2013 MV Agusta Brutale Corsa Preview

Expanding its offerings of its Brutale 1090 lineup, MV Agusta releases the ultra-exclusive Brutale Corsa model.

The Corsa takes the top Brutale 1090 model, the 1090RR, and further enhances its naked-sportbike splendor with fully-adjustable Ohlins front suspension, ultra-light forged aluminum wheels, and a hosts of styling upgrades.

The Brutale Corsa arrives with the 158-horsepower version of MVA’s inline-four 1078cc engine that features dual-overhead camshafts and four-valves per cylinder arranged in a radial pattern. Also arriving on the Brutale Corsa is an eight-level traction control and ABS.

The Corsa’s engine, which produces 74 ft. lbs. of torque, is cradled inside a steel tubular trellis frame that works in conjunction with the front Ohlins nix 43mm fork and Sachs rear shock absorber attached to an aluminum single-sided swingarm.

Stopping the 403.5-lbs (dry weight) Corsa are 330 mm dual discs brakes up front squeezed by Brembo monoblock front calipers, and a 210mm single disc squeezed by a Nissin caliper out back.

As mentioned, the Corsa receives loads of styling updates, from “the frame finished in gloss black paint and the hand-stitched rider and passenger saddles to brake levers, rider foot pegs and brake and clutch fluid reservoir caps machined from solid billet.

“The tank guard has been created specifically for this bike, while the sports license plate mount and the carbon fiber rear mudguard and front mudguard spoiler are branded with the MV Agusta Corse logo.”

The Corsa will be available in ABS Race Mode Version only donning Pearl Red/Pearl White paint. The price for such an exclusive motorcycle out of Varese? A bit under $30,000.
