MotoRoyale, the professional retailer of MV Agusta motorcycles in India, could be bringing a constrained edition model of the intellectual Brutale 800 RR, which receives the ‘America’ suffix. We have seen many America-badged Agustas through the years, as the Italian manufacturer has produced similar confined-run fashions through the years. Only five such pieces can be coming to us of a, making it one particular bike. What separates America from the standard RR is the unique American livery in which the seats are draped in color crimson with the chiseled gasoline tank painted in blue. There are some white accents to finish the American appearance. Each motorcycle is badged with an ‘America Special Edition’ decal with a manufacturing run quantity. You additionally get a certificate of authenticity from MV Agusta for the equal.
Barring the obvious adjustments, there appear like no adjustments to the motorcycle. Nestled in that metal trellis frame, you get the same 798cc inline 3-cylinder raucous motor that makes a whopping 142PS at 12,300rpm! Even the height torque figure of 87Nm is formed at a ridiculous 10,100rpm. These figures are leagues in advance of its sub-liter magnificence bare opponents and the Triumph Street Triple RS, the Yamaha MT-09, and the Ducati Monster 821. In truth, it may be referred to in the same breath as several liter-class needs.
What the liter-class naked would not have, and the Agusta does, is a phenomenally low dry weight of just a hundred seventy-five kg! Hence, an ultra-light motorbike with enough strength on tap to by no means see your front stop sticking on the tarmac.
The unmarried-sided rear swingarm is sprung by using an adjustable Sachs unit. With splendid energy comes brilliant resp… erm… brakes. Brembo monoblocs clamp down on dual 320mm rotors on the front wheel, with the rear one getting every other Brembo unit appearing on a 220mm disc. The RR, like several Agustas, gets Rear Lift Mitigation (RLM) that keeps the rear wheel grounded, even as braking is difficult. And when your front ceases does land returned, you have got preload and rebound adjustable Marzocchi USDs to take care of the damping.
In October’s final 12 months, MotoRoyale launched close to seven motorcycles in a row, among which the Brutale 800 RR changed into the priciest, at Rs 18.99 lakh. Hence, we assume the America Special Edition to be even pricier – Rs 21 lakh (all expenses ex-showroom India) must be an honest assumption.
