MV Agusta Brutale 800 (2013 onwards)

The MV Agusta Brutale 800 is an Italian super-naked bike with insane amounts of power and tons of character. With its incredible top speed and horsepower, it is one of the fastest and most powerful motorcycles you can ride on your A2 licence.

The bike is positioned as an entry-level option in MV’s street bike range, although it is priced higher than most of the competition. It is not the best option for beginner riders, but rather for motorcyclists with years of experience and aggressive riding style.

The regular Brutale 800 model is actually too powerful to be ridden on an A2 licence, but MV Agusta has released an A2-legal 70kW version that can be factory restricted to 35kW to comply with the A2 licence requirements.

Please note that the below specifications are for the regular non-A2 compliant MV Agusta Brutale 800 model, rather than the 35kW / 70kW A2-compliant one.

A2 Licence Compliance

The MV Agusta Brutale 800 is a 798cc A2-friendly bike. It has a power output of 92 kW (125 bhp), which exceeds the 35 kW (47 bhp) limit needed for an A2 licence. The bike has to be restricted by at least 61.9% to become A2 licence compliant.

You will need a restrictor to ride the MV Agusta Brutale 800 on an A2 motorbike licence. See the restrictor kits section to check out what restrictors are available for the MV Agusta Brutale 800.
