Motoroyale India has announced via Instagram that it will extend its product portfolio with the launch of the MV Agusta 800 RR America Edition very soon. The exact launch date and prices are still undisclosed. Globally, the MV Agusta Dragster 800 RR America is limited to just 200 units, five of which would come to the Indian market.
The Brutale 800 RR America Edition pays homage to the “S America 750”, a model that dates back to 1975, which boasted an in-line four-cylinder engine with dual overhead camshaft, 75 horsepower and air cooling.
The motorcycle features a special livery that is in a combination of Red, White and Blue – the colours in the American flag. The fuel tank, for example, gets blue paint along with a red centre and white colour on the sides. The red stripe on the top of the fuel tank flows onto the saddle. The upper part of the fuel tank is adorned with stars, just like on the 750 S. The seat features stitching with gold highlights. The flyscreen features the "Brutale 800 RR America Special Edition" tag along with a progressive production number.
The spoke wheels too pay homage to the colours of the American flag – featuring red hub, blue spokes and white rim. The side of the radiator also gets the "America Special Edition" decal. The motorcycle comes with a certificate of authenticity.
Powering the MV Agusta Brutale 800 RR America Edition is a 798 cc inline three-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 12-valve engine that is tuned to deliver 140 hp of maximum power at 12,300 rpm and 86 Nm of peak torque at 10,100 rpm. The motor is mated to a six-speed gearbox with a slipper clutch and can propel the Brutale 800 RR to a top speed of 244 km/h. The transmission features MV EAS 2.0 (Electronically Assisted Shift) for both up & down gearshifts as well.
The Brutale 800 RR America features 43 mm Marzocchi inverted telescopic hydraulic forks and Sachs rear monoshock. Stopping power comes from 320 mm double floating discs at the front and a 220 mm single steel disc at the rear.
The MV Agusta Brutale 800 RR America Edition would most likely carry a premium over the standard motorcycle, and, so expect it to cost approximately INR 20 lakhs (ex-showroom).
