In the corners, the sense of ability and grip on the Brutale 800 is excellent and makes you want to head straight to the racetrack. You're also aware of the stiffness of the ride, and a mid-corner pothole will give you something to think about 4

The intake at the front of the tank cover is a signature element of the MV, and it still takes pride of place on the 2017 edition. Looks smashing too and the intake roar as you wind the throttle on is brilliant 10
