800cc Euro Triples Streetfighter Faceoff

With a 33cc displacement advantage, the Brutale 800 churns out more power earlier than the 765cc Street Triple and holds its edge until nearly 9000 rpm. However, the revvier Triumph comes into its own when the tachs are spun up, as the MV’s curve flattens and its rev limiter cuts in at 11,000 rpm while the Trumpet lunges for its 12,500-rpm redline. The Brutale’s output is 7 hp leaner than the previous version; blame Euro 4 regs.
