The RS is technically fully equipped. There are lean angle sensors, lift detection for front and rear wheels, TFT colour display, cruise control, launch control and connectivity for the smartphone. Thanks to the "MV My Ride" app, the rider can make all settings either on the bike or via smartphone - and there are really many of these settings.
We really like the luminaire design of the MV Agusta Brutale 1000 RS. At the front, a Porsche-look headlight greets you with LED daytime running lights, which can be switched to low beam via an extra switch. The rear light is very wide through the air passage the whole thing looks like a UFO lighting. All lights including the turn signals are equipped with LED technology.
Operation is carried out via a single (!) Toggle and pressure switch on the left. This works surprisingly easy, even if thanks to the many options the right "menu page" has to be found at the beginning. The readability of the reflective display is good, even if - typically Italian - the numbers are sometimes a bit playfully small & italic.
