MV Agusta Sign Deal With Lewis Hamilton!

Remember last year, when MV Agusta and F1 star Lewis Hamilton got together, and created a special LH44 Dragster 800RR? Well, they’re at it again!

This time around, rather than just bling (LH loves a bit of bling!) up a current model, the deal sees Hamilton help create a brand new model – completely! Although we reckon, using components already to hand, given how much creating a brand new bike from scratch costs.

Giovanni Castiglioni, and Will Smith’s mate from the Fresh Prince of Bel Air…

MV boss Giovanni Castiglioni is well chuffed at the new partnership:


“I met Lewis a few years ago when he called up our Customer Care asking in a very humble way to buy a special bike. After having developed some 1/1 bikes for Lewis we turned our common passion into a partnership with the creation of the successful Dragster RR LH produced in 244 units. I’m very excited and proud to continue this cooperation that will see new MV Agustas co-designed with Lewis entering the market in the next month.”

Hamilton, too, is as pleased:

“I am very excited to continue my partnership with MV Agusta. I love working with Giovanni and the guys at MV Agusta, their passion for engineering and attention to detail produces quite stunning, original looking bikes. My projects with MV Agusta are a great way to combine my love of riding bikes with my interest in creative design process so I am very much involved with the CRC (Castiglioni Research Department) design team throughout.”


Now we just have to wait to see what the pair comes up with!
