  1. The differentiation between the three 2021 MV Agusta Brutale 800s is easy. The Rosso is a somewhat lower-spec “budget” model that is about 20 percent less expensive than the RR. The RR is the traditionally high-end Brutale 800, while the RR SCS adds the unconventional fully automatic Radius CX clutch designed in conjunction with Rekluse.
  1. The latest inline-3 Brutale motor is now Euro 5 compliant. Euro 5 compliance has been a common theme in 2021, and MV Agusta doesn’t get an exemption.
  1. Engine friction reduction efforts were made throughout the 798cc triple. The connecting rod and countershaft bearings are new, as are the crankshaft main bearings. Additionally, there are new DLC-coated tappets and sintered valve guides.

  1. New fuel injectors boast a 14 percent increase in pressure.
  1. The exhaust collector and muffler are new. According to an MV Agusta spokesman, the new exhaust system is designed “to improve engine tuning and optimize power [and] torque curves.” The result is a motor that puts out a peak of 140 horsepower and 64 ft-lbs of torque at five-figure rev counts. The Rosso is considerably detuned compared to the RR and RR SCS.
  1. The clutches have been upgraded. The standard clutch has improved engagement thanks to a new basket, and the SCS has a new pressure plate. A quickshifter is standard on the Brutale 800s, along with a new EAS 3.0 electronic gear sensor.

  1. The 2021 MV Agusta Brutale 800s get new engine management algorithms. The goal is a more direct feel between the throttle and the rear wheel.
  1. The steel trellis frame has new frame plates. To make the 800s more stable, the new side plates have added torsional and longitudinal stiffness.
  1. With the new frame setup comes new suspension settings. There’s a new linkage system for the shock, and suspension travel is increased by 0.2 inches. Otherwise, the standard settings and springs have been changed to reflect other chassis alterations.
