Super-exotic, super-luxury super-naked
We’re living in weird times, so it’s nice to see at least some things stay the same. Like MV Agusta releasing insanely exotic, high-end motorbikes that come with Gucci-spec race kits, outlandish styling, and class-topping performance.
This time, it’s the 2021 version of the F4 superbike-based RUSH naked bike, that looks like a cross between a million-quid supercar and a stealth bomber. Designed by British design ace Adrian Morton (perhaps best known for the Benelli Tornado and its under-seat cooling fans), it combines a 212bhp inline-four litre superbike motor, with Agusta’s trademark steel tube trellis frame and cast single-sided swingarm.
Suspension is electronic semi-active Öhlins, brakes are Brembo Stylemas, the front wheel is a posh Kineo spoked unit, while the forged aluminium rear hoop has an audacious aerodynamic carbon cover. Weight is just 184kg, electronics are high-end and extensive, and the race kit includes an SC exhaust, race ECU, pillion seat cover and Galfer race discs, all packed into a wooden crate which looks like something you’d find in an Iraqi weapons dump full of RPG-7s or Type 56 rifles.
Price is around £34,000, and just 300 will be made. Get your order in now at www.mvagusta.com and when it arrives (and you’ve run it in) our standard offer of ‘a set of tyres and a Cadwell trackday’ for a go on it still stands. Cheers loves.
