2004 MV AUGUSTA BRUTALE 750
Auction Sale Estimate: $14000 - $18000
Capable of 155mph (electronically limited!), the Brutale 750 is, quite frankly, as the name suggests – brutal. However, it is also a bike with a wide range of composite curves and shapes which make the Brutale a complex machine to measure. But, to be sure, the immense rigidity of the cage frame, massive swing-arm and monstrous front end are not there just for the brutal looks. The thing is immensely quick to change direction, it has a reputation for having lethally precise steering and wicked overall performance. With 127bhp on the hoof, this machine recalibrated the meaning of ‘street bike’. Naked, it is an extreme super bike that successfully walks the line between classic and avant-garde. With the Brutale, MV Agusta seemed to have bridged controversial yet complementary extremes – it is a high-design piece that demands true combative awareness from the word ‘go’.
