EICMA 2018: MV Agusta Brutale 1000 Serie Oro showcased
What you see in the images below is the MV Agusta Brutale 1000 Serie Oro. Yes, it is one of the most aggressive looking motorcycles showcased at the EICMA 2018 show. With the MV Agusta Brutale 1000 Serie Oro, the Italian motorcycle brand will be entering an all-new segment for this one is a 1,000cc machine. Powering the MV Agusta Brutale 1000 Serie Oro is a 208PS making 1,000cc engine that puts out 115.5Nm of torque. And if that is not enough, one can also opt for the SC-Project titanium exhaust equipped mod that increased the power output to 212PS at 13,600rpm. The four-cylinder layout of the engine has been taken from the previous offerings along with leaving the valve positioning unchanged. However, the MV Agusta team claims to have worked on the original design to make it sportier than before.
The camshaft timing has been tweaked while the titanium radial valves make use of new sintered valve guides that have been positioned in the CNC machined combustion chamber. In order to improve the performance and the efficiency, the piston gets low friction Asso compression rings. The crankshaft has been redesigned and has been a counter balancer to bring down the vibrations and losses due to the same at higher engine speeds. The lubrication route has been changed between the primary drive and transmission. The gearbox too has been worked upon to reduce the losses and noise.
Further, the airbox has been redesigned. The MV Agusta Brutale 1000 Serie Oro makes use of special resonators that has allowed MV engineers to do away with TSS system (variable height ducts). This has made the engine lighter by 1kg without compromising the performance and the power delivery. The naked offering from MV Agusta gets a double injector system which have been positioned near the throttle body and the above the intake duct. The helps precise fuel injection which in turn results in better performance and reduced emissions. The interesting looking exhaust pipes are claimed to be the best for this 1,000cc unit. This one comes with electronic exhaust valve which helps keep the regulations in check and also offer better torque.
The MV Agusta Brutale 1000 Serie Oro comes with a new ECU that has been designed in collaboration with Eldor. The electronics package includes full multimap Ride-by-Wire system that is regulated by an IMU. Further, the Brutale 1000 gets 8-level traction control, anti-wheelie system, launch control and EAS 2.0 Up and Down electronic gearbox systems.
In terms of design, the MV Agusta Brutale 1000 Serie Orogets all-LED headlights paired with cornering lights and DRLs. It gets a 5-inch colour TFT screen with smartphone connectivity that offers managing incoming calls, text and music. The naked motorcycle rides on carbon-fibre rims that have finished in special red shade. The use of carbon fibre has reduced the unsprung mass and intertia to maximum. It has also been used in the overall structure of the motorcycle including the tail piece. All of that paired with the CNC machined components have helped MV achieve a kerb weight of 184kg.
