(20-24) MV Agusta Brutale 1000 RR / RS / Rush / Nurburgring Stage 1+ ECU Flash With Tuner



2020-2024 Brutale 1000 RR / RS / Rush / Nurburgring

The 2020+ MV Agusta 1000CC Brutale is probably one of the most interesting hyper naked bikes we have tested this year. Every aspect of this bike is AMAZING! It's looks are one of a kind and the top end acceleration is almost violent. Tipping the scales at less than 400lbs (RING version), this bike also feels lightweight and has the handheld to back up it's brutal power. The MV uses an Eldor 2.1 ecu, which helps with the litany of features and MotoGP tech built into the bike. On board G meters and lean angle sensors, and other features really help the platform perform at another level. At BT Moto, we focus on niche bikes that require our help and change an already great bike to spectacular.

With the help of our engineers and testing (on the dyno and on the street), we have been able to streamline the much needed ECU development in a short amount of time. This has quickly turned into the best upgrade you can get for your Brutale with gains of up to +25WHP!


  • FUELING optimized for power and engine cooling
  • RPM LIMITER extended to 14400 for larger powerband
  • REVISED THROTTLE limitations to 100%, stock bike restricted to 66% throttle at redline, less than 50% for US spec
  • IGNITION TIMING optimized for power and torque
  • TORQUE dip removed in sport mode
  • SMOOTHER RIDEABILITY due to corrected fueling
  • THROTTLE RESPONSE optimized for street or race riding
  • +10-25WHP gain in high rpm over the stock Rush
  • MORE mid and low range power
  • THROTTLE SENSITIVITY modes still functional and optimized
  • Changes also apply to race ecu


Currently there are no real options to tune the new Brutale, so we used our experience in other markets and platforms come up with our own. Using a motorcycle dynometer, datalogging, and test riding, we were able to systematically fix the glaring deficiencies in the platform. Turning it from one of the "meh" ride feel to one of the most potent hyper naked bikes we've every tested. We all know the Brutale is a great, unfortunately we also know it isn’t perfect in its stock form. These are the issues we have seen ourselves and fixed. Through research and riding the bikes ourselves we have found what other customers have issues with and fixed the following:

  • First real tuning option on the market
  • Top end power falls off dramatically closer to the RPM limiter
  • 160MPH top speed, no use of high rpm in 5th and 6th gear
  • Acceleration that's jerky through the entire RPM range due to inaccurate AFR and throttle limits
  • Engine seems to struggle off idle to 4000rpm
  • Power that seems to level off (flatten) after 10,000 RPM with the throttle limiting in place
  • Dangerous power surge at 9,000RPM smoothed out

Dyno Testing

Dyno Testing

The graphs below represents a 2021 MV AGUSTA RUSH. We tested factory stock and BT Moto flashed. There were no hardware changes, just software. This bike is 100% factory stock, even down to the factory rubber. The gains are massive! Peak to peak we gained 10WHP but that's not where the story stops. We also gained 25WHP at peak RPM and smoothed out that nasty midrange where the power suddenly came on. Overall the bike is much smoother and gains a lot up top. The mid and low range do benefit over stock as well and gives the bike a much needed pickup from light to light riding.

RED: BT MOTO STAGE 1, 91 Pump Gas: 183whp / 83wtq

BLUE: STOCK TUNING, 91 Pump Gas: 173whp / 82wtq

Below you can see the Nurburgring Brutale 1000 Dyno. We found the Race ECU lacked A LOT and the bike was nearly unrideable. Keep in mind this is a factory stock bike with no modifications. With our flash we were able to smooth out the power surge at 9000 RPM, and overall gained a massive amount of power.

BLUE: BT MOTO STAGE 1, 91 Pump Gas: 186whp / 90wtq

RED: STOCK TUNING, 91 Pump Gas: 171whp / 77wtq

Nurburgring Dyno

**All in-house testing performed with 93 octane pump gas, unless otherwise stipulated. Different modifications and dynometers may make different power. Usage of a lower octane will yield smaller power gains. All power is measured from the wheel and not the crankshaft, whp (wheel horsepower) and wtq (wheel torque)**




Thoroughly tested by our own engineers, not just for its function but also durability.  We purposefully dropped this thing about 100 times just to make sure if you accidentally dropped it, it would still be a usable device.

So why buy it when you can just send in your ECU for flashing and spend less? Let's see the breakdown.

  • NO DOWNTIME - No need to send in your ECU or remove it from your bike at all.  You order the handheld, it get's delivered to you, you flash your bike.  You never miss a day of riding and no effort removing the ECU.
  • STORE MULTIPLE MAPS - When you send in your ECU, you only get one map.  You might be thinking, "why would I need more than one map?".  Storing multiple maps means you're able to flash for different fuels.  If you're a serious track competitor, we can work with you to get you different mapping for different tracks.  If, for example, you're add an exhaust to your stock bike, we can email you a file that takes the new exhaust into account with the changes you need to optimize your bike's new modifications.
  • GO BACK TO STOCK ANYTIME - Not only can you store multiple race maps, you can also flash the original, stock file back into the bike at any time and for any reason.

FAQ - Product Question

  • No and Yes.The BT Moto handheld tuner is VIN locked to the first motorcycle it flashes.This means any other motorcycle cannot use the handheld tuner. HOWEVER, should you decide to put the motorcycle back to the stock mapping, you're able to unpair it.The only way to use the BT Moto handheld tuner on another motorcycle is to unpair it from the first motorcycle.

  • 1) Plug the "My Genius" device into your computer

    2) Open our Flasher+/My Genius client software on your computer

    3) Click "Info" on our software

    4) On the bottom of that page it'll say last file written to ECU

    5) "Ori" means original (stock file)

    6) Mod files will be labeled and will correspond with what is shown in the "notes" section of each mod file drop down

  • The BT Moto handheld tuner stores multiple maps that you can change at any time. Unlike the mail-in ECU option, this means no downtime for your motorcycle while we do the flashing process. You can also go back to your stock mapping at any time you'd like and even read and clear engine faults. Additionally, some models will allow for DTC reading / clearing and maintenance light resets.

  • Yes, the end result is the same. Your motorcycle will now be flashed with our custom mapping, BUT with the BT Moto handheld tuner you're able to change maps for different fuels or go back to stock at anytime (along with many more features).

  • We recommend that you listen to your manufacturer's break-in procedures and do not flash until your motorcycle is fully "broken in". In the case with BMW this means waiting the 600 miles with limited RPM. We cannot circumvent the manufacturer's procedure. We are not able to remove factory enabled rev-limiters set in place at the dealer level and foregoing the first service will always result in warranty denial at the dealer level.

  • DO NOT FLASH YOUR MOTORCYCLE FOR THE FIRST TIME ON THE WEEKEND. Should an unforeseen error occur, no one will be able to help you until the following Monday. If it's your first time flashing with the handheld, please do it during the week while our technical support staff can help you if issues arise. Please do not start threads on Facebook or forums, please wait for our technical support to arrive back into the office and handle your situation.

  • Easy, you purchase the handheld, we ship it to you. Use the BT Moto handheld tuner to copy your motorcycles stock file (motorcycle will still run fine after this) then email that to

    BT Moto. We will then create a file from your stock mapping and email it back to you so you can upload it to the handheld. Once uploaded you'll be able to flash your motorcycle with the

    BT Moto handheld tuner.

  • No, this is not necessary. Assuming your motorcycle is running stock oxygen sensors the BT Moto flash will not need to be dyno calibrated.  If you're a person that needs to squeeze out every last bit of power (most will not need this), you can either bring the motorcycle to us for custom tuning with our flash or one of our partners, found on the partner's page of our website. If you're already running a Power Commander or some other piggyback fuel module that eliminates the stock oxygen sensors, you'll then need custom tuning on the fuel controller side.

  • Yes, you can go back to your stock mapping at any time you'd like and even read and clear engine faults and some models you can reset throttle and also maintenance lights.

  • This will depend on how fast you decide to ship to us and what you paid for shipping back. Shipping aside, once we receive your ECU expect us to have it back on the way to you within two business days.

  • If you have an aftermarket piggyback controller of any kind, you will be 100% responsible for your own setup and fuel adjustments after ECU mapping is installed to your motorcycle. Diagnostics and support is not available for third party, piggyback controllers.

  • Contact your dealer FIRST. This is the fastest way to get support. If your dealer has questions, they will contact us directly.

  • We ship UPS from Massachusetts. It is more expensive for international orders, but the product always arrives

  • ​Unfortunately due to each country and even some locations in the same country charging varying tariffs, we cannot tell you specific duties owed. We do ship most diagnostic tools with a $200 USD invoice, making the tax rate you are paying for on around $200 USD. ECU's are sent back with a "warranty return" invoice with them and a low value.

    • East Coast - 1 to 3 days
    • Midwest - 2 to 4 days
    • West Coast - 4 to 5 days

  • This depends on location. Most US orders will be around $30 USD or under for shipping standard sized items. International orders will be $120 USD and under for standard sized items. We are constantly working with UPS to get better rates and lower the pricing to many of our most popular international locations. As always you can consult with your local BT Moto dealer in regards to inventory to potentially help lower the shipping rate. Ordering in bulk can help better minimize shipping costs as well.

  • The BT Motohand held tuner stores multiple maps that you can change at any time. Unlike the mail-in ECU option, this means no downtime for your motorcycle while we do the flashing process. You can also go back to your stock mapping at any time you'd like and even read and clear engine faults. The mail-in is one map and you cannot change it unless you mail the ECU back in to BT Moto. Additionally, if the dealer were to ever issue an ECU update, with the handheld updates can be provided remotely while with a mail-in, you'd have to mail the ECU back in to get your old software back.

  • No you cannot. Due to issues with customers selling locked devices, improperly reset devices, broken devices and more, we no longer offer transfer of handheld devices outside of the original owner. If the original owner purchase another motorcycle and can provide proof of ownership, the device can be transferred to their new motorcycle, you would only have to pay for remapping.

  • No you cannot. The device is designed to be used on one VIN number. Once that one VIN number has been used it cannot be used on any other motorcycle. If you have 2 bikes in your garage and want to tune them both, both will need their own device and tuning package.

  • Anytime you take your motorcycle to the dealer they will first plug it into their diagnostic system to check for any software updates or recalls. If they see a software update available for your motorcycle, they will automatically update it without consulting you. This is a normal process followed by most dealers. Because of this update, the software version of your ECU is now different than the handheld and will result in an error message when trying to load your old tuned file. This means the handheld won't work with your motorcycle and it has to be reset to work again. If you go to the dealer, make sure you let them know not to update your motorcycle's software if you're flashed. Always always always make sure to put the original stock file on the motorcycle through our handheld tool BEFORE bringing it to the dealer.

    If the stock file was not used the device will be locked up. If it is a Flasher+ tool a $125 reset fee will reset the device and then $100 to remap it back to it's previous flash level. If it is a PowerGate3+ device, a new device will have to be purchased as there are no resets available for that device.

  • When shipping is paid for on the website it means shipping from us to you.  This charge has no bearing on how you decide to ship your ECU to us. That is entirely up to you but we do recommend UPS exclusively as they have an amazing success rate of package delivery for us.

  • Go to "Work" -> "Writing" -> "Original" in the handheld and then it'll load the original factory stock file to your motorcycle

  • If you have reached out to your dealer and have received no response in (2) business days, email us directly for support.

  • No we cannot.

  • We are on the east coast of the United States and open Monday-Friday from 10AM-5PM. Please keep this in mind when emailing us. We recommend you don't do any flashing of your motorcycle on the weekend because we aren't in the office to help you with your issues, should any occur.  If you email early in the day, we should get back to you that day, if not, the next. Officially we stick to a 48 hour window on replies but typically we are much faster. If you haven't heard from us within 48 hours, please bump the email thread as maybe it was missed. If it's before 48 hours, do not call or email as it will delay the process. Expect a longer response time if you email us on Friday night as we won't be back in the office until the following Monday.

  • Email us the issue and await a response. Will will get to your email as soon as possible. We work from bottom of emails to top, so by bumping your thread multiple times, you will effectively put yourself at the bottom of the queue. Please keep in mind our shop hours when awaiting a reply.

  • This is the brain to your motorcycle. It is fragile and should be shipped as such. Keep in mind the shipping company may be drop, throw or accidentally kick your package. This means get a larger box than the ECU and fill it with soft packing that can absorb any impacts or damage the box may sustain. If you don't know how to do this take your ECU to a shipping outlet and ask them to package the ECU securely. DO NOT SHIP YOUR ECU IN A PADDED ENVELOPE!

  • Usually just the ECU but some will require more items. Make sure to read the product details at the top and bottom to get a full understanding of what's needed for your flash along with the product order form you will be sent. Example: A 2017 S1000RR ECU mail-in requires ECU, Key, Ignition and Gauge cluster while a 2017 K1600 ECU mail-in requires just the ECU. Again, it's vital to read ALL of our notes and instructions on each product and the product order form you receive and follow accordingly. In addition to the ECU and potential other items, you will also need a paid invoice and product order form in the box.

MV Agusta support is here.

Talked to the PDM guys (socal) and they spoke very highly of bt moto, who worked through their fleet of new mv agusta bikes to build custom tunes. Based off this when mine arrives in a few weeks I have this tuner waiting for me, after all the bad things ive heard about the rush "race" ecu. Look forward to going 200mph!
