MV hit a homerun in terms of the Brutale’s appearance. It’s got an elegant look that is modern and not overly edgy.
The Brutale’s two-piece Brembo set-up is strong and easy to modulate. Only problem is that the fork is so severely undersprung that it is near impossible to apply maximum braking force without locking up the front wheel.
While it is a little raw we like the outright performance of the MV’s engine the best.

You’d be hard pressed to find a better looking standard than MV’s handsome Brutale.
The Brutale allows the rider to tailor the response and feel of its engine. The display and functionality of its menu system could use some improvement.
The craftsmanship and quality of the Brutale continues to improve with each new version.
Our lady tester loved riding the MV. Though with its overly sensitive throttle it is a little tricky to ride—fast.
The MV’s soft suspension performed well for our 120-pound tester. Anyone heavier however will note it’s fast and un-nerving weight transfer when loaded with the gas or brakes.
The sounds the MV’s engine creates with the throttle pinned have to be heard to be believed. It’s one charismatic motorcycle.
