motorcycle OEMs will debut at shows like INTERMOT and EICMA as the new-bike season is just around the corner and we’re starting to get glimpses of that.
The new Brutale is one of the two new bikes that MV Augusta is suppose to launch at the EICMA show, while the second machine apart from the 4 cylinder machine is a special edition three-cylinder model.
While the Italian company still limited by options owing to its financial situation, we don’t expect anything too crazy from for the 2017 model year.
However, MV Agusta plans on focusing on its core bikes, namely the Brutale line –
- The four-cylinder machines
- The three-cylinder machines with a fresh look
It will be interesting to see what solutions MV Agusta comes up with in time for EICMA, where we expect to see two new models.
For its four-cylinder Brutale, we expect the machine to use the current F4 superbike engine, bring some excitement to the model’s displacement choices.
The new Brutale is expected to be inline with other models in the streetfighter segment. We also expect to see MV Agusta’s well-sorted MVICS electronics package added to the mix, semi-active electronic suspension seems likely as well.
The MV Agusta F4 continues to need a model revamp as well, though our understanding is that a new superbike is still a couple cycles away from appearing. MV Agusta’s plan seems to be to revamp the Brutale, and using that as a springboard for the F4. Time will tell, of course.
