VARESE, ITALY – The 2013 four-cylinder MV Agusta Brutale models — Brutale 1090, Brutale 1090 R and Brutale 1090 RR — are now available in ABS versions incorporating two riding modes, Normal and Race Mode.
The ABS unit employed is the Bosch 9MP, the market leader offering the maximum performance in the lightest and most compact package, which makes it the ideal unit to incorporate into the limited amount of available space on the Brutale. The Bosch ABS unit incorporates internal pressure sensors, which work together with the independent wheel speed sensors to give the internal control system the required vehicle information.
The ABS has been developed with the precise objective of offering the most secure and effective deceleration in all riding conditions without sacrificing the braking power and progressivity for which the Brutale has become known.
In order to offer the maximum freedom to all riders, on all three Brutale models the ABS system can be deactivated by the rider by way of the vehicle control software via the menu in the speedometer. Additionally, on the Brutale 1090 RR there is the Race Mode, which can be utilized specifically on the race track or during aggressive street riding.
