Brutus is claimed to be the Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) of motorcycles
Brutus runs a single cylinder, 45 bhp, DOHC, four-valve, liquid-cooled 750cc engine with electronic fuel injection
Brutus' 220 kg puts it in the same weight category as the 1000cc adventure tourers such as the Ducati Multistrada and BMW 1200 GS
Brutus should not be confused with the EV of the same name

Alessandro Tartarini, son of Italjet founder Leopoldo Tartarini, has designed what is being touted as a new motorcycle concept
Now here's a motorcycle with a difference. Alessandro Tartarini, son of Italjet founder Leopoldo, this week used the EICMA motorcycle show to present a new motorcycle concept. The aptly named Brutus (not to be confused with the existing Brutus electric motorcycle), is billed as "the SUV of motorcycles," runs a fuel-injected, 45 bhp, 750cc, single-cylinder engine with a CVT and optional reverse gear and weighs in at just under 220 kg (485 lbs) – about the same weight as a BMW 1200 GS or Ducati Multistrada. So does this genuinely represent a new genre of motorcycle?
