Missing cubes but still a great looking bike, the MV Brutale 750’s style makes up for its slight lack of substance.
Not just a pretty face…

UsedBikeGuide 2002-2004 MV BRUTALE 750

The early 2000s were a great time for fans of sporty naked bikes. Aside from the fairly mundane offerings from Japan (the Kawasaki Z1000 was the only ray of sunshine), you had the choice of the quirky Buell XB9 or XB12 models, the Triumph Speed Triple, the Aprilia Tuono and its hardcore sibling the Racing and a wide range of Ducati Monsters from the air-cooled café thumpers to the liquid-cooled beasts. And among all this was the MV Agusta Brutale 750, a swarthy Italian slice of exotica that was lacking a bit in the muscle stakes, but boasted film star looks and a diminutive sportsbike chassis.

Heavily based on the F4 750 sportsbike, the Brutale was initially teased way back in 2000 and appeared in ultra-exclusive Serie Oro (gold series) form later that year. But it wasn’t until 2002 that mere mortals were given the chance to buy one, provided they could stump up the fairly salty £10,500 price tag.
