The four-cylinder engine does not betray MV Agusta tradition in terms of technological choice, but it does open a new chapter were materials, design and electronics are concerned. A painstaking job that has led to a record peak power of 208 hp at 13,450 rpm with a torque of 115.5 Nm. These incredible levels make this engine one of the most powerful naturally aspirated four-cylinder engines in production and the Brutale the most powerful naked sports bike in the world. With the dedicated racing kit, consisting of an engineered SC-Project titanium exhaust system and dedicated ECU, the maximum power is increased to exceptional value of 212 hp (156 kW) at 13,600 rpm.
While remaining loyal to the traditional transverse four-cylinder layout and continuing with the decision to employ radial valve positioning in the combustion chamber along with a central timing chain, unique technical characteristics employed only by MV Agusta, the engineers have revolutionised the original design, leaving only a few castings untouched in the process.
The titanium radial valves now slide through new sintered valve guides and open up into an entirely redesigned and CNC machined combustion chamber. The camshaft timing has been revamped, with the phasing updated on both the intake and the exhaust sides. The pistons use new low friction Asso compression rings to improve performance and efficiency, while the crankshaft was redesigned from scratch and rebalanced to reduce to a minimum the vibrations and resulting parasitic power losses at the high rpm.
