MV Agusta has introduced yet another limited edition motorcycle, and this one pays homage to one of the most iconic racing circuits in the world – the Nürburgring. The bike you see on this page is the MV Agusta Brutale Nürburgring, and it’s simply a Brutale 1000 RR with carbon bits added in from head to tail. Only 150 units of the Brutale Nürburgring will be made, and the Italian manufacturer is producing them in collaboration with the track.
One of the most significant additions is the gorgeous BST carbon fibre wheels. These wheels also feature an innovative billet hub which MV Agusta says is lighter and more rigid than before. As a result, un-sprung mass is reduced, and the motorcycle accelerates faster, brakes better, and is more agile and responsive.
Every Brutale 1000 Nürburgring also features a full titanium Arrow exhaust. VisorDown reports that the 4-into-2-into-1 system couples cylinders one, two, and three and four and features a longer primary manifold, resulting in higher peak torque. Complimenting the new exhaust is a remapped ECU. No changes have been made to the 998cc inline-four engine, but the exhaust and ECU update have bumped power up from 208hp to 215hp.
There are minor visual differences as well. The headlight cowl is redesigned and features a small windscreen. The manufacturer claims this has been done to increase downforce on the front end at high speeds. However, its effectiveness is yet to be seen.
The last piece that sets this limited edition apart from the stock bike is a silver paint scheme with red accents. Pricing for the MV Agusta Brutale Nürburgring starts at €39,900 (around $46,000), making it a very expensive motorcycle. However, if your pocket runs deep, this is a Brutale that means business.
