The official unveiling of the new MV Agusta Stradle 800 is only a week away at EICMA, but in an otherwise slow news week, Indonesian website TMCblog has not only come across some new pictures of the Ducati Hyperstrada competitor, but the full specifications too. This somewhat conveniently coincides with MV Agusta releasing a new ‘teaser’ image of the bike today.
The MV Agusta Stradle 800 uses the same three-cylinder engine as the Brutale 800, though power and torque are down slightly at 115 bhp (84.5 kw) and 57.9 lb-ft (78.5 nm). There’s no obvious reason for this decrease that we can see from the rest of the specifications, so we’re assuming it’s may be a way of making the bike more ‘rideable’ at the lower and mid-range of the engine.
The wheelbase of the bike is shorter than the Rivale 800 by 80 mm, while overall length is up 45 mm. Seat height has increased by a fairly large 60 mm. Dry weight is up 14kg (around 30lb) but that would in part be due to the saddlebags and larger windscreen. In a nice touch, the saddlebags have integrated turn signals and brake lights.
Brakes and wheels appear to be identical to the Brutale, while the front suspension has an additional 25 mm of travel. The bike will also come with MV Agusta’s latest software which provides torque control, traction control, abs and the electronic quickshifter.
