As you can see, you don’t see anything: clutch lever without adjustable reach. Saving at the wrong end.

A lot inside, but packaged small and difficult to read: the MV dashboard. The handlebar is positioned comfortably and within easy reach.

Wipe it away: the MV Agusta Brutale 800 RR is the counterpoint to the Streetfighter. Turns in as light as a feather, pampers you with comfort, but also doesn’t come close to the stability of the Ducati Streetfighter 848.

The Ducati Streetfighter 848 is rather tough. Honest. And rough.

In comparison, the MV Agusta Brutale 800 RR is extremely manageable. But it can also be snappy.

The torque curve shows that the Ducati Streetfighter 848 doesn’t like speeds below 3000 rpm. From then on it accelerates powerfully and shovels a full Nm extra on the crankshaft from a good 7000 revs.

Duel of the Italian 800 nakeds

Streetfighter and Brutale: Anyone who bears such names ignores conventions and everyday suitability. Or not? What remains when the smoke of burnout has cleared? The comparison test of the Ducati Streetfighter 848 and MV Agusta Brutale 800 RR will show it.

Dark clouds move across the sky. Today the fair weather drivers stay at home. Good for free roads with no safety vest junkies. The goal: crisp slopes, smoking tires, fun. No 1000 point rating, the stomach as a decision-making aid. There is a choice of two naked potency men of the 800 league. Tea D.ucati Streetfighter 848 leans casually on the side stand. She knows about her legacy in the Bolognese program. The last of its kind. The 848 Evo sport bike stripped, the Testastretta engine with eleven degrees of valve overlap planted in the classic cane. More a deep, downward-cranked tubular handlebar. Finished.

Duel of the Italian 800 nakeds

Streetfighter 848 not necessary. Maybe that’s out of fashion. But still turns on. The MV Agusta Brutale 800 RR naturally sees it differently. Your three-pipe organ pipes would not be possible without a front silencer. The sound fits, we turn a blind eye again. The Brutale presents itself from the first meter as everybody’s darling. Inconsistent engine response? Strange injection tuning? Bone-dry landing gear? These chapters disappear in the book of brutal history. The naked derivative – derived from the sports cannon F3 – caresses you with the best of manners. Italian chic meets Japanese functionality. Oops, where is the street fighter? Between the two wheels of the MV.

MV Agusta Brutale 800 RR sweeps through the speed ladder

What the engine delivers not only kindles a fire in the combustion chamber, but also kindles every heart. As if stung by the tarantula, the MV Agusta Brutale 800 RR sweeps through the speed ladder. In the second, casually lifts the front wheel. The show is right. Except when burning. If the rear wheel spins, the traction control catches it again. And the engine is off. Therefore switch off the spin preventer beforehand and wear a dark visor so that nobody sees the embarrassing red light if the important switch-off command is forgotten. The pilot of the Ducati Streetfighter 848 just smiles casually about it. His traction control doesn’t care about rubber-burning rear wheels when stationary. The Streetfighter doesn’t care what you think of her anyway. The V2 Italian is like a firm handshake. You can bear it – or give yourself up while standing. Need an example? Just the seating position. That sends the personal trainer into unemployment. The handlebars are bent far forward and down – push-ups are the order of the day. In addition, the bench drops sharply forward.

If male street fighters don’t pay attention when braking, there’s egg salad. Love it or leave it. It goes on like this. The clutch: not for the faint-hearted. The handling: nothing for the hesitant. The smooth running: nothing for high-minded people from the bottom up. The stability: fantastic. The Ducati Streetfighter 848 is different. And captures you with it. If you get involved with them. Lets you run. Keep the pulse of your engine in the comfort zone. That is the way to happiness. At least for a short term. Because the Duc costs strength. She doesn’t care about tour mode and relaxation. She wants to be driven. And drives you at the same time. As long as you are in good shape, endorphins whiz through your brain. But at some point there will be a break. And then the MV Agusta Brutale 800 RR just sticks past you. From the dream of sovereignty in the fight for pole position.

Weaknesses in Italo bikes are often dismissed as a character

The rebel has run out of breath. Time to clean up. And clarify. Often, weaknesses in Italo bikes are dismissed as a character. Bullshit. If something works badly, it doesn’t deserve praise. Basta. The Ducati Streetfighter 848 is not softened. Motorcycling with her is not a self-exercise, goal at strenuous experience. It works flawlessly. But she demands. That is what sets them apart. Her character: You have to work your way off the asphalt strip with her. The reward: you put it in the garage in the evening, have a beer and feel a bit proud of what you’ve achieved. It wasn’t easy, but you are deeply content.

The MV Agusta Brutale 800 RR approaches the matter differently, already offers a seating position without any deviousness. To do this, she cuts ideal lines as finely as a scalpel cuts the skin. It is the hyperactive counterpart to the Ducati Streetfighter 848. The MV sweeps around the corner on the shortest line. Falls into an inclined position without resistance and balances you eerily on the next straight with the finely adjustable power of its triple. If the streetfighter is the one for all powerlifters, model athletes without fat take on the brutal. With what your left foot has to do to change gears on the Streetfighter, you can sort through the entire transmission range on the Brutale. Thanks to the automatic switch with blipper function. And if you can glide through the next spa town in fourth gear with 30 on the clock, no residents will be frightened. Very suitable for everyday use, the 800 from Varese. Far from brutal. So is the name just disgraceful delusion? Quasi a bad boy for all newfangled I-am-bad-hipsters? Perhaps. Your manners suggest this at first glance.

Ducati Streetfighter 848 does not have a steering damper

Until you unpack the knife between your teeth for the first time. 1380 millimeters of wheelbase, 66 degrees of steering head angle and 95 millimeters of caster: The MV Agusta Brutale 800 RR derives its superb handiness from these values. In terms of stability, however, it also has to give up a few springs. When the Ducati Streetfighter 848 flies through the radii as if it were tightly dampened, the MV allows more chassis movements. The Duc does not have a steering damper, the MV needs one. It is almost completely closed at the factory. And not without reason. If you drive the MV through the bumpy curves, cheering for revs, you should know exactly what you are doing. The MV can also be angry. She is like the wolf in sheep’s clothing. Long makes them tame.

Until you wake her fat appetite for full throttle and curves of all kinds. Then she demands a knowledgeable hand. Is no longer for posers who just want to bask in their shine. The last Gummiqualm has disappeared. The tester’s stomach has decided. Should the others make it suitable for everyday use. We keep the black leather and the helmets with the dark visors on and give the bad guys a bit more. This role can be played pretty well with the Ducati Streetfighter 848 and the MV Agusta Brutale 800 RR.

Performance measurements

Performance chart.

Tea torque curve shows that the Ducati Streetfighter 848 doesn’t like speeds below 3000 rpm. From then on it accelerates powerfully and shovels a full Nm extra on the crankshaft from a good 7000 revs. You can surf quickly on country roads. Shortly after 10,000 rpm it is over again. The usable speed range on the MV Agusta Brutale 800 RR is significantly wider. 

It is already down on the gas and takes another deep breath shortly after 6000 rpm. From this mark on, it turns lively and toxic to the limiter just over 13,000 turns. A blazing fire above, a reliable partner below, the MV Agusta Brutale 800 RR can do it.
