The MV Agusta Brutale 920 is an Italian made bike in production since 2011. It has a liquid cooled, four stroke, four cylinder, DOHC 921 cc engine. It has a maximum speed of 164.5 mph (265 km/h).

MV Agusta considers the Brutale 920 to be a budget price motorcycle. The bike is available in black or black with a white fuel tank, it appears less flashy then its other brothers and competitors. It is not beautiful, however it wasn't meant to be, it's muscular, mean and exposed look lacks any bodywork aside from the fuel tank and tail section. Despite being entry level it doesn't skimp on power or fuel economy. The 920 has a 5.1 gal (19.3 L) tank that provides between 39-45 mpg. (16-19 kpl).

The engines four cylinders and radial valves, outputs 129 hp at 10,500 rpm. The engine runs very smoothly at lower revs, but with a slight twist on the throttle, fun ensues. The engine is a similar model that powers the rest of the MV Agusta line. The 920 has a smaller bore size but shares the same 55mm stroke. Two engine modes are available, 'Sport' where the response is instant and sharp, giving the bike an urgent feel, power comes quick here and town riding is jerky. In 'Normal' mode the delivery softens and the bike becomes less demanding to ride.

The MV Agusta Brutale 920 is listed in Bike Magazines 'The Indispensable Bike Guide', rated 4 out of 5 stars. Bike Magazine comments 'Entry level MV still means £10,000, power and sharp handling.' and 'High-quality, capable but a little rowdier than Japanese bikes'. They still recommend you try out the 920 before buying a Tuono. The MV Agusta is available in North America as the Brutale R for $15,000.
