This week, MV Agusta is expected to release information and photos of its latest 1090 Brutale models, the 1090, 1090R and 1090RR.

And to amp up the unveiling of the new models, MVA released the attached video, which teases the 2013 Brutale 1090 motorcycles.

Last year’s 1090RR, tagged “A superbike without fairings,” featured a 1078cc four-cylinder engine with radial intake and exhaust valves. The engine offered the highest power output ever by a Brutale. New camshafts, new intake tracts, new throttle bodies (same bore diameter as the F4) all contribute to the record power of 158 horsepower at 11,900 rpm.

Along with this high horsepower also arrived the latest in superbike technology, which included traction control with eight levels, new engine mapping and a slipper clutch.

What will change for 2013? We will find out soon. But for now, enjoy the teaser video.
