2016 MV Agusta Brutale 800: MD First Ride

"Newport Italian Media Report via MotorcycleDaily.com"

"It’s not easy being good looking (not that I would have first hand knowledge). If the first thing you provoke in onlookers is envy or jealousy, that can be a problem. MV Agusta makes good looking motorcycles, and they have done so for more than a decade now since the brand essentially relaunched. Always good looking, but not necessarily functioning up to the same standard.

MV Agusta considers itself a “super premium” brand, and it has had the aesthetic design and detailing to back up that claim. Having ridden the new MV Agusta Brutale 800 in southern Spain late last week, I have concluded that MV Agusta now has the function and performance chops to match up with its beautiful design. That’s saying a lot, as I will discuss below."
