Ahead of an upcoming first ride review of the Brutale 1000 RS, we ran it on the Cycle World dyno, gathering horsepower and torque performance numbers. The MV recorded a ripping 170.45 hp at 13,300 rpm and 74.44 pound-feet of torque at 10,970 rpm. The Brutale is all about peak performance, as reflected in both its power and torque curves. Near idle, the torque output is roughly 65 percent of its peak, and does not cross 70 pound-feet until between 9,000 and 10,000 rpm. Likewise, the power delivery surges around 8,000 rpm and doesn’t taper off until just before redline. Keep it spinning for maximum entertainment.
