This is the first image of the MV Agusta Brutale 675 — a naked F3 — snapped by as the new model undergoes validation testing. What do we see? The same three-exit exhaust, frame, brakes and suspension as its faired sibling and bodywork very similar to that of the larger MV Agusta Brutale 990R that we reviewed in February. MV’s CEO, Giovanni Castiglioni, told us this baby Brutale will be, “priced below €9,000,” or exactly the same as a Triumph Street Triple R and specs leaked in March suggest the triple will be detuned from the F3’s 140bhp to a less peaky 120bhp. The Brutale 675 will enter production in February, 2012.
