Can't see how you missed it if you went to their site, it's listed in the header with the other models

http://www.mvagusta.it/en/brutale800


It is the same exact bike as the B675 just has the stroked 800 motor and upgraded (fully adjustable) suspension.

I had some interest in the B675 until I read that there was an upcoming B800. I will seriously be considering between the B800 and the 13 Triple R. It's all gonna depend on availability and how much $$$$ they want for the B800. I'm definitely leaning more towards the 13 Triple R due to price (obviously is less expensive than the MV) and there's a Triumph dealer less than 10 miles from my home whereas the nearest MV dealer is close to 45 miles away (but it is a beautiful ride to get there). I know it's redundant (given the multiple threads on the subject) but the Duc Streetfighter 848 is my dark horse.

The B675 from the reviews I've read/watched is a small bike. The testers were shorter than I am and all said it's a "small" bike.

The main thing that interests me in the MV 800, is that it is almost 100 pounds lighter than the S3... that is A LOT of weight, the S3 is a little piggy of a bike.

I wouldn't hang on the MVA claimed dry weight ..... typically for them that means absolutely no fluids (in the past that has meant not even brake fluid) and most times no battery. Would prefer that manufacturers had to quote curb weight with a full tank so an honest comparison could be made.

Just got off the MV site to check out the B800 and I must say it's definitely eye candy!
If the weight is really 368 dry they have something going there. By the time it hits the States the $12,910 US for the base model will put it way up there once you add shipping, set-up, tax, etc., probably close to the Speed Triple "R" range.
Also, what's with the vent hoses just hanging down along the right side of the engine in the 4th photo of the gallery shots?

To be honest if I were to go middleweight MV I'd still do the 675 . Let the hype die down so the the price dies down with it . The only thing I've heard bad of the 675 is that it's not as refined as the Daytona/Striple . To me it sounds like the Triumph with the ECU stuck in the performance setting with the surging or whatnot .
But for what they want for a 800 you can find a gently used 920/1090 for less.

That's the look of the MV who're so sexy compared to Triumph...

But, i've lost my wife because i was not been faithful with her, so i'll try to stay faithful with Triumph..

The Speed Triple is a handsome and manly motorcycle (and I don't like the droopy Transformers headlights on some bikes these days), and 1050cc has a lot of torquey pulling power. Like I said a 3-1 system (even more power!) and a Shorai 18Ah battery will drop a lot of high weight, and there is aftermarket bling galore for this bike. Btw you can add another 50 lbs to the 'dry weight' of that MV for a realistic curb weight. - Wayne

Ok, so 60-70 pounds heavier. Making the MV a Street Triple, with balls.
