The Italian manufactured 800cc MV Augusta Brutale motorcycle in Japan

MV Augusta BrutaleAn Italian manufactured MV Agusta pulled into the shop today for a new rear tire and lubrication. Originally these were Meccanica Verghera Agusta motorcycles and have been manufactured since 12 February 1945 near Milan in Cascina Costa, Italy. The company began as an offshoot of the Agusta aviation company formed by Count Giovanni Agusta in 1923. The Count died in 1927, leaving the company in the hands of his wife and sons, Domenico, Vincenzo, Mario and Corrado. Count Vincenzo Agusta together with his brother Domenico formed MV Agusta at the end of the Second World War as a means of saving the jobs of employees of the Agusta firm and also to fill the post-war need for cheap, efficient transportation.

Today, Augusta builds this remarkably well engineered cafe racing style motorcycle the 800cc MV Agusta Brutale. There are a few of these motorcycles selling in Japan every year but there aren’t enough skilled mechanics to keep them maintained and repaired for owners. The water cooled engine on the 800cc MV Augusta Brutale is very compact and runs much hotter than most other motorcycle engines. We use nothing but the best high quality oil and sometimes synthetic to maintain these high performance motorcycles.
