MV Agusta has announced a more affordable, lower-spec variant of the famed Brutale 1000 RS supernaked motorcycle. While on the outside the bike gets an unchanged design and styling, there are very subtle cosmetic revisions that make it distinctive. 

The powertrain of the model remains unchanged. It continues to source power from the same 998 cc, 16-valve, inline four-cylinder engine which continues to deliver the same 205 bhp of maximum power at 13,000 rpm and 116.5 Nm of peak torque at 11,000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a six-speed gearbox. It has a dry weight of 186 kg.

One of the key differentiators on the new model includes the use of manually adjustable Marzocchi upside-down forks, and a Sachs rear shock, instead of the electronically-controlled Ohlins NIX EX forks, and TTX shock found on the top model.
