It’s not up for MO’s 2021 Best Value or Best Anything, but if we had a Most Likely to Knock Your Eyeballs Out, the new MV Agusta Brutale 1000 Nürburgring might very well take it. The level of detail on these things is just amazing. In fact, even though they are pricey, they’re worth it. Especially when you factor in the standard cruise control. Whip around the Nordschleife a few laps, then sedately back to Monte Carlo on the autobahn in time for the earlybird special at the casino.
Highlights of the 52-page press kit include:
On the first lap, a few meters ahead of you, only asphalt. Seams to lay on a roller coaster. All around you the silhouettes of trees, a forest, a green wall and the blue sky. On the second lap, when you think you’ve become familiar with the surrounding, you immediately recognize that the guardrail is placed there, right in front of you, ready to hug you. Better beware. On the third lap you realize you are in the presence of the most difficult and magical circuit in the world. You’re riding the Nürburgring, along the North ring, the famous Nordschleife.
Based on the admired 1000 RR – Euro 5 compliant – and the impressive inline four-cylinder engine developing 208 hp, the MV Agusta Nürburgring is built in partnership with the historic German racetrack, a true icon of sporty riding at top levels, recognized all over the world. Reduce weight, this is the priority. This means a particularly effective braking response as well as faster changes of direction. The most extreme Brutale ever stands out also for its dynamic performance, achieved thanks to significant interventions that focused on chassis and technical equipment.
Latest generation carbon rims, for example, developed in close collaboration with BST. In this version the billet hub is even lighter and rigid, thus improving the whole efficiency. The weight saved has therefore a double value because involved unsprung masses. Inertia decreases, with very sensitive effects when accelerating, and braking. Additionally, changing direction becomes even faster, more responsive and enjoyable.
An element that says a lot about the uniqueness of the MV Agusta Brutale Nürburgring is included in the rich and esoteric kit, available for each model: that’s the beautiful full titanium exhaust system, an offshoot of MV’s experience in SBK and built in collaboration with Arrow. Specifically, the standard 4-in-1 scheme has been replaced with a 4-in-2 technical choice (coupling cylinders 1-2 and 3-4), featuring a longer primary manifold, in order to set new torque values record. Then the exhaust continues with a single manifold and a single silencer, a solution which minimizes the overall weight and ensures maximum power. The kit includes the control unit with dedicated map.
Constant aerodynamic research has resulted in a small winglet: it has the appearance of a compact fairing, positioned in the headlight group area. It aims to increasing the charge on the front end at high speeds, contributing, together with others premium aerodynamic elements, to optimize driving dynamics. The kit includes other components, such as the exhaust cover and the passenger seat cover, both available in carbon fiber. Lastly, MV Agusta Brutale 1000 Nürburgring stands out for its specific metallic silver base which perfectly contrasts with Nürburgring red brushstrokes, developed on a completely original graphic base.
A unique choice to celebrate the most extreme MV Agusta Brutale ever, offered in limited and numbered edition with a specific plate placed on the right air intake (XXX / 150).
