Varese, 5th November 2018 - Racing is the ultimate test bench of every engineering design, the
unrelenting battlefield where every component is stressed to the extreme, pushed to the very limit. It is
the “laboratory” where new technical concepts are taken to be experimented with and, in some cases
conceived, with the sole focus of achieving the maximum possible performance. Power output must be
strong and explosive, while the electronics must be extremely refined to allow the rider to harness all the
power, bending it to his will.

This introduction is necessary in order to understand the essence of the all-new Brutale 1000. Closely
associated with the F4 RC Superbike, which has proven its potential battling for the top positions in the
World Superbike Championship. All the experience that has been accumulated on the racetrack has been
poured into the engine of the Brutale 1000 Serie Oro, which sets new records for absolute power while
still complying with pollution and noise regulations, making it more advanced in certain aspects than the
competition powerplant.

Engine and electronics Engine and electronics
The four-cylinder engine does not betray MV Agusta tradition in terms of technological choice, but it does
open a new chapter were materials, design and electronics are concerned. A painstaking job that has led
to a record peak power of 208 hp at 13,450 rpm with a torque of 115.5 Nm. These incredible levels make
this engine one of the most powerful naturally aspirated four-cylinder engines in production and the
Brutale the most powerful naked sports bike in the world. With the dedicated racing kit, consisting of an
engineered SC-Project titanium exhaust system and dedicated ECU, the maximum power is increased to
exceptional value of 212 hp (156 kW) at 13,600 rpm.

While remaining loyal to the traditional transverse four-cylinder layout and continuing with the decision to
employ radial valve positioning in the combustion chamber along with a central timing chain, unique
technical characteristics employed only by MV Agusta, the engineers have revolutionised the original
design, leaving only a few castings untouched in the process.

The titanium radial valves now slide through new sintered valve guides and open up into an entirely
redesigned and CNC machined combustion chamber. The camshaft timing has been revamped, with the
phasing updated on both the intake and the exhaust sides. The pistons use new low friction Asso
compression rings to improve performance and efficiency, while the crankshaft was redesigned from
scratch and rebalanced to reduce to a minimum the vibrations and resulting parasitic power losses at the
high rpm.
