The Brutale 910R marks the debut of Marzocchi USD 50 mmR.A.C. (Road Advanced Component) forks fitted to a productionbike. These forks are the most prestigious item made by theBolognese factory. They feature a multi-adjustable unit (13 compressionsettings and 32 for rebound) fitted with carbon nitridetreated uprights designed for improved slide characteristics. Thelooks of the 910R also differ in the anodized stays that add to theindividuality of this specific model. Rear suspension is looked afterby a Sachs single shock absorber with rebound-compression dampingand spring preload adjustment depending on a simple settingthat distinguishes between the absorption of a high or low speedshock.
THE BRAKING SYSTEM:
The MV Agusta Brutale 910R heralds the introduction of a Brembo brake system featuring radial P4/34calipers that are customized with the Brutale logo. This billet alloy braking system, derived from competitionSuperbike and Moto GP machinery, has a strut to provide increased rigidity mounted on radial adapters madeexclusively for MV Agusta. The enlarged 320mm discs with steel braking area and aluminum flange are also new.The rear brake remains an four-piston (opposed) caliper unit acting on a 210 mm disc. The Nissin-designedfront brake and clutch levers are exclusive to MV Agusta and can be micrometrically adjusted. The Bremboforged aluminum wheels with Y spokes are an entirely new design and measure 3.50″ x 17″ at the front and6.00″ x 17″ at the rear. Tires are 120/70 ZR 17 up front with 190/55/17 at the rear.
