The RS isn’t the last Brutale 1000 variant to be announced this year, it seems. MV Agusta just dropped another limited-edition version of its flagship naked bike: the Brutale 1000 Nürburgring Edition.
For the unfamiliar, the Nürburgring is a legendary racetrack located in Germany. This circuit is one of the most infamous in the world for its length, elevation changes, and overall difficulty.
To honor the iconic track, MV Agusta has committed to making the Nürburgring Edition Brutale as performance-focused as possible. The first thing on the agenda is weight reduction. Among the bike’s new parts, the carbon fiber wheels developed with BST are striking. These rims feature lighter and stiffer billet hubs, which increase performance in turning, braking and acceleration.
Several components are also made of carbon fiber, simultaneously reducing weight and adding to the cool factor. Another functional and stylish bit is the carbon fiber headlight cowl with integrated winglets. MV Agusta claims that this aerodynamic feature can increase downforce at higher speeds, in turn helping the front end stay planted and stable when attacking long straights on the track.
The engine for the most brutal Brutale yet stays the same: a 998cc inline four-cylinder mill with 208hp at 13,000rpm and 116.5Nm of torque at 11,000rpm. Power can be boosted even further to 215hp with the corresponding racing kit. It contains a full-titanium Arrow exhaust system that comes with a race ECU pre-loaded with the appropriate engine map.
Rounding everything out is the silver and red Nürburgring Edition paint, which makes the bike look even more devious if it wasn’t menacing enough already.
Pricing starts at €39,900, or about P2,340,000. Interested in acquiring one of the 150 units for your collection? You’re in luck; MV Agusta Philippines is accepting reservations.
