MV Agusta Pays Homage to Assen Circuit with Limited-Edition Brutale 1000 RR Assen

Italian motorcycle manufacturer MV Agusta continues its tradition of releasing limited-edition bikes that honor various aspects of its history. The latest addition to this lineup is the Brutale 1000 RR Assen, which pays tribute to the famous Assen Circuit, also known as the "Cathedral of Speed."

The Brutale 1000 RR Assen celebrates MV Agusta's 35 victories on the Assen Circuit, making it the most successful Italian manufacturer and the third most successful overall on the Dutch track. The bike, which is hand-made in Italy, is limited to 300 numbered units, symbolizing the brand's glorious racing heritage.

Developed in collaboration with the Assen Circuit, the Brutale 1000 RR Assen features special edition finishes and parts that enhance its already stunning appearance. From unique emblems and plaques to carbon fiber panels, aluminum side plates, blue Alcantara upholstery, and special finishing touches, this bike is a true work of art.

In terms of design, the Assen edition combines the colors Blu Nordico, Argento Ago, and gold to create an elegant and sporty color palette. This attention to detail extends to the bike's technical specifications, which include a Euro 5 998 cc inline four-cylinder engine producing 208 horsepower and 116.5 Newton-meters of torque. With a dry weight of just 183 kilograms, the Brutale 1000 RR Assen boasts an impressive power-to-weight ratio.

When it comes to performance, the Brutale 1000 RR Assen is equipped with top-of-the-line hardware. It features a 43-millimeter Öhlins Nix EC hydraulic upside-down fork and an Öhlins EC TTX rear shock, both of which are electronically controlled and damped. The front suspension offers manual preload adjustment, while the rear suspension features electronically adjustable spring preload.

Braking power is provided by double floating discs in the front and a single steel disc in the rear, all clamped down on by Brembo calipers. The bike also features Rotobox carbon fiber wheels and Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tires, further enhancing its performance and aesthetics.

In addition to its impressive specifications, the Brutale 1000 RR Assen comes with a Special Parts kit that adds power and exclusivity. This kit includes a Titanium Arrow exhaust, CNC-machined brake and clutch levers, a carbon fiber passenger seat cover, an aluminum fuel cap, and a motorcycle cover for storage and protection.
