Agusta Brutale

This is the MV Agusta Brutale, the naked Agusta that didn't really get the sales they expected.
It's kind of ugly IMO, and it doesn'thave the nice exhaust set up of its sister sportsbike.
What do you think?

Why do you think they named it the "Brutale"?

Once you try track, you never go back.

Brutale in Italian means 'Brutal'

It was the first of a new design trend, but it 's also very expensive.
I like better the classic style of naked bikes like ZR7, XJR etc.
The Cagiva V-Raptor sold much better, although it's even uglier!
I prefer the simple Raptor 1000, the 650 is really popular in Europe.

Yeah? If you won the Lottery big time, I bet you'd have one in your stable.

I like it! Would rather have a 900+ than a 750 four though.

Suck mean people!

The Brutale S will be available in February if you re interested.
It is the cheaper version of the Brutale serie oro (gold series) without all the hi tech metal parts (titanium, magnesium, carbon fiber), using aluminium and plastic instead.
It can be yours for only 10500 GBP!!
Cheap compared to 20000 GBP for the Serie Oro

Ditto! I seem to recall rumors of a liter engine in development.
