MV Agusta To Race BSB In 2013

Mon, 29 Oct 2012 00:00:00 -0700

News from Varese, Italy, has MV Agusta making a return to racing, choosing the British Superbike Championship as the series where it will campaign two factory-backed entries. The British Superbike Championship (or BSB) is arguably the most exciting domestic series in the world. It implemented new rules for 2012 designed to keep costs manageable by limiting the modifications allowed, which has resulted in tight racing the whole year.

2013 MV Agusta Brutale 1090, 1090R and 1090RR Revealed

Mon, 22 Oct 2012 00:00:00 -0700

MV Agusta teased its four-cylinder Brutales last week with a video, and today, the Italian manufacturer released official details on its three-model 2013 Brutale 1090 line. Despite the 1090cc labels shown in the teaser, it appears the new Brutales will keep the 2012 models’ 1078cc engine displacement. The base-model MV Agusta Brutale 1090 will be joined by a slightly pricier 1090R version and an even higher level 1090RR (pictured above).

MV Agusta Teases 2013 Brutale 1090 Line-up – Video

Thu, 18 Oct 2012 00:00:00 -0700

MV Agusta released a video teasing its three-bike four-cylinder 2013 Brutale lineup. Joining the Brutale 675 in MV Agusta‘s naked streetbike offerings will be the Brutale 1090cc, the Brutale 1090R and the Brutale 1090RR (pictured above). The base model MV Agusta Brutale 1090cc will replace the 920 version that was offered in 2012, which shouldn’t be a surprise with the launch of the 675 version this year.

A masterful display by Shakey and might we see MV Agusta at the TT next year?

Tue, 16 Oct 2012 00:00:00 -0700

I was interested to see none other than William Dunlop doing some shakedown testing on a very nice MV 675 F3 at Donington recently. The bike appeared failry standard  but sounded sweet and looked pretty rapid out on track. Ohlins technician Richard Brendish was gathering information and helping with set up but reckons no definite decision has been made on where we might see MVs racing next year.   Back to sensible riding and after dropping in for a brew at Shires Motorcycle Training (Derby) the lovely Emily was telling me if your thinking about taking your bike test (especially if you’re 17) it’s not a bad idea to get it done now.

MV Agusta F3 racer

Mon, 08 Oct 2012 00:00:00 -0700

I spotted this MV F3 race bike at the Intermot show and wanted to share it with you. The picture doesn't do the size of the bike any favours at all. It is almost microscopic in size and made the - already tiny - Aprilia RSV4 it was parked next to, look bulbous.

MV Agusta to Introduce All-New Model at EICMA 2012

Thu, 31 May 2012 00:00:00 -0700

MV Agusta is developing a new model to be revealed at the 2012 EICMA show in November. While it isn’t that surprising an Italian manufacturer will have something to show off in Milan, the big news is the new model will not be a sportbike or a naked but a new motorcycle segment for MV Agusta. Rumors of a new MV Agusta have been circulating for a while, gathering momentum when the company recently trademarked the name “Rivale”.

2012 MV Agusta F3 675 to be Featured on National Geographic Channel

Thu, 10 May 2012 00:00:00 -0700

The MV Agusta F3 675 will be featured in an upcoming episode of the series “Ultimate Factories” on the National Geographic Channel. The episode takes a look at the MV Agusta‘s factory in Varese, Italy, and examines the design, development, testing and assembly of the new F3. “Ultimate Factories” (also known as “Megafactories” outside the U.S.) examines the inner workings of factories producing goods from Apache helicopters to Jack Daniel’s Old No.

One-Off Ferrari Tribute Motorcycle Sold for $137,700

Wed, 02 May 2012 00:00:00 -0700

A one-off officially-endorsed Ferrari motorcycle has been sold at auction, taking in 85,000 British pounds (US$137,700). That’s a hefty sum for a motorcycle, but far less from the initial reserve price of 180,000 pounds asked for when the bike was first up for auction in 2008. The Ferrari motorcycle was designed and built by former MV Agusta engineer David Kay in 1995 as a tribute to the Italian car-maker’s founder, Enzo Ferrari.

2012 MV Agusta F3 and Brutale 675 Available With or Without Quick Shifter

Tue, 27 Mar 2012 00:00:00 -0700

MV Agusta announced both the 2012 F3 675 and the naked Brutale 675 will be available with its Electronically Assisted Shift (EAS) system. The EAS allows for quick shifting without needing to close the throttle or apply the clutch. The EAS quick shifter was previously available for just the F3 as an optional accessory, but MV Agusta says it will offer EAS-installed and non-EAS versions of the F3 and the Brutale.
