Rough Crafts MV Agusta Brutale 800 – Predator Art

Rough Crafts Taiwanese builder transformed a Brutale 800 RR into an astonishing machine

Rough Crafts got their hands on a Brutale 800 RR. The result is a custom piece of art which embodies both top manufacturing quality and high-spec components. 

The first thing you notice is the large Predator-like nose. “While looking at old pictures of vintage racing GPs, we saw these bikes with full dustbin fairings. I decided this was the biggest visual reference I wanted to put into the design,” says Winston Yeh – the builder – on a bikeexif.com interview.

Unlike the classic ones, Yeh’s dustbin’s fairing turns with the fork, has a compact profile and starts a curve that continues with the wings. The fairing elements are built using carbon fiber and can be removed in a couple of minutes. There’s also a clamp for a headlight over there, in case someone wants to ride it on the road.

The dashboard was moved to a specially-designed place n the fuel tank. 

Another state of the art element is the exhaust, which bears the HP Corse Signature. Other high-spec parts: Ohlins FGR 800 fork and Beringer custom-set brakes. The wheels and the rear sprocket are also custom-built.
