The utterly gorgeous and intimidating MV Agusta Rush 1000 will hit the production lines in June this year. The monstrous litre-class naked motorcycle is based on the MV Agusta Brutale 1000. With the Rush 1000, MV Agusta has once again made the world realise why it is considered to be one of the best motorcycle manufacturers in the world.
In terms of design, the MV Agusta Rush 1000 is something that we haven’t seen before. It looks purposeful, aggressive, mission-ready. It has very compact dimensions for a litre-class motorcycle. There are several exquisite elements on the machine which we can just stare and admire.
The MV Agusta Rush 1000 features various carbon-fibre parts which have helped it to maintain the weight at just 185 kg (dry). Combine that figure with the 208 horsepower and 116 Nm that is produced by the 998cc, inline 4-cylinder engine and you’ve got yourself a recipe for a freaking rocket! MV Agusta has also got a Rush Racing kit in its cabinet which consists of lightweight titanium exhaust with a carbon-fibre cover, a pillion seat cowl, and a remapped ECU. This bumps up the power output of the motorcycle to 212 bhp. Top speed? Over 300 kph!
To keep all those horses in control, MV Agusta has incorporated a bunch of hi-tech electronics with the Rush 1000. There is 8-level traction control, Bosch 9 Plus Race ABS, bi-directional quickshifter, wheelie control, and launch control. The Italian brand also added four rider modes (Sport, Rain, Race and Custom).
MV Agusta will make only 300 units of the Rush 1000 and each one will cost a whopping 34,000 Euros (AED 137,465). It will lock horns with the Ducati Streetfighter V4 and Kawasaki Z H2.
