2011 MV Agusta Motorcycle
MVAgusta’s extraordinary build-quality and attention to detail are still evident, but the 2011 Brutale 1190 has been re-engineered to make it friendlier.
Brembo radial brakes with plenty of feel, huge 50mm Marzocchi forks, and a fully adjustable Sachs shock at the rear are firm, yet compliant and comfortable.
The inline-four engine that puts out 144 horsepower (claimed) and more torque than a Ducati 1098, now has traction control and fuel mapping that has eliminated the abrupt behavior of previous models.
Redesigned ergonomics give the rider a lot more room, so the Brutale is now not just an exquisite-looking precision instrument; it is also a highly capable, real-world motorcycle.
