bikes with the inline three cylinder engines. MV Agusta was the first motorcycle manufacturer in the world to believe in this technical solution, a risk that paid off with countless victories. The three cylinder project began as a twin cam 350 followed by a 500cc version, these bikes were legendary for their power as well as their lighter weight and improved aerodynamics compared to the 4 cylinder competition.

The project was designed at the request of Count Agusta, developed on the race track by Giacomo Agostini and raced by the greatest champions of all time winning immediately. Initially the 350 twin cam, followed by the 500 twin cam, these motorcycles became the reference point for all of the other manufacturers as they offered unmatched performance allowing them to dominate the competition. This dominance was translated into 10 world championship titles, 9 Italian championships and 215 race wins. The MV three cylinder was a motorcycle unequaled by the competition by applying technology that was advanced for its time and destined to become the future for all high performance engines.

Even today, the classic three cylinder MV Agusta is an example for the rational application of technology and pure styling. A style so unique that it transcends to the soul of the MV’s of today. Having to choose which engine layout would power the new MV Agusta middle weight, Claudio Castiglioni chose the most rational configuration of the three cylinder. A choice that is technically advanced while at the same time respects the long history of MV Agusta and their countless successes with this engine layout. Today, as well as in the past, the F3 takes advantage of a very compact design, advanced technology and unparalleled power. With the new F3, history and future are fused into a single entity giving form to the most beautiful and technologically advanced “600”, a motorcycle that clearly marks the beginning of a new era.

2013 F3 675 | MV Agusta Motorcycle Insurance Information |

2013 MV Agusta F3 675 Review

THE NEW LEADER OF THE SUPERSPORT CATEGORY

After being elected the “Most beautiful 600 in the world”, the MV Agusta F3 675 is now ready to become the new reference both on the street and on the track. This Supersport boasts an ultra-advanced chassis and vehicle dynamics control unit MVICS (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System), that is on par with the most advanced Superbikes.

2013 MV Agusta F3 675 Review

The MV Agusta F3 675 is a revolutionary motorcycle offering extreme emotions to the rider on the street and on the track. The three cylinder engine utilizes a revolutionary counter-rotating crankshaft, a solution that has only been previously seen on Moto GP motorcycles. Together with the most compact and light weight layout ever seen on a Supersport bike, these characteristics make the new F3 675 one of the best handling and most sophisticated Supersport motorcycles.

The MV Agusta F3 675 engine is the most advanced and powerful middle weight engine ever produced. It is an ultra-compact in-line three cylinder with the perfect balance between advanced mechanical engineering, advanced materials and electronic technology. Thanks to the MVICS system it is the first middleweight motorcycle with Full Ride by Wire engine controls. It includes 4 pre-set engine maps, one personally tunable map, and an 8 level traction control.

The chassis is also incredibly advanced. Studied and designed to obtain the maximum dynamic performance, it was created to have optimum rigidity and when compared to the other motorcycles in this category, offers an unparalleled level of feedback during all riding conditions. The development of the style of the MV Agusta F3 675 was based on the core philosophy that has always characterized all previous MV’s: the perfect balance between form and function that creates an object that is unique not only for its beauty but also in its effectiveness.

2013 MV Agusta F3 675 Features and Benefits

Engine
The 3 cylinder layout has won a record number of world championships for MV Agusta, and the new 3 cylinder 675 pays homage to that history. This new engine employs the most advanced technical solutions to achieve top performance.

Only MV Agusta has been able to develop an incredibly short and narrow, ultra-compact engine due to the unique layout of its internal organs. Utilizing a 79mm bore, a super-short stroke of 45,9mm the MV Agusta 3 cylinder engine is extremely over-square and able to rev the highest levels ever achieved by three cylinder sports bike. It is an ultra-modern, extremely advanced engine capable of 128 hp at 14.500 rpm and 71 Nm of torque at 10.600 rpm. This level of performance has never before been available in this category and it is on par with the performance of a number of 4 cylinder engines thanks to a 15.000 rpm limit. For the first time ever, a production motorcycle utilizes a counter-rotating crankshaft that contributes to its perfect dynamic balance as well as increasing the lightning quick handling of the motorcycle.

Ultra-compact dimensions, reduced weight best in class performance are the characteristics that make the engine of the new MV Agusta F3 675 the new reference in the supersports class. An engine destined to become the new benchmark of supersport engines thanks to innovative technical solutions such as the use of a single shell mold casting resulting in the “closed deck” integration of the cylinders into the crankcase, the use of titanium both for the intake and exhaust valves and the new MVICS system. Another unique feature is the integrate oil and water system: the pump system (water and oil) and passages are placed entirely inside the crankcase castings offering both performance and styling advantages to the most powerful Italian 3 cylinder ever produced.

With this layout MV raced and won an unprecedented number of races and world championship titles. Today the 3-cylinder engine has returned in the form of a Supersport with the most advanced technical solutions and performance.

Electronics
The most advanced electronic engine control system ever seen on a Supersport has been designed specifically for this extraordinary new three cylinder. A fuel injection system that is extremely sophisticated using a two fuel injectors per cylinder coupled with a throttle body employing 50mm throttle valves, a new record for a Supersport! The F3 675 introduces for the first time the MVICS system that allows the engine to unleash a record level of power and control in every situation. The rider can select one of the 4 available maps, or customize an additional map to obtain the power delivery desired. With the MVICS system it is possible to generate a perfect harmony between the power delivery and the traction control. As with every MV Agusta the Traction Control offers 8 levels of adjustment and is now accessible through the input on the left handlebar and the dashboard interface. This system is incredibly advanced and can be custom tailored by the rider with a series of optional MV Agusta Special Parts:

- Vehicle lean sensor capable of reading all of the vehicle inclination data. This interfaces with the traction control and engine control algorithms effectively reading the wheel slip during all angles of lean and then adjusting the throttle opening, spark advance and fuel delivery to ensure the optimal safety and acceleration in all dynamic conditions
- Launch Control which permits the optimum performance during starts and offering the maximum acceleration possible
- Anti-wheeling which permits the optimization of the vehicle acceleration
- MV Agusta EAS (Electronically Assisted Shift) which allows incredibly rapid shifting without ever having to close the throttle or employ the clutch.

Chassis
As always, those who ride MV Agusta’s have become accustomed to having the very best components and maximum performance from the chassis. The new F3 675 follows this tradition with a level of quality that exceeds most of the 1000cc superbikes on the market. As with all previous MV’s, the advanced frame design incorporates a mix of steel tubing and aluminum side plates that wrap around the ultra-compact engine offering a level of compactness never before seen on a supersport motorcycle. The compact engine dimensions left the maximum liberty to design the most advanced chassis on the market with an exceptionally long single sided swingarm that guarantees traction and feedback to the rider. All of this encapsulated in a 1,380 mm wheelbase with a 173 kg weight that has set a new record for the Supersport category. The components, as always, are of the highest quality. The Marzocchi 43mm front fork is completely adjustable as well as the Sachs piggy-back rear shock. The front brake system consists of a Nissin radial master cylinder, Brembo radial calipers and 320 mm discs all coupled to ultra-light aluminum wheels that allows the F3 675 to offer handling never before experienced on a Supersport motorcycle.

HUSQVARNA CR AND SM 50
THE NEW MINI CROSS AND MOTARD FROM HUSQVARNA

The essence of a real dirt bike and supermotard in miniature. This is the nature of the new Husqvarna CR and SM 50, the “mini” that have everything you need to make your debut as a real rider.

Liquid cooled two stroke engines, disc brakes, adjustable suspensions, steel chassis with the same shape as the Husqvarna racing bike, single cylinder engine with dual clutch transmission depending on the driver's expertise and competitiveness.

The line is the same as the Husqvarna dirt bike and Supermotard; with the classic white/red colours for the CR version and white for the SM one, just like the bike that Antoine Meo rides in the Enduro world championship and Adrien Chareyre rides in Supermoto.

The framework is in CrMo steel tubes with rectangular, circular and oval section; the most visible section as it connects the upper beam to the hub. The rear frame is detachable.

The fork is also in CrMo steel and supports a dual piston brake caliper in forged and anodized aluminium. The rear brake disc has a diameter of 140 mm while the front one has a diameter of 160 mm with race replica "daisy" design.

Front safety is guaranteed by a system with Formula radial pump in forged and anodized aluminium with adjustable aluminium lever.

The handlebar, with practical Husqvarna personalized pads, has a diameter of 22 mm.

As regards suspension, the Marzocchi fork has 32 mm diameter piston rods and 185 mm stroke.

The Sachs shock absorber has a wheel stroke of 200 mm , adjustable spring preload and Hydraulic rebound.

The front wheel is 12” the back one is 10” with aluminium rims, while SM version has a different colour, different sized front wheel (10”) and racing slick tyres.

As regards the engine, both versions are fitted with a liquid cooled two stroke 50 cc engine which supplies 11.2 HP at 10,500 rpm.

The speed ratio is single gear with adjustable centrifugal dual clutch transmission: one configuration for learner riders and one for experts.

The carburettor is a 19 mm Dell’Orto PHBG. The fuel tank has a capacity of 2.7 litres.

Thanks to the stability offered by the steel framework, the over-dimensioned suspensions and the disc brake system, the CR/SM 50 sets new standards in terms of safety and at the same time represents the starting point for tomorrow’s motocross , enduro and supermoto champions.

2013 MV Agusta Brutale 675 Review

Instant Emotions.

In all driving conditions, on any road, Brutale 675 is the new benchmark among the naked supersports thanks to the most advanced electronics, the engine is always ready to meet your desires. And the power is transferred to the asphalt in the most effective and safe way possible.

The single side swingarm is designed to be lightweight, beautiful, and engineered to transmit the power of the engine to the tarmac. It is linked to the beautiful main frame made of a tubular steel trellis with aluminum side plates. The suspension of the Brutale 675 is state of the art, perfectly balanced to meet the most demanding curves as well as supple to devour the pavement of the city without ever losing his composure.

The chassis components combine to let you savor every moment of the unmistakable driving pleasure of an MV Agusta. The engine crankcase has "closed deck" and is equipped with counter-rotating crankshaft, a solution used previously only in MotoGP, to provide the best dynamic balance. More balanced equates to more fun. 108.5 hp at maximum power: the three short-stroke cylinders have been tuned to offer extraordinary response to throttle inputs. The engine has been coupled with the most advanced electronics, offering 4 different mode maps in addition to 8 levels for the traction control. Thanks to the revolutionary MVCIS (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System) the Brutale 675 is ready to dominate every situation.

Organ pipes: the finest tradition of the MV exhaust system is a marvel of beauty and efficiency. Offering maximum performance without sacrificing, even for a moment, the supreme elegance of MV Agusta while letting you enjoying the acute sound of the compact yet profound three-cylinder engine. Compact, attention to every detail, placed under the swingarm for the benefit of the handling of the bike, the exhaust system is an example of superior design and function.

With the introduction of the Brutale line, MV Agusta has created the reference point of the large displacement naked category offering a product with a truly unique desing and superbike level performance.

MV AGUSTA BRUTALE 675. The new MV Agusta for everyone.

Today, the Brutale family is about to grow with the introduction of a completely new model that is destined to become the reference in the middle-weight category. The Brutale 675 is born, a bike that pays tribute to the advant guard styling of the original Brutale and offering performance never before available in this market segment.

The incredibly refined mechanical design has been matched with an ultratechnological chassis makes the new Brutale 675 a guaranteed success. An innovative project, exclusive while at the same time accessible to all passionate motorcyclists with various levels of experience. This motorcycle is capable of satisfying even the most demanding riders as well as those that are new to the sport. From street to track, the MV Agusta Brutale 675 is able to take on any situation in stride and offer the pleasure, excitement and emotion that is typically MV.

Light, agile and power above and beyond that offered by the competition, the MV Agusta Brutale has a revolutionary engine that is the most advanced in the middle-weight segment. The new in-line three cylinder power plant is derived directly from the F3 and sets new records for compactness and the application of technical solutions only previously seen on MotoGp motorcycles such as advanced electronics with the MVICS (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System), a system that integrates the Full Ride By Wire throttle control with integral multi-maps for the engine and traction control. Power output is a staggering 108,5 hp at 12.500 rpm and a torque curve that is more similar to a liter bike rather than a supersport.

The chassis, as is the MV Agusta tradition, is without rivals in this category. The frame is a mix of steel tubing and aluminum components that offers a level of rigidity that is destined to make it the reference in its class. At only 167 kg dry, the MV Agusta Brutale 675 can satisfy even the most demanding of riders. The extremely light weight coupled with the high power output of the engine will allow the Brutale 675 to accompany new riders from the beginning of their adventure on two wheels all the way to the
peak of their riding capabilities.

2013 MV Agusta Brutale 675 Features and Benefits

In detail, the principle characteristics of the MV Agusta Brutale 675 are:
• Ultra-compact three cylinder engine with counter-rotating crankshaft
• Electronic technology: MVICS (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System)
• Traction control with 8 levels of adjustment
• Frame with a mixture of steel and aluminum components
• Single-sided rear swingarm with a Sachs rear shock
• 43 mm upside-down front forks
• Racing brakes with radial calipers

DESIGN

As with all MV Agusta products, the Brutale 675 is characterized with a truly unique style where even the smallest detail was fretted over. For and function come together to create perfection.

The integration of the fuel tank, seat and tail section is a fulcrum of the design of the Brutale 675 and demonstrates the extreme compactness of the bike. The rider becomes an integrated component of the bike, perfectly inserted into the ultra-short and agile chassis with the narrowest mid-section ever seen on a production supersport that allow all riders to easily place their feet securely on the ground. These details help the rider to immediately become one with the motorcycle and develop the perfect feeling between the Brutale 675 and the pilot. The bike immediately gives the impression that the rider has always ridden this bike as the ergonomics are in perfect harmony with the rider.

The tail-section is extremely compact, the headlight is classic Brutale and the digital dashboard all contribute to making the MV Agusta Brutale 675 exceptionally unique.

ENGINE

The in-line 675cc three cylinder engine, which made its debut in the supersport F3, finds an ideal position within the Brutale 675 after receiving a number of modifications that adapts it perfectly to sport/street use that typifies the Brutale.

The engine is incredibly narrow and shorter than any of its competitors thanks to a unique layout of the internal components. With a large 79mm bore and an ultra-short 45,9mm stroke, the three cylinder MV Agusta is a power plant with an extremely oversquare layout that allows it to rev to previously unheard of levels.

The Brutale 675 has a maximum power of 108,5 hp at 12.500 rpm and 65 Nm of torque at 12.000 rpm, but even more important is the huge spread of power and torque throughout the entire rev range and the over-rev after max power that allow the rider to hold a gear even longer if required. Even more important than the peak power is the fact that it is very linear and controllable in all situations. Thanks to this configuration, the three cylinder is an engine capable of taking on city traffic as well as screaming up your favorite mountain road.

As with the F3, the Brutale 675 utilizes a counter-rotating crankshaft, which has only been seen on MotoGp motorcycles, this important design feature helps the Brutale reach previously unreached levels of dynamic balance and ease of handling.

The compact dimensions and reduced weight of the engine place it at the top of the naked category and make the MV Agusta Brutale 675 truly unique, destined to become a milestone thanks to the technical solutions incorporated such as the closed deck shell mold cast crankcase with integrated cylinders and the MVICS.

Another important detail is the fact that the oil and water pumps and circuits have been completely integrated into the crankcases which has a big impact on efficiency and the clean lines that are fundamental on a naked bike. Brutale 675, the most powerful Italian three cylinder ever.

ELECTRONICS

The most advanced electronic engine control system ever seen on a middleweight naked has been designed specifically for this extraordinary new three cylinder. A system of fuel injection that is extremely sophisticated with a 47 mm throttle body for perfect combustion at all rpm’s.

The MVICS system that allows the engine to unleash a record level of power and control in every situation. The rider can select one of the 4 maps available, or customize an additional map to obtain the power delivery desired.

With the MVICS system it was possible to generate a perfect harmony between the power delivery and the traction control which offers 8 levels of adjustment and is accessible through the input on the left handlebar and dashboard interface.

FRAME

The Brutale 675 confirms the fact that MV Agusta is always capable of developing an extremely easy and intuitive chassis while at the same time offering the maximum performance. The upper section is fabricated from steel tubes and connected to the aluminum side plates which mate with the engine.

The realization of all new MV Agusta models is a synergy between the work of the chassis and engine designers. The ultra-short engine allowed the chassis designers to develop an extremely short and agile bike mated with a long single-sided swingarm that helps put the power to the ground.

SUSPENSION

The optimum performance of the suspension was a very important point during the development of the Brutale 675. Even a “simple” naked motorcycle needs to have the best that the market offers in terms of suspension performance.

The 43 mm upside-down front forks offer feedback that leads the competition and allow the rider to easily take on even the most challenging city streets or tortuous mountain roads with confidence. The rear suspension works through a progressive linkage and has adjustable spring pre-load with 119 mm of rear wheel travel.

BRAKES

The best technology currently available is utilized on the MV Agusta Brutale 675, including Brembo radial calipers and Nissin master cylinders with integrated reservoirs underlining the supersport intentions of the project.

The 320mm front disks are the same as those employed on the F3 and offer incredible stopping power that is also completely controllable in all situations.

The new Brutale 675 is available in 3 colors combinations: red/silver, pearl white/matt gold and matt Magno grey/matt antrhrocite

2012 Husaberg TE125 Review

+ closed cartridge forks
+ unrivalled responsiveness
+ constant damping throughout the entire suspension travel
+ unbeatable power-to-weight ratio typical of a two-stroke
+ the more difficult the terrain, the greater the benefit
+ minimum costs of acquisition and maintenance
+ uncomplicated, tried and tested technology as the basis for maximum enduro fun

2012 Husaberg TE125 Features and Benefits

New handlebars from Neken, with the same shape as before, guarantees supreme stiffness and safety.

Classy triple clamps machined from a single piece are fitted as standard to all Husaberg models. This results in precise clamping of the fork tubes, which supports the flawless function of the forks.

The polyethylene fuel tank on the TE models has been designed for sufficient range combined with enduro ergonomics and hence conveys optimum contact with the bike. With an 11 litre capacity, it is big enough for completing the longest race stages with ease and also allows extended enduro tours.

Unbeatable high-end chassis with sophisticated closed-cartridge technology - extremely sensitive + optimal damping characteristics, just like the "big bikes" + tuned to low weight

The clever liquid cooling system leads the water directly from the cylinder head through the frame triangle via a T-piece and straight to the radiators. This means simple mounting of the radiators, plenty of space under the fuel tank and therefore unhindered air circulation.

The nickel-plated exhaust pipe has been specially designed for enduro use and contributes significantly to the controllable rideability combined with the highest levels of performance. The aluminium main silencer manufactured in a two-component process is fastened perfectly to the subframe with a strong plastic sleeve.

The high-volume airbox optimally provides the engine with fresh, clean air. The generously sized Twin-Air foam air filter can be changed in a matter of seconds - with no tools at all.

A stable and at the same time extremely lightweight design made from high-quality chrome molybdenum steel tubes and profiles ensures that the central tube frame offers an ideal level of strength and flex. This guarantees the greatest degree of directional stability and torsional rigidity.

State-of-the-art braking technology from Brembo. A lightweight, floating two-piston brake caliper at the front and a compact single-piston floating caliper at the rear, combined with ultra-light Wave brake discs, provide for best possible application and maximum braking performance.

New cylinder for even more torque at low revs (TE 300) + very rideable power development + spontaneous punch from low revs for tremendous rear wheel traction + more than enough power in the upper rev range to be able to climb the steepest of slopes with the greatest of ease + engine speed-dependent exhaust control with new reed valve block for even better throttle response: with two additionally supplied control springs that provide adjustable characteristics for power development that can be tuned to be softer and more traction-oriented or more aggressive for spontaneous power.

The digital ignition is factory-fitted with a new and more compact ignition curve switch on the handlebars that allows selection of two different ignition curves while riding + the rider can choose between "soft" - i.e. smoother, more traction-oriented performance - or "aggressive" with noticeably more spontaneous performance.

Electric starter for hardcore enduro use, which, thanks to an extremely clever patent, is hidden behind the exhaust, saving space and well protected, perfect for when the strength of the rider dwindles in treacherous terrain.

Convenient hydraulic clutch actuation from Brembo, optimum application, specially designed for two-stroke characteristics, always with a precise pressure point.

+ compact and extra-lightweight 2-stroke engine with a displacement of 249 cc, 293.2 cc or now with 124.8 cc + enduro-specific engine characteristics + exhaust control regulated by centrifugal force and adjustable ignition allow tuning of the engine characteristics to the needs of the rider or the terrain + robust six-speed transmission designed precisely for real enduro use + smooth hydraulic clutch + patented electric starter

Super-slim ergonomics for optimum freedom of movement, perfect engagement between the rider and the bike enables playful handling, typical Husaberg appearance and fresh graphics

2013 Brutale 800 Review

A motorcycle capable of satisfying the most demanding of motorcycle enthusiasts.

Brutale three-cylinder means handling, extreme agility, and absolute ease of use. Now with the new engine power and torque comparable to a 1.000cc, and with a weight of only 167 kg, the 800 Brutale offers an unique power to weight ratio. Aside from the new engine, the Brutale 800 offers a new adjustable suspension allowing the riders complete personalisation.

A dependable advanced electronics package unique within this category: MVICS (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System), the integrated management system of the vehicle, includes the first Full Ride by Wire with multi-map and integrated traction control. Offering optimised delivery at all engine speeds, maximum engine efficiency in terms of fuel consumption, and of course the opportunity to select different engine characteristics, choosing from the four available maps: three pre-sets, one personalised. Traction control also ensures safety and performance on any road or track surface, allowing the driver to concentrate entirely on riding. The three-cylinder engine, which debuted on the supersport F3 675, forms the basis for the technological progress in its class, thanks to exclusive technical solutions such as the counter-rotating crankshaft, used in MotoGP, but never before seen on a production bike. The frame performance is guaranteed, thanks to MV Agusta’ s unique mixed structure: the front section of steel tube trellis combined with two light aluminium alloy plates, and a sculpted single-arm rear suspension.

2013 Brutale 800 Features and Benefits

The characteristics
In detail, the main features of MV Agusta Brutale 800 are:
• three-cylinder in-line engine with counter-rotating crankshaft
• Technology MVICS (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System)
• Traction control adjustable on 8 levels
• Frame structure mixed steel trellis and aluminium plates for high torsional rigidity
• Single-sided swingarm with adjustable rear shock absorber
• Upside down adjustable 43mm front fork
• Racing radial front callipers

The design
MV Agusta Brutale 800 is distinctive at first glance. A perfect combination of aesthetics, functionality, design and ergonomics. Form and substance. Unique in its kind, this three-cylinder is aligned with the standards of excellence of the Brutale 675, yet remains distinctive with new graphics and further detail enhancements. The overall compactness is visually impressive, with the mechanical components dominating; the three-cylinder engine is almost completely exposed to view, embraced by the distinctive frame and compact exhaust system. The silencer is modelled in such a way as to ensure maximum capacity and efficiency while remaining perfectly integrated. The tailpiece is essential yet elegant. Even the headlight characterises the design, by combining the original elements and stylistic features of the Brutale range. The distinctive three element exhaust pipe remains another key visual component of MV Agusta Brutale.

The engine
The new three-cylinder engine 800 has a stroke of 54.3 mm and delivers power and torque of 125 hp at 11,600 revs / min limiter at 13,000 rpm. The maximum torque is also significant touching 81 NM at 8600 rpm., The power and torque curves are strengthened and increased ensuring prompt throttle response and a generous delivery across the entire rev range. This level of performance, associated with a dry weight of 167 kg, put the Brutale 800 at the top of the category "naked" setting the new benchmark.
With F3 675 and Brutale 675 the new Brutale 800 shares most of the components. and fundamental technical choices: first, the counter-rotating crankshaft, previously used only in MotoGP is able to offer the best balance while driving, reducing inertia when changing direction and thus increasing the manoeuvrability of the vehicle.
The shell moulded crankcase employs a "closed deck” with integrated bores and features integrated circuits for both oil and water, with internal pump unit location. This reduces component numbers and offers visual cleanliness to the engine exterior. The final transmission ratio is increased, by virtue of superior performance and through the mounting of a sprocket with two teeth less.

The electronics
Brutale 675 boasts the most advanced electronic management within its category. In its succession the Brutale 800 also excels by applying advanced race technology to mass production. The system MVICS (Motor & Vehicle Integrated Control System) ensures the integrated control of the vehicle and the engine: This allows combining management of the three cylinders with the traction control, to achieve high performance with safety. Technological innovation is epitomised by the use of Full Ride By Wire. The electronic control of the throttle body, which together with the mapping for injection, and ignition optimises the air-fuel mixture at all engine speeds of delivery, maximising available power and torque as a function on request from the rider. Compared to the traditional mechanical throttle, the Full Ride By Wire allows you to untie completely the rotation of the accelerator and throttle openings, leaving the task to electronics to achieve the optimum solution offering improved efficiency and a response exceeding the expectations of the rider. Brutale 800 system uses a multimap, with three preset modes and one fully customisable so you can choose the most appropriate delivery to meet specific conditions. The integration of MVICS includes traction control on eight levels, adjustable in seconds and visible on the digital dashboard intervening throttle, ignition advance and injection.

The frame
Handling, traction, ease of use and performance: The objectives of the project were achieved by focusing on the chassis with a mixed structure. An unmistakable trademark of MV Agusta, consisting of the front section steel tube trellis and two aluminium alloy plates, fulcrum point for the long singlesided swingarm, designed to ensure the most efficient transmission of power to the asphalt.

The suspensions
Improved performance through increased levels of control and variability: The MV Agusta Brutale 800 is fitted with an upside down fork and shock absorber with hydraulic response customisable. The upside down fork 43 mm in diameter, characterised by the excellent fluidity, with an excursion of 125 mm and is adjustable in compression, rebound and spring preload. The rear shock absorber provides 119 mm stroke, adjustable in compression, rebound and spring preload. Brutale 800, therefore, adds to the versatility of the Brutale 675 with increased suspension regulation that further enhance riding dynamics.

The brakes
Brutale 800 offers a braking system of the highest quality utilising a pair of front 320 mm diameter discs, with Brembo four-piston (32 mm diameter) radial callipers and also at the rear a high performance twin-piston (34 mm diameter) Brembo calliper, matched to a 220 mm disc.
