The other day we wrote about gentleman, sportsman and MV Agusta founder Count Domenico Agusta’s classic Riva yacht from 1970.

As we noted, the Italian motorcycle marque still makes some pretty mean machines.

The new Brutale R 1090 with a 144 hp, radially-valved engine

Their latest fire-breather is the Brutale R 1090, with a 144 hp, radially-valved engine.

In addition to superbike looks it also has an eight-way adjustable traction control system to keep you from flying off the handlebars, so to speak.

Obviously Count Domenico’s spirit lives on….
