MV Agusta has launched the 2022 Brutale 1000 RS, a slightly ‘cheaper’ version of the Hyper-Naked Brutale 1000 RR. It arrives with the same 208 HP engine in a slightly more comfortable package, perfect for everyday use.
The Brutale 1000 RS continues with the same aggressive and muscular design as the RR model, but some items such as handlebars, pedals and seat have been adjusted for a more upright and comfortable ride.
Some items are a little more ‘simple’, to allow for a lower price, such as the suspension and wheels kit, as well as finishing in some parts.
But the heart of the RS remains the same as the RR, a liquid-cooled 998cc in-line four-cylinder engine capable of generating up to 208 HP (153 kW) of maximum power and 116,5 Nm (11.9kgfm) of torque.
Safety doesn’t change either, with the Brembo brake kit. At the front, there are two 320 mm floating discs and 4-piston Brembo Stylema calipers with radial mounting.
The suspension, as mentioned, is a little more ‘simple’, with Marzocchi inverted fork at the front and Sachs shock absorber at the rear, both adjustable. On the RR model, the suspension is by Öhlins.
The electronic package is still packed, featuring Cornering ABS, Traction Control, Electronic Quick-Shift, Wheelie Control, Launch Control, 5.5″ color TFT panel with Bluetooth connection and GPS navigation, among others.
Finally, the MV Agusta Brutale 1000 RS is offered in Europe for €25,500, that is, €6,800 less than the top Brutale 1000 RR model, which costs €32,300.
