Motoroyale by Kinetic brought the new 2017 Euro 4 compliant MV Agusta Brutale 800 to India at a not-so-affordable price tag. The Brutale 800 is one of the most exotic middleweight motorcycles out there and despite coming to India via the semi-knocked down (SKD) route, it will set you back by INR 15.59 lakh (ex-showroom Pune).
What you get for that price tag is one of the finest looking middleweight motorcycles that money can buy today. The new Brutale 800 enhances the reinterpretation of the main stylistic features, the elliptical full LED headlamp and the three-pipe exhaust. The chassis is carved out of light alloy, which blends in with the 16.5 liter trapezoidal tank. MV Agusta says that the design of the new Brutale 800 reveals a constant search for symmetry, in the color, the creation of the foot peg mounts, the ducts and the front headlight supports. The Brutale 800 also includes a double saddle, concealed passenger handles, rear light and LED indicators.
Then there is that sweet sounding 798cc in line 3 cylinder engine which, with its 109 bhp of power at 11,500 rpm and 83 Nm of torque at 7,600 rpm, can propel the Brutale 800 to a claimed top speed of 237 km/hr. It also gets a 8-level traction control.

The hardware list is pretty solid and that engine, though not the most powerful in the class, still packs good amount of firepower. It is also the most expensive middleweight roadster in the country today. Here’s how it is placed against its rivals:
- MV Agusta Brutale 800 : INR INR 15.59 lakh
- Yamaha MT-09 : INR 11.36 Lakh
- Ducati Monster 821 : INR 10.86 Lakh
- 2017 Triumph Street Triple S : INR 8.50 Lakh
- Kawasaki Z 900 : INR 7.68 Lakh
But you don’t buy an MV Agusta only for its performance or its technical prowess. You buy it out of sheer love for motorcycles, and for the sense of pride that you get when people who see you riding acknowledge your refined taste.
