MV Agusta Brutale 910


MV Agusta Brutale 910 is a mirror of the Brutale 750 S. We really enjoyed riding the 750, but the 910 has got something more. Its rev-range is like a 600 on steroids with more oomph than any 750. The new midrange really impresses us and on the road it feels as if it is never ending and power is portioned smoothly with a proper kick at the top. The handling package is as great as ever and the new Dunlop D208RR's work well on both the dry and wet. We would still like more feel from the six-piston Nissin callipers but both the magnum 50mm Marzocchi fork and Sachs mono shock works perfect with the rest of the chassis. Any MV Agusta is a very special piece of engineering where attention to detail is unrivalled. It is equally special to ride and I get a kick out of it every time. It does not matter how many exotic bikes I ride and test, the MV feeling is still there. And folks, it would still be if it had the 750 engine! As far as I am concerned the new 910 engine is just a bonus because both bikes are good enough to be a top drawer choice. It poured down with rain when we picked up the bike from 3X motorcycles in the South West of England. Still it handled perfect and we had full confidence in the chassis and tyres after just minutes riding the bike. Luckily we had many dry miles as well. We rode down on Honda's mighty Gold Wing and jumped straight on one of the most compact streetfighters with a brutal new engine. Brutal might be more playing with words than reality, but the 136bhp motor really did excite with its endless drive and great top end power. A V-twin with poorly adjusted fuel injection is what we would call Brutal. The engine sound is just like a growling fighting dog amplified with the best equipment from Denon. It is definitely a design sound if you know what I mean. No Japanese in-line four ever sounded like this. If you're not too hot on touring loads of miles this is the all-in one motorcycle. It is practical for commuting into the city centre, great for Sunday morning rides and track days. Differences from the 750 is: 910 logo on the tank, rev counter with new numeric scale and logo, 910cc engine with 136bhp @ 11.000rpm and 96Nm @ 7.900rpm. Click on the title for a great onboard video.
