To celebrate the 59th Edition of the European Rowing Championship that will be held this weekend on the Varese lake, MV Agusta has decided to celebrate the event with a one-off livery (they always have a habit of doing special liveries) for their latest addition to the family, the Brutale 675.
The livery is inspired by the colours of the Italian Rowing Federation and its lake, that stands out on the upper part of the fuel tank, while four tricolore oars are disposed laterally. Other particular notes are the white wheels with blue stripe and MV logo on the external canal; the blue seat covers that use two different technical fabrics with yellow/gold stitching; the compact upper fairing above the dashboard with dedicated colours; Italian flag and logo of the model; finally, on the side panels, the writing “Varese 2012” in remembrance of the event.
If saying MV Agusta and reading Trepistoni gives a Pavolovian response, then you’ll be happy to know that the Italian manufacturer is alive and well and reporting a sales increase of +12% in 2011 and for 2012 have already received orders that are +100% compared to 2011, thanks to the new and stunning 3-cylinder mid-size models: F3 675 and Brutale 675 and the increase of the maxi Brutale family.
The above video shows off their new production lines designed by Porsche Consulting AG, and they have already started operating at double capacity to meet production demands, so obviously the sales of supersport bikes is not exactly waning for the Varese based company who prides themselves on giving the best of Made in Italy.
The PR blurb that accompanies the video is after the jump.
MV Agusta is at the 2012 Motor Bike Expo with all of its four hot new bikes, one for every corner of its stand. We are obviously talking about the mighty F3 and F4 R (that really seem to be going fast even when they are stalling) and the spectacular naked models Brutale 675 and 1090 R, all of which were also showcased at the 2011 EICMA in Milan last November. The Italian manufacturer never fail to impress the crowd with its stunning models, and the delighted audience of the Moto Bike Expo made no exception.

Here are the pictures of the eagerly awaited MV Agusta Brutale 675, taken live at the EICMA. The model will surely become a protagonist in the naked supersport market, boasting the technical mastery that is typical of European bikes and a price which is not too far from the Japanese competitors.
The engine is the same 675 cc 3-cylinder unit powering MV Agusta F3 , but obviously not as powerful: but toned down a bit: instead of the F3′s claimed 126 hp, the Brutale 675 peaks at 113 hp, with both models sharing the same maxium torque value of 71Nm.
This bike surely is a stunner, and is definitely one of the highlights of the whole Milan event. Take a look at our photo gallery (once again courtesy of our colleagues from Motoblog.it) and check that hot exhaust out: you will see it for yourself.

MV Agusta has released the first teaser of its new Brutale 675, the long-awaited bike from the Italian manufacturer that will soon take on the naked supersport market to compete with such bikes as Ducati Streetfigher 848 and Triumph Street Triple. The model will use a brand new three-cylinder engine that will be housed in a tubular-steel frame with aluminum side plates, and will be officially unveiled at the EICMA in about 10 days.
The video obviously doesn’t really show that much of the final version, but we can see that the tank looks quite similar to the one equipping the bigger Brutale, the head light is slightly different but maintains the model’s signature shape while the tail is quite small, has a few slits and bears the writing “Trepistoni” on it (’three pistons’ in Italian), which could be a part of the actual name of the bike or just a distinctive label for the 3-cylinder scheme. We will find that out in just a few days.
It was only yesterday that we reported on the rumoured difficulties of the MV Agusta F3 production, and now this new MV Agusta Brutale 675 spy shot has appeared timely to show, luckily and coincidentally, that MV Agusta plans are proceeding.
The Brutale 675 is basically a naked version of the faired F3 with the same triple exhaust outlet, but with plenty of characteristic Brutale style. We’re assuming we could see a 2011 EICMA presentation as the new, smaller Brutale is set to hit production in early 2012.
What’s more we’re hoping the rumoured 120 hp and €9,000 price tag prove true, as well. The Brutale is a symbolic model for MV Agusta and making mid-range naked could be a coup for the company.
