2022 MV Agusta Brutale 1000 RR: All Out Brutality
The Italian brand MV Agusta presented this extreme hyper naked from its 2022 lineup, an exaggeratedly powerful motorcycle with a different aesthetic that makes it unique.
The MV Agusta Brutale 1000 RR mounts a four-cylinder 998 cubic centimeter engine with low-friction technology and a ride-by-wire electronic throttle. This is managed by an inertial measurement unit (IMU), which regulates the traction control, rear wheel lift, and anti-wheelie system. In addition to these aids, it has launch control and MV EAS 3.0 (Electronically Assisted Shift Up & Down).
We find a CrMo Steel tubular trellis and adjustable swingarm pivot height in the new cycle part. At the same time, the suspension comprises a complete kit by ÖHLINS that consists of the Nix EC fork and the EC TTX shock absorber, both with electronic regulation. The braking system relies on Brembo with the Stylema series, assisted by a continental ABS from the MK100 series.
Other highlights include full LED, roadside lights managed by the inertial measurement unit (IMU), daylight, and a 5.5-inch TFT screen with a Smartphone connection via BlueTooth.
MV Agusta engineers achieved excellent stability considering this motorcycle can pass the 300 km/h mark by implementing similar wings used in Moto GP, which begin to perform above 200 km/h.
The 2022 MV Agusta Brutale 1000 RR starts at $37,798 USD / $43,264 CAD

2022 MV Agusta Brutale 1000 RR Features
Thanks to the new inertial platform, traction and wheelie controls are even more effective and precise, which improves safety but also with the utmost attention to obtaining the best possible performance, as you would expect from an uncompromising hypernaked. The EAS 3.0 electronic gearbox is more precise and smoother when shifting.
The use of titanium for the connecting rods and for the intake and exhaust valves is an indication of the high quality that characterises the Brutale project, which from the very beginning blazed a trail of technology, style and performance. The rider interface is also a point of excellence, thanks to the 5.5” TFT panel, the multifunction electrical controls and the MV Ride App, which allows you to set numerous electronics and engine parameters directly from your smartphone.
The introduction of Continental ABS with cornering function is the culmination of a constant evolution aimed at improving rider and passenger safety. The braking system is number one in terms of power and ease of handling, thanks to the wide diameter discs, Brembo Stylema calipers and the radial pump for handlebar control. To improve ergonomics, the saddle has been redesigned, while the footrests are now forged.
