Today, fifteen years after its first appearance, the New Brutale 800 is once again taking on the future. Fully redesigned and yet still tied to its origins, the New Brutale 800 is more effective on the road, delivers more efficient performances and it is naturally more beautiful.
With a new take on its proportions, modelled on more sculpted shapes and focused on the front end, the New Brutale 800 enhances the reinterpretation of the main stylistic features, such as the elliptical shape of the headlamp, now a Full LED, and the three-pipe exhaust, with increased shape and capacity (+ 3 litres).

A record maximum torque, increased by 25% with 83 Nm at 7,600 rpm, with 90% of the value already available at 3,800 rpm.
In addition to the counter-rotating crankshaft, another unique feature is the fact that the new Brutale 800 is the only one its category with electronic EAS 2.0 up&down gear shift. The slipper clutch is now hydraulically operated while the engine is managed by the MVICS system which includes
