Nürburgring, is perhaps considered by many petrolheads as the mecca of motorsports. Throughout its almost 100-year history, this 25.4-kilometer racetrack saw a lot of records set. From F1 cars to superbikes, it’s all there. Due to the track’s rich history and the challenge of driving or riding through it provides, it is flocked by thousands of drivers and motorcycle riders from all over the world to test their skills.
In honor of such a great track, MV Agusta has released the limited edition Brutale 1000 Nürburgring.
According to MV Agusta, only 150 examples of the Brutale 1000 Nürburgring will be made, starting at an SRP of EUR 39,900 or roughly PHP 2.341-million. As the name implies, this new bike from the House of Schiranna is based on the existing Brutale 1000RR, packing the same Euro-5 compliant 998cc 16-valve inline-four powerplant that produces 210 Ps of power.
What separates this from the ‘other’ Brutales, on top of their specs and features is the inclusion of race-spec upgrades developed from the World Superbike Championship. For starters, a full titanium 4 into 2 into 1 Arrow exhaust is installed, improving the Brutale Nürburgring’s torque over the RR.
MV Agusta also touts the Brutale 1000 Nürburgring to be lighter than the other Brutales, tipping the scales at only 177 kg dry, thanks to the assortment of carbon fiber components. This includes the carbon fiber wheelset which was developed in partnership with BST, a company that specializes in carbon fiber technology.
Other features include top-shelf Öhlins Nix EC and EC TTX electronically-adjustable suspension system, Brembo brakes, 5.5-inch full-color TFT display, ride modes, GPS navigation, an assortment of rider aids, and Mobisat tracker.
As you can expect, all these special upgrades make it ideally suited to conquer the "green hell." While MV Agusta hasn't revealed the Brutale 1000 Nürburgring's official lap time on the famous course yet, perhaps we'll hear about it very soon.
