MV Agusta takes the ultra naked concept to an extreme with the new Rush. Created as a limited edition of just 300 units, this unique and exclusive bike raises the bar in terms of design and performance. Never has a naked boasted such an elevated style and finish. For 2021, the Rush gets several updates that make it even sportier but also safer to use on the road. This bike is unrivalled on the market and comes with an equally exclusive kit to further heighten its performance and aesthetics.
The extremely high-performance engine (now Euro 5 compliant) uses sophisticated materials and flaunts record-breaking power for a 1000cc naked, delivering 208 HP at 13,000 rpm. A new camshaft design offers more favourable torque at low/medium revs without detracting from the intense drive and acceleration that has always distinguished this engine. MV Agusta has also used a DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coating for the surfaces of the valve buckets cuts down on friction and improves reliability.
The 2021 MV Agusta Rush has an advanced electronics package that includes traction control, wheelie control, cornering ABS, launch control, cruise control, and whatnot. The motorcycle also features a 5.5-inch TFT display that offers all kinds of information and can communicate with the MV Ride app, a real command centre that lets the user customise every aspect of the bike directly from their smartphone while also offering more ‘traditional’ functions, such as recording and sharing itineraries.
MV Agusta has also tinkered with the frame of the new Rush that makes the motorcycle even more rideable. The electronically-controlled Ohlins EC suspension is fully adjustable to maximize rider feeling and comfort and improves load transfer control and the ability to dampen any unevenness, making the new Rush an even more efficient bike. The full Brembo braking system with radial master cylinder and Stylema calipers is simply state-of-the-art.
To top it all off, MV Agusta is also providing an exclusive kit with the 2021 Rush. A unique bike like the Rush deserves an equally unique kit. Each of the 300 units, complete with the certificate of origin, will be delivered to the customers with a series of accessories to further heighten its exclusivity. The racing kit includes elements like an SC double-exit exhaust, race ECU, carbon exhaust cover, CNC fuel cap, pair of auxiliary lights, and much more.
