Making 165bhp, the MV Agusta Brutale Cannonball is 20bhp more powerful than the MV Agusta Brutale 1090RR it’s based on. The Cannnonball is a special, track-only edition of the naked bike intended to illustrate what MV’s factory hop up parts are capable of.
That power comes courtesy of a new ECU, cylinder heads, hotter cams,
some unspecified valve work and the sexy titanium exhaust that lends the
dainty Brutale a much needed dose of mechanical aggression.
The Cannonball has also been crashed through the bodywork section of the
MV parts catalog, gathering a seat hump and a bunch of carbon bits in
the process. The whole point of this exercise appears to be to promote a
new interactive customizer on MV’s website, or at least that’s what the
press release says, there’s no sign of any such thing on MVAgusta.it.
