MV Agusta Unleashes An Aggressive Carbon Fiber 212HP Superbike

Just days after the release of the new Brutale 1000 RR, MV Agusta has now pulled the cover off of yet another wildly-exotic naked production model that continues the Varese marque’s tradition of pushing the design envelope. Christened the Rush 1000, the ultra-unique streetfighter is built around the aforementioned Brutale 1KRR platform while taking visual inspiration to the drag-racing scene.

At the heart of the 408lb (dry) Rush is the liquid-cooled, 998cc, inline-four banger found in the newly-updated Brutale 1000 RR, which pumps out 86ft-lbs of torque and 209hp in stock trim — 212hp with a special track-only exhaust setup — all of which is kept in check via a full suite of electronic rider aids. Suspension components come from Sweden and Italy’s finest: a fully-adjustable Ohlins TiN-treated NIX EC fork and TTX mono-shock supplemented by an electronic steering damper and radial-mount Brembo four-pot Stylema Monobloc calipers paired with 320mm discs. Other notable elements include full carbon fiber bodywork held via titanium fasteners, a titanium SC-Project exhaust with carbon end caps and heat shield, and CNC’d aluminum tank cover and rear-sets. The back wheel is also a CNC’d item shrouded in carbon fiber covers while out front there’s a top-of-the-line spoked Kineo rim.
